I'm at a loss now for what to do next. The only thing I can think of is for you to download my test program that I posted with my bswrapper thread. That has the basic code on how it connects and you should be able to test things out with it. The lines to adjust are the lib functions at the top of the form1 code.
You just need to install visual studio express for vb. Its a free download. The code is not difficult so dont be scared off by the fact its code. I had no coding experience before tackling carputer stuff and have learned it all of google.
If you need help with the test app please post in that thread rather than this one.
