"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This can only be done with a WDM driver which can only be implemented with MS VC++.
The Windows 2003 DDK is needed. The CD is available from Microsoft (free except some shipping fee).
The DDK contains a command line compiler so you do not need Visual Studio, but it is easier with it.

The virtual RS232 driver is one of the hardest to write if you want full DOS box compatibility.
