I need to install an actuators to LABVIEW base test system because the old actuators are defective. We cannot purchase the old actuators because they are obsolete. The old actuators communicated using the COM ports 1 and 8. The COM port are hard coded in the LABVIEW program. The new actuators communicate via a USB interface. But COM ports 1 & 8 not available. The systems states that they are "in use".
The LABVIEW based test systems is running on a Window 7 machine. Is there a way to point the new actuator USB interfaces to COM port 1 and 8?
