going from Win32_SerialPort to port index


I am able to get a list of ports using the System.Management classes.
Win32_SerialPort has data members for port name, baud rate, etc, etc...
but no entry for port index number.

I need to map Win32_SerialPort's to indicies to set
AxMSCommLib.AxMSComm.CommPort for read/write port access. How can I get
a port number given a Win32_SerialPort? One way I can think of is to
parse the deviceid string for trailing numerals and use that as the
port number. But is "COM1" always guaranteed to be port 1 for
AxMSCommLib.AxMSComm.CommPort purposes?
