Use of MSCOMM32 in Visual C++ .net

P: n/a
I have a version of mscomm32.ocx on my machine which is dated 1997. I
assume
this is the version that came with my Visual Development suite 97.
I did not buy a Version 6 and went straight to .net, hence I do not have a
version 6.0 of MSCOMM32.OCX
I am trying to update a program that was written in C++ version 6 to be
supported in C++ .net.
Although I can add an activex control to a dialog box I cannot seem to be
able to add a class for handling my comms.
Does anyone know if Visual Studio.net comes with an updated, or version 6,
of MSCOMM32.
If not do you know how I can get a copy.
Finally does anyone know once I have the control how to include it into my
C++ code?

The best way is to write the functionality in C++, but why bother when
there are alternatives:

1) VS.NET does not come with a serial control (no MSComm)

2) Look here:

3) And here:

4) or here:
