Just getting started on the Arduino platform. I got things going fine with the tutorial and quickly got my application code written and tested. I disconnected the first UNO board I was using to develop code on and connected a second identical board (ie also an UNO). I came to the conclusion that I needed to reinstall the driver and let Windows XP recognize this board as a different COM port number (the first was installed as COM9 the second as COM10).
Is there a more elegant solution available here? Is there any way to just have any Uno (or in fact any Arduino) recognized as COM9 without reinstalling drivers?
Is this behavior limited to XP?
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
Host OS is Windows XP
Dev Tools Version is Arduino 0022
All the boards I’m using are Arduino Uno.
