    Xport Disappearing ports problem.

    When I installed xport I didnít realize it auto started on it own so I put a copy of it in the startup folder. I realized my mistake after a little reading and its working great now. But now the ports I started out with (ports 4&5) no longer show up in the output port select pull down. I tried uninstalling Xport and deleting the Xport registry entry then reinstalled Xport. But still no option for port 4 or 5. Where does xport store this info?

    Thanks
    Mike

    Just output to different port numbers and reconfigure your devices to use these new ports...
    Possibly something you instaled took those ports, i.e. my BT dongle ALWAYS takes COM3 and 4...

    This happened twice so I’m missing 4 ports. Each time it happened only the ports that xport was using disappeared that’s why I believe it’s xport. Port 2 is the only one left below 10 and I’m using that with IG because it won’t remember any ports higher than 9.
    It’s working great now but it would be nice to get the lower ports back.

    XPort doesn't save the information anywhere, but it does allocate them in the port arbiter. Anything can go wrong though, and it fails once and leaves those allocated. Hitting the Scan button would fix it. I actually changed all that a week ago so that it doesn't rely on the info but still keeps it up to date. I replaced 1.28 with it on my site and didn't bump the version number.
