I assume by this you have a RS232 serial adapter which plugs into the USB 

If that is what you are trying to do the answer is ...maybe......You will 
need to load  either as a DOS  driver (that came with the adapter)  or in 
the properties section under the device manager you may (or may not ) find 
a box to check that enables the ability to run the USB/COM in DOS mode. It 
all depends on how good the DOS driver is and how it is implemented and how 
well the adapter is designed.

The odds are not in your favor
