I am seeking information on how to write my own code for a virtual serial port for windows Xp or Windows 7. Preferrably using Borland C++ builder.
Any useful information would be appreciated.
Please note that I know of commercial software available for this and information on such products is not what I need.

Thanks,

Roger

Unfortuinately, I am looking for source code, not an application.
The link you suggest does not lead me to the source code ?

Hi there,
There is a component with source code at www.winsoft.sk named TComPort.
I am using it for VERY long time and never failed me.
There is a trial version to try.
The full one comes with full source code for around $30 I think.
