Re: serial ports not visible with 1.7 under Vista
Correction, my last post was ambiguous:
\\\\.\\com6 gives me "Device or resource busy", while all other com*
give me "not existing".
So, it is definitely better, it finds something! But do not yet works.
====> Opening and read/writing to COM6 with native win32 API (readfile
etc) works well, both compiled with and without -mno-cygwin
