Selected Serial Port is Already in Use

Version: ALL
Operating System(s): ALL


When trying to run the software, the following error message is reported:

"The selected serial port is already in use!"


This means that the Comm Port that the Digital Wrench has been configured to use is no longer available. This situation can occur when other applications which utilize serial communications ports are installed after the Digital Wrench has been installed.


Make sure there are no other applications running which are using the same communications port as the Digital Wrench.

Refer to the manual for troubleshooting information regarding these error messages.
