I am a rooky in COM control. I'd done a few VB programs now, but I'd never seem to be able to figure out how things work sometime. I found some discussion regarding MSCOMM and controling the COM port, which is what I am trying to do. I found and downloaded the MSComm.ocx file package, but don't know how to add/install it in the tool lib. Would someone please help. I am using the VB Studio Express.
