WinRT currently does not support for Serial COM. Please refer to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/apps/hh464945(v=VS.85).aspx.

we can't operate the COM port in the Windows store app in any way......

This isn’t a scenario we targeted. The option of last resort – is you write a custom driver, which isn’t an option for everyone, and even then it can only be accessed by one privileged app declared in device metadata. A desktop app may be a better answer.
