Hi,

i have a problem with receiving data through the com-port.

While receiving data via ReadFile sometimes ClearCommError reports that a CE_FRAME - error occured. From this point on the next 100-200 bytes are complete garbage but after a while it works normal again.

Does anyone know what this error is about?

btw:
I am using Delphi 7 and tested my programm on Win 2000 and XP

First get TurboPower Async Pro (now free from http://sourceforge.net).
Why writing RS232 communication again when you can get free professional components.
