Delete a Serial Interface

Before you physically remove a serial interface from your Windows system, follow these steps to remove the hardware information:

  1. Launch MAX.
  2. Expand the Devices and Interfaces directory by clicking the + next to the folder.
  3. Right-click on your serial interface and select Delete from the drop-down menu that appears.
  4. When prompted, click the Yes button to confirm the removal of your interface.
  5. MAX automatically updates the list of installed serial interfaces. You can also select View┬╗Refresh to update the list.

On LabVIEW RT, it is not necessary to programmatically delete hardware from the system. Simply power down your RT controller and remove the hardware. When you power on your RT controller again, the ports are automatically removed from the system. You may need to refresh MAX to see the changes.
