vrf Reading RS-232 serial port from VEE

Question asked by VRFuser on Jan 30, 2006
Hello Rich
Welcome as well.
Yes, what Andy has suggested were to be my thoughts as well. It seems that is a familiar method of installing software that needs a serial port. For the Palm Pilot I use I've told its software to be only running with the desktop for it is running.
