"Access is denied"
« on: December 14, 2014, »
When I load the Lynx Address Utility program and try to change the comport I get an "Access is denied" error. Anyone know how to fix the error?

Two possibilities...


Something is already using the com port... maybe xlights, lsp, or something else.


You might need to run the tool as administrator...  right click on the tool and choose "Run as administrator..."

Thanks Steve,

I was running xlights. Closed xlights and the error went away.
