How can I change COM port settings after CitectSCADA has been run for some other application? 

You can use the Microsoft MODE tool available with Windows XP.

If you enter MODE /? from a command prompt it will show the available settings:

    Serial port: MODE COMm[:] [BAUD=b] [PARITY=p] [DATA=d] [STOP=s]
    [to=on|off] [xon=on|off] [odsr=on|off]
    [octs=on|off] [dtr=on|off|hs]
    [rts=on|off|hs|tg] [idsr=on|off]

    Device Status: MODE [device] [/STATUS]
    Redirect printing: MODE LPTn[:]=COMm[:]
    Select code page: MODE CON[:] CP SELECT=yyy
    Code page status: MODE CON[:] CP [/STATUS]
    Display mode: MODE CON[:] [COLS=c] [LINES=n]
    Typematic rate: MODE CON[:] [RATE=r DELAY=d]
