COM Setting in laptop(Dell D630) for Star Diagnosis
You know, Star diagnostic multiplexer, no matter c3 or c4, requires a laptop with a very specific set of COM ports you must use for it to work. For example you need DAS to be looking at COMx within the VM session, then VMware needs to redirect that to COMx which is a 'physical' serial port on your machine. And here I would like to show you how to do COM setting in your laptop for star diagnostics
Right click “My Computer” on Desktop to select “Properties”.
Go to Hardware-> Device Manager.
Select Ports (COM & LPT)-> PCI_COM(COM2), and right click PCI_COM(COM2) for Properties.
Go to Port Settings.
Go to Advanced...
Select “COM2” as COM Port Number in Advanced Setting for COM2.
Here, as a professional repairman, a laptop Dell D630 for your Star diagnosis would be a good choice for you; I mean, to buy star mux with Dell D630 from seller, pre-install software and all setting you need-mb-- more convenient..
