OPEN a COM port

 OPEN a COM port

Ang Li Kai asks about a problem in opening COM3.
Ang - can I just point out that unsupported QuickBASIC 4.5
can handle only two serial ports, namely COM1 and COM2.
Therefore you should not be trying to open COM3. Try using
either COM1 or COM2.
However, QuickBASIC can be made to access as many as
four serial ports by making use of certain DOS services.
(Microsoft Knowlwdgebase have a note on this)
- hope this helps.
