Default .Net problem with emulated USb to Serial com port

Hi,
I have a USB GPS that emulate a comport with
Prolific USB-to-serial com port drivers.

It works with oteher programs but not in
Visual Studio.NET 2005.

VS.NET does not recognise the emulated com-port, com5 (the com5 is Bold not valid in VS).

.NET seems to not work with this emulated ports like this,
any workarounds? or any Other drivers I can use?
Must be more than me that came across this problem?

I am using the standard .NET 2.0 Serialport control to communicate with a com port, works fine with regular comports or bluetooth emulated ports.

Thanks//Martin
