I've got this older program, I believe it runs on DOS. It's a driving school simulation CD. When I try to run it I get this message;

The system cannot open COM3 port requested by the application.

I can choose close or ignore but no matter which one I choose the program closes itself.

I'm running W2K but tried it on a different computer with the same OS and I got a message saying it couldn't open COM1.

Unfortunately I don't have any other OS to try it on but a friend took it home that has the same OS and it opened fine after clicking ignore.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.
