Wintex connection issue

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, recently purchased a microsoft surface laptop and annoyingly can not connect to Tex panel via Wintex.


The USB comms lead doesn't give any flashing and the software keeps coming back with " Com port specified not available".


I believe it might be a driver issue but no idea where to go from here.


Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.


thanks in advance.

Most likely it's down to the COM port selected, try different combination of physical ports and COM port until you get a connection?

Setup > Modem > PC-COM

If it's the fancy newish black lead I would expect the FTDI driver to install automatically on first connection, but I don't really play much with Windows.

I would expect something like right click properties and then find the update drivers option?

Would suggest it's best to let Windows do it if you can, especially as it seems to know it need updating.
