As far as accessing a COM port via script, it can be done
using fso (file scripting object). There are several
examples posted in this ng, but the "Google Advanced
Group Search" doesn't seem to be working very well these
days. I suggest using the standard google and searching
for fso and "COM port".
Beyond that, you will also see suggestions to use the ms
actX control called "msComm32.ocx". http://support.microsoft.com/kb/823179/en-us
However, msComm32.ocx is a licensed control, and you may
not have it installed unless you have purchased some version
of ms visual basic.
If you have an unlimited software budget (255 euros + maint
fee), then you might wish to consider the proprietary
"ActiveComport Toolkit" control: http://www.activexperts.com/activcomport/
