View Full Version : Cannot open COM1 while x10nets.exe running

June 25th, 2006, 02:35 PM

I've installed an X10 RF receiver (USB) that came with my Medion PC (this seems to be running X10nets.exe as a service) and it works just fine throughout the house.

But now I'm reworking the MobileSMS plugin for G4 and during testing one problem is bugging me, I can't open COM1 anymore !!!

I found out that it all has to do with the X10nets.exe, because when I kill this, then load the MobileSMS plugin (which opens COM1) -> all is fine.

If I then unload/load the Generic X10 Remotes plugin, X10nets.exe is restarted but doesn't seem to cause problems with the MobileSMS plugin.

What can be wrong ???
