Thank you for an excellent product.
I have a server that collects data from several devices over the network. Devices have RS-232 interface, so I use Prolific USB-to-RS232, and connect devices to Raspberries running Virtualhere servers (licensed). I have total of 3 Raspberries with 6 devices, and growing.
On the Windows server I have VirtualHere client. It worked almost perfectly for a year with VirtualHere client 2.2.7. Running it as Windows service. After each restart all devices reconnected and even got the same COM port numbers, which is important for me (my monitoring software needs to know which is which).
Now I had to move to another Windows server and installed client 2.4.1. And it did not work the way I expected!
All devices connected both in manual mode and from Windows service. However, after every restart COM port numbers were assigned differently. Forcing them in Device manager did not help as apparently Windows thought these were different devices every time.
When using "-t" mode I saw that the device numbers (the ones in parentheses) also changed after reboot. Perhaps this was the reason.
Do you think it's the issue with the newest version? Or could it be a permission problem (Virtualhere trying to save something and unable?) Can I enable some logging to investigate further?
Thanks a lot
