For most devices, the Ports device setup class and the Serial function driver provide the functionality required to operate serial ports and COM ports. To install serial ports and COM ports using these system-supplied components, do the following:
Provide an INF file that specifies the Ports device setup class and the Serial function driver as the service for the port.
To configure a serial port as COM port, comply with the requirements that are defined in Configuration of COM Ports.
One window will be used for the USB Serial port connection, and one window will be used for the virtual serial port. In our image below, COM20 was the virtual COM port we had set up, and COM6 is connected directly to our device via a serial port (in this case converted from the USB port- Universal Serial Bus).
For more information about installing serial ports and COM ports using the Ports device setup class and the Serial function driver, see the following topics:

If you do a custom installation of a COM port, you must comply with the COM port requirements that are defined in Configuration of COM Ports.
