I went to update the firmware on ARC today. When I opened up the update firmware window the com port had changed to COM 31. It should be COM 3. I can highlight it in the drop down but can"t change it. How do you change the COM port in the firmware update window?????? Guess I 've forgotten how to do it.
Upgrade to ARC Pro

There is a bug that i've mentioned to microsoft a few times now - but it hasn't been resolved. On occasion, your computer will show a port (ie COM31), but it's actually COM3. In fact, it won't even connect on 31, but will still connect on COM3. The only resolution is to delete the port, reboot, and re-add.
I'm not sure why it happens. There are plenty of bluetooth COM users on the internet who complain about the issue - just no resolution from Microsoft
@Robotz thanks for the welcome back. I try to spend as much time on the forum as i can. Most of the questions i answer are always in the tutorial anyway So i'm normally just pointing people to the tutorials haha
sadly, the more time i spend on here, the slower ARC evolves. it's good to see the community pick up support questions for new users. that takes the load off me so i can continue writing code and adding new features to ARC
and rename or add sections like beginners, where to buy that sort of thing
@ DJ: I'm hoping that the long time user/builders return to posting on the forum and sharing information. I'm sure we all agree that the more time you have to write code and add features is a very good thing indeed!
