1 Problem

When a new D.Module2.C6657 is connected via USB to your PC, a new free COM port is automatically assigned by the installation wizard. If this default behavior is not suitable because an application needs to be controlled always by a fixed port, a user could follow Re-assign virtual COM port to manually change the COM port for a specific device or use the instructions below to permanently change this behavior for all D.Module2.C6657.

2 Solution

The automatic new COM port assignment is caused by a unique serial number programmed into the FTDI chips on all D.Module2.C6657 boards. With a specific registry switch all D.Module2.C6657 FTDI serial numbers can be excluded from the default automatic COM port assignment. Create a REG_BINARY value IgnoreHWSerNum04036015 set to 01 under


or use the following .reg script to add the key to your registry:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
