I was hoping to find out how to stop windows 2008 server R2 64 bit from detecting a serial mouse on the com port. i know the boot.ini version with /noserialmouse....etc for earlier versions also i have edited the registry/services/sermouse start parameter (change from 4 to 3) to no avail. windows 2008 server has BCDedit to manage the boot options but i have not seen a reference anywhere to stop the detection of a serial mouse needless to say this server is specific to our PABX and i DO NOT HAVE a serial mouse on that port but i do have a data stream from the PABX. there is some data but it is being garbled and the application will not work.
I did manage to get it working for a few days by uninstalling the serial mouse in Dev manager, disabling and enabling the com port, but after a reboot the problem came back and now no matter what i do it will not work. i am using tools like hyperterminal and putty to view the data stream on the server and no luck. however if i connect my laptop (an XP machine) using hyperterminal the data stream is valid. assistance is greatly appreciated.
