I am using Visual Studio C++ Express Edition 2008.
I need to connect to a external board via a serial port.
I was wondering if it is possible to do so on the Express Edition?
If it is any help on how to do it would be appreciated.

Use the serial port class.

See CreateFile()[^] and Communication Functions[^] in the MDSN. All functions are Windows API functions that can be used with the Express editions.

Take a look at the wide articles section related to Hardware programming here in CP:[^]

Look for "Serial" there and you'll get plenty of articles that will fit your needs, even you will be able to download the samples and test it by yourself.

Good luck!
