N1MM+ is under continuous development and has a very active dev team. However I will mention it.

Talk to the N1MML logger program developer. He has not selected the most reliable way to enumerate serial ports. And just off hand I do not see a duplication in that list. It's not the virtual serial port tool's problem if there really is no duplication present. If there is one it is removable once you know which one it is. His error message will have to be more specific. If he's not developing the program anymore it's time to junk it.

Re: Com port pickle

Conrad, PA5Y
 

All those ports are used, I have a lot of different configurations. However I will remove everything and start again and perhaps have some kind of structure. For instance, all of the S3 virtual ports are 55-57. I should add that despite N1MM+’s protestations everything works in all other applications.

Without looking too hard I see a duplicate COM1 which is most odd as this is usually the legacy port on the motherboard.

 

I would correctly deinstall all virtual serial port software, check available ports with N1MM, then slowly add them back using only one program, my favourite is com0com. Alternatively check all the software and look at the definitions.

 

There's at least one program which needs some TLC so that you don't cause this sort of situation.

 

Try this display in Console, good 'cos it shows the manufacturer (written correctly):

 

 

Good luck!

I have always used VSP Manager. Has worked flawlessly for me. Just be aware needs to run in "compatibility mode" but it's fine. See SImon's info:

Re: Com port pickle

I used "Device Remover" to get rid of some of the COM ports in the huge collection I ended up with.

It has a GUI but it is not particularly friendly and you need to be very careful what you do with it.

Google found me an article about getting rid of hidden com ports.

I have a lot of COM ports in use, and I just added the FDM-DUO and I need to use OMNIRIG for WSJT-X etc. This means that I must allocate any real physical comports to numbers less than 20. Despite my best-efforts using Device manager and com-0-com and VPSE I seem to have a clash that stops N1MM+ from opening correctly.  I need to re-do everything and document what I have done this time.

 

Is there an application out there that provides a nice  human friendly GUI that shows all com ports virtual or physical?

Hi.
It saddens me to hear that support of Dual Channel SDR's is way down the line.
There has been former threads here discussing this subject over time. I see it is in the "Future" list here:  https://www.sdr-radio.com/Future
I also have a AFE822x SDR-Net (Dual Channel), so there are a few around.
I would guess that there is a larger audience for Dual Channel SDR's than for future multi channel SDR's.

There are many interesting and nice features that could be realized with one of those Dual Channel SDR's.
I made a short write-up on Beam and Notch Steering using a Dual Channel SDR.
I enclose it as an PDF-file (413 kB). I hope it would not be dropped due to limited disk quota :-)
