Hi,
I am developing a project in VC++ 2010 MFC. I need Serial Port
Communication Control like MSCOMM32.ocx of VC++ 6.0.
For MFC based application which control can I use?
I tried to register MSCOMM32.ocx ,but it fails to register
as I am using Windows 7.0
Posted

Such an old OCX control should not be used anymore.

You may use the Windows API Communication Functions[^] to implement serial communication yourself.

Because serial communication is often not a simple task, have also a look on articles and classes providing a simpler interface. Use the Search function here at CodeProject to find one that matches your requirements: mfc c++ serial port[^].

Even if you did not find what you want, the sources may be helpful to understand serial communication.

Out of my experience I full agree with you, that serial communication is often not a simple task. It can become very tricky!
