Openning COM Port Locks VB Project on First Go

Post by _Quidam » Sat, 15 Nov 2003 02:01:58


I'm working on a project that communicates with an RFID Tag reader via
the COM port. The project is designed in VB6 and I'm using the MS
Comm control for communications.

Problem is, when I open the port on any machine other than the one I'm
developing on, the app locks up. If I force it to close, then start
it up again, everything works fine.

Any suggestions on what I might be doing wrong? Any suggestions for a
different com control I could use? Any more data I could provide to
aid in diagnostics?

mahalo!
