Do the COM ports that you wish to remove appear in Device Manager as Hidden Devices? Please refer to the KB article below (keeping in mind that this KB article is not Edgeport-specific).

KB article works, BUT when I reconnect an earlier used device the it got the same port numbers as before I uninstalld the devices. I want the devices to use lowest not connected com-port number when they was installed again. Now I have to re-assign all 20-99 ports from 20-100 to 4-84 because I first tried a new device just to check functionality and after that connected the working solution.
