xp communication problem w/software to plotter?

i am trying to switch my software to my pc with xp, but i am have trouble getting flexi 7.2 to communicate with my plotter, all the settings are the same that i had in my windows 98 pc, im sure there is a setting that need to be changed. my plotter is a anagraph 101e, it runs into the pc throuh a com 1 port. any ideas on what i need to do to fix this? thanks.
Nope the firewall is off, when its a file is sent it says "cannot open port" its in com1, have tried other port options, cant figure it out, anyone else got any ideas?

When that report comes,
Usually something else is using that port. Mouse, modem, camera, something is conflicting. GOto port 2 an dtry that one.
