I have MS Development Environment 2003 version 7.1.3088 and .Net Framework 1.1,
old I know but I can't afford to update. My problem is there is no System.IO.Ports.
The compiler is telling me that 'Ports' does not exist in the class or 'namespace Systme.IO'.
I have 'using System.IO.Ports;' at the top of the file. Examples from the web tell me that all I need to do is add the above class and call the correct user functions. Is Ports a new feature? It is also not listed in Help->Index dialog list. I have the feeling I out of luck here. But, perhaps those more experienced in C# may have a solution that does not cost an arm and a leg.

thanks
