N1MM is only capable of using the com ports 1-8. Often there are ports
assigned which no longer have devices connected to them. These are
called "phantom ports". These can be discovered and removed. It is then
possible to move ports around to accommodate the program.
Here is a process to find those ports and allow you to move the ports
you need into the com1-com8 range.
Here is how to have Device Manager show any "phantom" ports...
> 1. Click Start
> 2. Click Run
> 3. Type cmd.exe in the textbox and click OK
> 4. Type set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1 and hit ENTER
> 5. Type cd\windows\system32 and hit ENTER
> 6. Type start devmgmt.msc and hit ENTER
> 7. When the device manager opens, click the View menu
> 8. Click Show Hidden Devices
> 9. Click on the + sign next to the Ports to see the full list of Com
ports being used.
> 10. Highlight the port you wish to delete and then press delete.
> Accept when asked to do so and continue with any more that you wish
