See more: C# Win7 serialport

I'm using Windows 7 with SP1 installed and MS Visual Studio 2010 Prof.

I just found a bug if I use this code :

string[] ports = SerialPort.GetPortNames();

in .NET 2.0, results are : COM5i, COM6i, ...
in .NET 3.5, results are : COM5i, COM6i, ...
in .NET 4.0, results are : COM5, COM6, ...

in Windows XP SP3, the results are always : COM5, COM6, ...

are there bugs in windows 7 SP1 ?
