Re: serial ports not visible with 1.7 under Vista
Ooops (I got the doubt Dave were joking :-))
Errno reports just "no such file or directory".
Same if you try something like "echo ATH > /dev/ttyS5"
Probably some 1.7 initialization is not done in the same way as in 1.5.25.
It is a sad situation for me:
with 1.5.25 waveinopen crashes (but it works in 1.7)
with 1.7 serial ports are missing (but present in 1.5.25)
Any help very appreciated
