Strange NT Error Message

Follow up on the recently reported NT error message.

A follow-up on the weird NT error message reported in the WAW 2.06:

“The control registers for COM2 overlaps with the COM2 control registers.”

followed two lines later by

“While validating that COM2 was really a serial port, the contents of the divisor latch register was identical to the interrupt enable and the receive registers. The device is assumed not to be a serial port and will be deleted.”

Carroll Thomson (who also experienced this error message) wrote that reinstalling the latest WinNT service pack (whatever SP had been installed most recently) fixed this problem for him.  Thanks!
