Windows 10 problem with commMg.au3 serial send to arduino

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I usually use the include commMg.au3 to control the Arduino through some COM port via serial,  in previous versions of Windows until version 8.1 works perfectly. Recently I updated my windows to version 10 and when I use this include no longer works and the error that appears is "Port does not exist." Someone is going through a similar situation? Please can help me solve?

CommMG.au3

commg.dll

testeporta.au3

I have same issue but with other virtual serial devices including Bluetooth SPP which used to work under Win7 but now returns "port does not exist".

_CommListPorts returns "COM9|COM6|COM10|COM8"

_CommSetPort ( 9, $err) returns "port does not exist"

However a USB-->Serial adapter with Proific 2303 chipset does not give this error so does not seem to be affecting all Win10 COM ports.

i have this error too but doesn't know how to solve it. the error "port does not exist" in the udf have the error code of -16 which is "port not found" which confused me because _CommListPorts show me the same port.:blink:

Sorry to necro an old thread,

Was anyone able to figure out this issue?

On one of my machines the Arduino is linked to Com3, Com3 shows in the list of available ports using _CommlistPorts()

but it throws an error -16 - ERROR=-16 $sportSetError=port does not exist

Any assistance would be appreciated..

Cheers

Thanks AutoBert,

For anyone else searching for a solution, I found that I am having some success using the kernel32.dll method from the thread

      So I have no example code currently because I'm not sure where to even start.
      We're using the parental controls on the computer and the kids each have their own user profiles with limited time. The problem we're encountering is when their time runs out, or if they just hit Win+L and leave the computer, their games are still running in the background. I was hoping to write up a quick AutoIt script and throw it in a recurring scheduled task to just sign off any of the kid's profiles that's not currently active. I found some suggestions to use "query session" and then "logoff [user]" in the command line (which it seems I could easily automate with AutoIt) but that's only available on Win Pro and this system is running Home (and I even tried copying the query.exe from a Pro system but it errors out). Is there some AutoIt equivalent to the query and logoff functions or am I stuck?

      Hi,
      I started this project alone in May 2020 as project in my spare time at work, I'm working for a IT company that started opening their services to residential customers few months ago and now my position in the company kinda drifted in the doom and gloom world of repetitive tasks like: Reinstallation of Windows 10.
      The procedure is very repetitive and I started feeling like being a robot which is the main reason I started this project.
       
      ==============================FAQ==================================
      1. Q: Do you want this project to be accomplished with the usage of AutoIT ONLY or 3rd party tools / Scripts (BATCH / POWERSHELL / VB) ? A: No, if I cannot find a way using AutoIT to accomplish a task I will move to my Plan B which consist of automating an 3rd party tool to accomplish the affected task until a solution is found. 2. Q: What do I get from helping/collaborating in this project? A: I will personally take the responsability to mention you in the credits of this project. 3. Q: If I have more questions, can I ask? A: Certainly! feel free to ask any questions related to this project! 4. Q: What is the main goal of this project? A: Automating Windows 10 configuration without user interaction needed (as much as possible) ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
      Current progression of the project (more will be added in future)

                 *** To Do ***
       - Read informations needed for tasks like: OEM, ComputerName, NAS user/password etc... from a file
       - ListView for Windows Updates
       - Probably more

      Hi all,
      I'm developing a tool for exploratively testing another software. For that I wanna cover all the GUI functionality from that software and verify everything works as intended. But now I've a problem which I couldnt solve so far.
      One thing that software I'm testing does, is to load up either a single picture or a series of pictures. Depending on how much pictures got loaded, further actions will be proceeded...
      This loaded pictures are schon within a ToolbarWindow and they're clickable. What I need to know is, how much pictures are in this ToolbarWindow...
      Can anybody provide me a tip on how to achive this?
      Would be amazing!!
      BR,
      Mic
