Hello,
ˇ I have ordered aˇUSB board of education, which I have not used yet.ˇ I have noticed that there is no directive in the stamp editor for selecting USB as the communications port.ˇ In fact, the only option I get is COM1, which of course is the serial port.ˇ How do I configure the PBasic editor to use theˇUSB port instead of the COM1 port?


thanks,
agentile

Actually, you must first install a driver for the USB which assigns it a Virtual COM Port which the Stamp Editor will use.ˇ You can find instructions and the driver at the bottom of the following link:
