COM Port in Win 10?

Post by langassve » Tue 1. Mar 2016, 17:17

I don’t use the PCAN-USB very often so I might not remember it correct but shouldn’t I see a COM port for the device in device manager? at least the software I intend to use prompts me for it…

I get the “PCAN-USB” under “CAN-Hardware” in the device manager but nothing under “Ports”, no warnings or exclamation marks.

I have installed the latest drivers from PEAK:S web page.

Win 10 / 64

Thanks in advance

the PCAN-USB module is an USB device with an own driver. It is not a com port device.

Which software do you like to use? Maybe you need to install the dlls for the PCAN-USB, to be able to use the device by your software.

The problem is solved, I just ignored the prompt and everything worked as it should, guess this is how it feels like to be stupid :)
The software is dedicated for diagnostics on a radio receiver for an industrial remote control.

Anyway thanks for your help!

Hi, I am having the same problem.
I would like to use a PEAK usb CAN module at a specific COM port but it doesn’t show up as one.
Is there any way to do this?

Like mentioned in this very thread, the PCAN-USB is a USB-interface and
will not show up as a COM-device.

PCAN-USB uses its own driver, which you can download using this link:


If you want to use a PCAN-USB in your own applicatiom, have a look at the PCANBasic API:

Best Regards
