I am trying to make a call using this value but am unable to find the number for this or the reference I would need to put in to the "using" clause so my program would know what it is.

Are these values listed anywhere?

Do you know how I could use the following code to clear any pending communication errors?
C# Signature:

[DllImport("kernel32.dll", ExactSpelling = true, SetLastError = true, CharSet = CharSet.Auto)]
static extern bool DeviceIoControl(IntPtr hDevice, uint dwIoControlCode,
IntPtr lpInBuffer, uint nInBufferSize,
IntPtr lpOutBuffer, uint nOutBufferSize,
out uint lpBytesReturned, IntPtr lpOverlapped);

That looks good although when I run the code the comm port cannot be opened as (according to getlasterror) "The system cannot find the file specified".

This may be due to using a usb to serial adaptor.

I will leave this question open for another day while I try and find the solution to this, and then assign the points to you.
