I'm having trouble with my Minipov3

I put it together and turned it on. I get the pre-progarm of the LEDs coming on in a row one at the time.

I'm using Windows XP home and only have one com port, com1

Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

It appears to be having trouble opening COM1. Assuming that the port is actually there, It could be because it is in use or that some program didn't close it properly. Try closing anything that might have it open and try again.

It worked!!! Thank you

I tried everything I could think of, went and got a new Zener diode from RS, spent hours reading these forums only to find it something as simple as that. When all else fails ask for help.
I need this thing to work!
