Why do I get the message “Capture Button Serial Port Unavailable”?

“Capture button serial port unavailable; keyboard capture will be used.”

This common error message can appear when starting your FinishLynx software. If you get this message and you’re using Auto Capture  but not the Capture Button, then no further action is required. You can proceed to running your meet as planned.
