CoCo locks up checking for interfaces.

Post by Ian »

Fix for potential problem with CoCo locking up whilst launching whilst checking for interfaces.

If you have a Bluetooth or other Comms device that is using a number of COM ports (e.g. Bluetooh using Ports 3-22 etc.) then CoCo may be unable to check those COM ports and may jam.
What you basically need to do is get CoCo to not check the COM portsthat the Bluetooth or other device is tying up.

Assuming you have the Box on COM 1 or 2 as is generally the case you can fix the problem as detailed below.

To fix it first turn off or unplug the Bluetooth or other device that is jamming CoCo.

Open CoCo and go to the Administrative Options screen (you will need the password). Go to the COM tab and set Max COM port check to 2. IF you know the device to be on a different port to 1 or 2 you may need to set it to that number as Max port.

You can then turn the Bluetoth or wahtever back on and check that CoCo is now working. Ifit isn't contact support at for further advice.
