I am unfamiliar with UDEV. How did you use it?  I went  over the man page but not sure where to start.
I changed the permissions to 0666 and ran Csmain.  It didn’t like that, I got a failure message.

I switched back to 0644 and used the above code. It doesn’t matter what COM* I use I can get Csmain up and running and go to add a link and it can’t open the port like it’s busy.  I get the same message in VirtualBox when I forget to shutdown Rslinx for AB PLC’s. 
Hope this is useful.
