I have quite a bit of programming experience but its all on a pcb level for engineering testing. I have never written a stand alone windows app. Anyway, I'm trying to figure out how can i communicate with centrafuse. I want to be able to take a command from the com port and it initiate a button press in centrafuse.

For instance. I press a button on my steering wheel and it triggers an event on a small MCU board and sends a command to the computer via a com port. So basically if i have a play button on my steering wheel and press play i want it to tell centrafuse to play.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
