Greetings, I am practicing developing software that can communicate with hardware via an RS232 connection. I am using new PC hardware and I don't have any serial ports, nor do I have any actual devices with me that use serial communication. Does anyone have any ideas or recommendations for software that can run on Windows, preferably on Windows 7 that can emulate a COM port device with basic text IO? It would be nice if I could use this software for free so freeware/open source software is best. Thank you.

I want to write a program interrupts when the receive buffer for the serial port has received some data. I have done a little a bit of research and I believe C# word for interrupt is delegate. Apologies if I'm barking up the wrong tree but I want to know if there is method other than polling the read buffer of the serial port. I have used interrupts before but only in C on a PIC. Basically is it possible in C#? Cheers

hi i need to make an excel macro that handles serial communication and takes data from two lab balances. I've looked around and found that i can use xmcommcrc or winwedge (others too but these i'm experimenting with). The result should be that data would be recorded live into an excel sheet where it can be further processed. I would prefer xmcomm, because then there is no other program running (if anyone can give some reasons why i shouldn't use this...). I have managed to go as far as establishing a connection and reading one value, but i need it …

Hi Everybody, FYI (In order to get a feeling with the time it takes to send command strings to signal generators via a GPIB bus, I want to send a voltage level high pulse to an oscilloscope. Ones the RF signal arrives via a detector diode, The pulse and the video signal are triggered and I can compare the timing.) I've got a twofold problem with the code I've been trying to write: 1. I want the pulse (On the serial Com1 port) coming on just before I send the command string to the signal generator (HPIB). The error I …
