For a project my dad has enlisted me in, I am to be able to communicate with a Vitamin Scanner from a computer. To illustrate, he opened 'Hyper Terminal' (should come with most Windows computers). He set up a communication using the program, and told me the baudrate, stop bits, parity, etc.
So I set about making this program. I decided to use C++. After researching for like a week or so, I stumbled upon some code that by all means, should work. I have attached the code in a file attachment, along with a few header files that are important.
I am using Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition. I use Windows XP. When I try to compile, it says it can't find the header file "stdafx.h". Does anybody know where I can download it, and its associated files? Or, if there is no way to download it, does anybody know of a better way for Serial Communication in windows?
