Welcome to the list, Alex!

There are people here who are a LOT more familiar with Windows <-> 
device communication than I am, but I can at least ask questions.

Are you familiar with the "open driver" command and 
"serialControlString" property? They might give you some of what you need.

I confess I haven't worked in a Windows environment in many years, so 
what I used to know may now be obsolete. Ahh, technology!

Best regards -

> Hello all. I am a beginner user of LiveCode. I’ve managed to work my way through a project which I think I can complete. However the project has to be able to communicate with an I/O board (Numato 16 channel USB GPIO Module for example) from a Windows Standalone application. I have not been able to find any guidance or samples for how to do this. This has led me to wonder if it is even possible to creat some kind of serial communication using LC or whether I should start over with a different platform. I am doing the LC work using a Mac. Any help or advice would be much appreciated.
