MaxSea on a Netbook - Help ?

Hi firstly I would like to say hi to everyone.

I do however have a problem which i am hoping somebody can help or advise

I have a Samsung netbook and i have just installed Maxsea.

I have connected up a USB GPS tht meets the requirments (NMEA 183). The problem is i have a message appear when i boot Maxsea saying ERROR! 'Cant open serial port COM 3'

I have checked the device manager and configured the port to COM 3 but i still recieve the same message?

I appreciate any help or advice.

Many thanks
