You may have a problem if you are running Vista64 as your operating system.
I have 3 USB to serial adapter cables and if I left them plugged in to the
computer during bootup Vista64 would assign new COM port numbers to them.
When I got up to COM18, COM19 & COM20, and my logging software would only go
up to COM16 I knew I had a problem.
I purchased a 2 port PCI to serial adapter on eBay and no more problems.
