Sometimes the following error appears:
Activation context generation failed for "C:\Program Files (x86)\STMicroelectronics\Software\Virtual COM Port Driver\dpinst_ia64.exe". Dependent Assembly Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls,language="*",processorArchitecture="ia64",publicKeyToken="6595b64144ccf1df",type="win32",version="22.214.171.124" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.
The software that is trying to use the COM port fails
The port 'COM6' does not exist.

This failure is a critical part of Navigation software and I need to find a solution to this issue. I would be grateful for any assistance.
