COM Port Not Being Saved

Priority:5 - MediumMileStone:(None)
Type:BugsSeverity:5 - Medium
Component:Tera TermStatus:Open


When I set the various parameters of a connection (Port, Baud rate, Data, Parity, Stop, Flow Control, Xmit and Rcv delay) I can save the setup and restore it next time I launch TT. All the other parameters are restored except Port. That setting always reverts to COM1.

What is the value of ComPort in TERATERM.INI after saving?

Not reproduced. What is the value of ComPort in TERATERM.INI after saving?

If I save to TERATERM.INI, the ComPort saves correctly to TERATERM.INI and TT will have the changed COM port when I restart it.

The problem is when I try to save and restore using a different file name. The INI file I save to shows the ComPort I changed to but when I restore my modified INI, the port remains at 1.


Change COM port to 2, Data to 7-bit then:


Setup Save Setup... type in any file name other than TERATERM (let's use TEST.INI)

Close TeraTerm Open TeraTerm Click

Setup Restore setup... type in TEST.INI

Data is restored to 7 bit but COM port remains at 1.

Restore setup does not change the current connection.

To change the default COM port, use the /F= option when launching Tera Term.

ttermpro.exe /F=TEST.INI
