Renaming virtual serial ports

Electronic Team Electronic Team

By default, VSPD names created virtual serial ports as follows: Electronic Team Virtual Serial Port (COM 3). To know the exact port name look in Device Manager.

We are glad to offer you the possibility to change virtual serial ports names, shown in Device Manager, created by VSPD. Below we give you the command line for renaming Electronic Team Virtual Serial Ports into Electronic Team Virtual Serial Ports to let you see the procedure and learn how to do it easily. So, you can test the ports renaming feature using the following command line:

vspdxp_install.exe /c "FE50Eltima Software Virtual Serial Port"

Note: The code (4 symbols) uniquely corresponds to the custom name (in our example to “Electronic Team Virtual Serial Port”). If you execute this command with any other four digits or name, the ports name will be set to default (Electronic Team Virtual Serial Port).

If you would like to have the ports renamed, start with sending us the name you want your ports to have, we then generate the code which is bound to this name and send it back to you. We assume that SDK users will be especially interested in this option that costs USD 300 and can be ordered here. Upon placing the order, please send us an email with your order reference number and specify the desired ports name.
