Hi,

Yes, you may use it. However, technically, it is licensed only for use if
you also have Visual Studio 6.0 installed. To avoid the license issue, you
can download NETComm.ocx from my homepage, which wraps MSComm32.ocx, and is
free, with no license restrictions. You also can refer to the other posts
for alternate solutions.

BTW, I have native .NET code examples (using P/Invoke) in my book, along
with solutions that use add-ons that range from MSComm32 to NETComm and
XMCommCRC to commercial communications add ons. See below. These examples
and text may help you with other questions that come up. Feel free to ask
here, too.
