Troi Serial Plug-in 9.0

Compatibility

FileMaker Pro 16

Considerations

This script step will close all ports first. Then the plug-in looks again for available ports.

You can use this script step when new or different serial ports are added dynamically, for example if you plug-in a USB To Serial adapter.
