We recently changed our development box, because SQL Server was not starting reliably.

On the new laptop, we are seeing in the triPOS service log file:

triPOS v5.12.0.25206 (01 Jun 2017)

2017-10-20 10:39:45,050 [9] triPOS ERROR -  SerialPinPadTransport.cs.ConnectSerialPort: Error opening serial port

The PC is a Lenovo laptop ruinning Windows 10.

The Unified drivers and the SDK are installed. The vx805 is plugged into a USB port on the laptop.

Device manager shows the pin pad on COM2 (see attached screen shots DeviceManagerComPort.png).

Our triPOS.config for the lane (triposconfigLaneConfiguration.png) is consistent with the port settings we see in device manager (DeviceManagerComPortSettings.png and DeviceManagerComPortSettingsAdvanced.png).


Any help will be appreciated.
