    Unable to open the "COM2" serial port Problem.

    DreamWorkss Lurker

      Hello guys,

       

      I'm having trouble connecting to COM2 port in Vmware. I Have a Windows 10 PC with VMware Player 6.0.0 build-1295980. I'm trying to connect a device on Windows XP virtual machine through RS232 to usb cable. The COM2 ports are set in the device settings on the Windows XP Virtual Machine and on my Windows 10 PC too. When i start the virtual machine it shows error:

       

       

      And the virtual device serial0 starts disconnected. When i try to connect it it show this error:

       

       

      Please help me to connect it

       

      In my .vmx file the settings are like this:
