Default MSComm with USB-serial adapter?


Hello,

I'm developing an application in VB 6.0 where I use MSComm to communicate with a GSM PCMCIA Card (open serial port, send AT commands, and read response). Now I have to work with a USB GSM modem, I know that MSComm controls don't work with USB port.... But if the USB device (GSM modem) simulate a virtual serial port could I use MSComm?
Other solution could be to use a serial-USB adapter, where the adapter conect to a PC's serial port?

Best Regards,

Andrés

If you can simulate virtual serial port with your USB to serial hardware, then you can work with it as with any other serial port, so you can use MSComm.
