vrf Releasing Serial Ports

Question asked by jfreriks on Jan 29, 2004
I would like to know if anyone has found a way to release a serial port in
Vee (6.01) once it has been communicated to.

What I want to do is:
In VEE
run test program
talk to unit via COM1
(Release COM1)
Launch DOS programming App that uses COM1
Exit DOS app and return control to VEE
talk to unit via COM1 again.


I have not found a method, and I have to exit VEE to run the programming
app.

(yes I can use a second serial port and a switch, but I want to know if I
can release the serial port)

Any help would be much appreciated, even it is to tell me that it is not
possible.

Cheers
