I don't think so. I think if you try to open the COM port and it fails to open then you have an issue. I don't recall if you can actually talk to the car. Unlikely. Opening the COM port tests all your hardware up tot the 16 pin connector.
Since the error message you have is telling you that it has found and identified a module, I think your HW and SW is working, but you are trying to access an ECU that is not the correct type.
