How Do I Determine The Serial Port In Use?
Vista appears to have done away with the Ports applet in Control Panel.
When using a USB to serial adapter, how do I determine the actual serial
port number? Every time I plug it in I get a different serial port number,
so I need to be able to rediscover the serial port taken on an ongoing
basis.

Sorry, I see that Device Manager still lists ports. My bad.
