I recently purchased aBS2 with the USB version of the BOE. I am interested in getting Visual Basic 6 to interact with the BASIC Stamp hardware through the USB port. Can anybody get me started? Thanks in advance to anybody/everybody.

The FTDI drivers create a virtual comm port so you can treat your USB-BOE just like any other serial device (use the MSCOMM control for serial comms in VB).
