I plugged in a USB mouse into my Vista machine and it's working fine. Is this device assigned a COM port number? If so, how do I determine it?
In Device Manager, under Ports, everything listed there is either prefixed with a "Bluetooth Serial Port (COMxx)" or "BT Port (COMxx)". Nothing there to suggest the com port of the mouse. I see the mouse under "Mice and other pointing devices", but looking at the properties of the mouse does not reveal the com port number.
I'm curious because I'm interested in using a programming library I found that allows me to read and send messages to a com port device.
