Older applications that use serial communication often use legacy hardware addresses that do not work with PCI, PCIe, or USB to Serial products. We recommend contacting the software provider/support team to check if this is the case.
Use a USB to Serial product that features COM Port Retention. These products will store settings that are unique to the connected device in non-volatile memory, allowing you to retain the desired settings regardless of the USB Port to which the adapter is connected.
