    I am using the Comm Control to dial the modem. How would I go about allowing the user to select the modem they wish to use from a combo box that listed all the installed modems, and then gather information on the selected modem, like Comm Port, Baud Rate, Parity, Data bit and Stop bit.

    Thanks

    Ok everyone I managed to get a list of modems from the registry, except the registry does not hold on which Comm Port the modem is (?!?!?)

    So...can anyone suggest a method of looping through each comm port on the system to see if it is the modem that the user has selected in my combo box

    (Yes - you can have more than 1 modem on a computer - I have 9!!)

    Thanks

    Unhappy VB ENumerated Modem List

    Can anyone expand on this thread to show how to get the list of installed modems on a Win2k box/laptop dynamically?

    I'd like to use something (An API call) in my Visual Basic code as opposed to hard coding and reading registry keys.

    example:
    On a laptop (w2k) with a built in modem, the registry entry is different as opposed to where a pcmcia modem registry is located.
    Dont want to hardcode!

    Thanks!
