4.2 Configuration and Settings

4.2.1 Com Port Designation Set Up


To check the Com port assigned to a USB device after installation, open the Device Manager. Expand 'Ports (COM & LPT)' to show the Com Port that has been assigned.

You may have to restart your computer after adding a new USB device, before that port will be detected by the Levelogger Software.

After installing a USB device, should the Com Port number assigned to the device conflict with your existing devices, it is possible to change the Com Port designation number:

  1. Click Start > Settings > Control Panel
  2. Click Systems to open the System Properties
  3. Click the Hardware tab and click 'Device Manager'
  4. Double Click the Ports Icon and select the 'USB Serial Port'
  5. Right click and select Properties
  6. Click the 'Port Settings' tab and click 'Advanced'
  7. Select the Com Port Number and click 'OK'
    Note: the path to the 'Port Settings' tab may be different for each Windows operating system. The above is just a guideline.
