First, sorry, I don't know much software, so please excuse my posting, if this is in the wrong spot. I have a consultant doing a meter program using MS Visual C++ 2010, and he is having trouble fixing a bug, so I thought I would see if anybody has a suggestion.
The application connects to a com port (115200, no handshaking), and displays an angle. The data can come quite fast at times. He occasionally misses the last sets of values (the last value sent is the most important one). He claims it is something to do with Windows.
When I use Hyperterm, it never fails, so I seem to think it shouldn't be a problem.
