Why do you need ComTestSerial?
When you cannot get communications between your serial device and your application, you typically need to perform the following troubleshooting steps. These steps are general troubleshooting guidelines. Our experience has shown us that you can save hours and even days worth of troubleshooting if you first get an understanding of the operation of your serial device using a test program such as ComTestSerial.
Connect your serial device to a serial communications test program such as ComTestSerial.
Press the send button on your serial device to send information to ComTestSerial or send a command from ComTestSerial to your serial device.
Find the manual for your serial device to determine what the baud rate and communications parameters should be (yes, I know we all hate to read the manual!).
If you have multiple serial ports on your PC, change the serial port within ComTestSerial to determine which serial port your device is connected to.
