I have an Access 2003 database running on a Windows 10 computer. As it is right now, the database is running fine.
However, the client now wants me to add a feature that requires the database to read a COM port. In the past (waaaaay in the past ... so long ago that I don't remember what version of Access I was using), I had to read a COM port in a different database and I did so by adding the Microsoft Communications control. When I go to add an ActiveX control to this database, I see Microsoft Communications Control, version 6.0 as one of my options. But when I select it, I get this error:
Microsoft Office Access doesn't support this ActiveX control
So my question is: how do I read a COM port from Access 2003 on a Windows 10 computer?
