TOPIC: Babbletron 'opening portCOM8error:COM8 port in use

Babbletron 'opening portCOM8error:COM8 port in use 3 years 10 months ago #500

Hi when I am trying to connect to either GSTweak or Babbletron I get this same error. Both programs worked once and not again. I have re-uploaded pclink to the board and still no joy. I'm running these on windows 7, I also run it on ubuntu where my problem is that neither program will access the com ports at all, that's why I settled with windows. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Regards
Rob

Hi Rob. It sounds like another application (possible the Ardiuno IDE?) is running and holding onto the port. If you have not already tried already try logging out and logging back in - Windows may reveal what is gripping the port.
