    In WIN 98, i have a program that needs to look for a security key on COM 2.
    When i open the program, it says that it cannot find COM 2. How do i know if this enabled or not and how can i disable and enable different com ports?
    Tried hardware manager, but no luck.

    When you go into device manager, you'll see what com ports are installed.

    You can enable and disable the com ports through the BIOS.

    how many serial ports do you have on the computer? If there are only 1, then you probably don't have a COM2.
