Default changing com ports for a file in cmd

We need to change the com port which is defaulted to com 1, we need to change the com port to default to com 6. Can anyone tell us the steps to do this. We go to start, run, cmd and put in the path for the file and can't figure out how to get further. Thanks for you help.

Default Re: changing com ports for a file in cmd

1. first off disable com1 in the bios
2. In run you choose "RegEDIT" not cmd.
3. after that in reg go to the file:
My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and find the file your trying to edit.
4. select and edit the PortName to change com1 to com6 and select and then Delete ForceConfig
5. in
My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\devicemap\ser ialcomm
make sure to have string one com1 and com6 added.

I think this should help.
