vrf VEE, PDA's etc

Question asked by VRFuser on Mar 11, 2006
Hi - Sorry to ask yet more questions !!!
 
I have a product I am developing which I use a VEE program to interrogate the unit and display recorded parameters on AlphaNumeric displays. The product has either a PIC16F877 micro or 16F627 and transmits data to either an RS232 port on the PC or USB (using Prolific serial /USB converter).
 
I am using VEE 5.01. Although the RunTime version is very small size and the VEE RunTime program is easy to install by a customer, the setting up of the PC com port is a real pain because the Agilent IO libraries have to be installed and configured, which is beyond the capability of some of my customers. Any ideas how I can communicate with COM1 on the PC without having to use the Agilent I/O libraries, without infringing  on licencing agreement problems.
 
I would also like to have an application above on a PDA but I know this is not possible with VEE. There is an NI LabView APP to do this, I believe but it looks very expensive, just to buy the Software package. Anyone out there doing a similar thing and if so what do you use to write the code?
