Windows 7: Serial Device Control in Windows 7

Serial Device Control in Windows 7

Hi Everyone,

I am running Windows 7 RTM 64, and have a question about serial device control. I am trying to control an analog tape deck with Adobe Premiere CS4 using RS232 protocol and the serial port on the PC. Everything is set OK, port parameters, machine settings, etc. But Premiere hangs trying to talk to the deck. So I am curious if there is an issue with serial control in Windows 7. The rest of Premiere works spectacularly, as does the entire CS4 suite. The one snag is serial device control. I have used the same deck, cable, 422 to 232 converter, etc, with my other editing system which is Avid Media Composer and have had no problems at all. I am thinking it might the 32 bit fly in the 64 bit ointment, since Premiere is 32 bit, but everything else works so well.

Any thoughts, please.
