How to select an arduino serial port

by Visual Micro 11. April 2010 14:20

The serial monitor is not included in the initial version of visual micro. Therefore the serial port need only be selected to upload to an arduino board using visual studio. An arduino serial port is select using the tool bar drop down menu as show below. When the project is next opened the addin will reselect the same port.

The serial ports menu is dynamic, the menu will detect changes to the connected serial port list of the computer (even whilst the menu is dropped down). The list is in order of device connection. These features are especially useful for device identification when working with multiple boards and ports

Uploading will invalidate your arduino warranty, we accept no liablity should any problem arise from using this tool to upload to arduino
