After updating to Windows 98 second edition from windows 95,
the serial listener I am using (based on the commapi example)
can no longer find the serial port. I am getting NoSuchPortException error.
I still have the win32com.dll in the jdk1.3 bin directory, and comm.jar are in jdk1.3 lib.
I just can't figure out what went wrong.
Can anyone help?
thank you in advance.

Can you see the serial port in the Control panel/system?
I agree. Here's the link:
