Victron Connect Windows playing havoc with other devices

The Victron Connect program is playing havoc with other COM port devices. For some reason, the program insists on opening every COM port at startup and then attempting to write to it. Not only that it will play with modem control signals. That causes radios I have that are connected on these ports to go into transmit. It causes other monitors to loose their data.

This is all verified using an Serial port monitor by Eltima. It shows me what programs open what ports, what commands are sent, what data is read and written.

How do I get this program to not open every com port and attempt to write to it? This is making my system unusable.

I got the same issue over here, once VictronConnect scanned the ports they are not available anymore to other software. It should be possible for VictronConnect to close unused ports after its scan, right. Could the programmers please fix that problem ! Pls ;)

My Mk3 goes haywire and simulates a mouse speeding around the desktop.

I unplug it when not in use.
