    General discussion

  • Hi all,

    I find that my computer Ports Update Driver button was disabbled. Repro steps:

    1. Right click My Computer->Manage

    2. System Tools-> Device Manager in Computer Management

    3. Choose Ports(COM & LPT)->Communications Port(COM1), Right click -> Properties

    4. Choose Driver tap in Communications Port(COM1) Properties

    Now, I just find Update Driver, Roll Back Driver, Uninstall button was disabled. How can I enable these button? Any body can help me?

  • Hi,

    There might be several reasons for this. Your company's administrator might have blocked you from changing the drivers?

    This is not a development question though, so you might want to ask this in an appropriate forum.

    Kind regards

  • Is this a question about Windows XP?
