Problem Serialport Class GetPortNames RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I have a problem in using the GetPortNames function of the SerialPort class. Among the values returned by the function, I have some of them which look like that : "COMXXc", with XX the number of the COM ports. Where the 'c' come from ? The COM ports with the 'c' are virtual ports created by a connection to a Bluetooth device via a Bluetooth dongle.

    I looked in the registry in \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DEVICEMAP\SERIALCOMM, the data in the keys linked to the virtual ports don't have this 'c' character.

    Best regards,
