Hi all. I bought a laptop this summer. And when I open LOR I get an error saying I can not control lights because of an error.

Open of serial port has failed.
Error(8002) Open of serial port has failed.
Error(8002) Com port error
While:Open COM1 params baud=57600 parity=n data=8 stop=1 xon=off odsr=off dtr=off rts=off idsr=off


Can anyone help me out with this? I would like to use this to run the show this year.

Thanks for and help received.

steve that is normal. you dont have the controler hooked up. so its just letting you know that. when you connect your controler the message will go away.;)

Thanks. Guess thats a pretty good dork move on my part. I'll hook it up and try that out. As you can tell I don't know to much about computers. HAHA

Thanks again.

It would be helpful if the error message was not so darn obscure.

I am resurecting this thread since this just happened to me tonight on a laptop and I found this thread (and a couple of others) by searching the error.

Since I am a computer techie as opposed to electrician, just curious why I get this error on a laptop but not on the desktop with identical installation. I haven't even finished putting together the controllers yet so it can't be that I have connected a controller to the desktop but not the laptop.

Has anybody found any conflicts with USB drivers?
