Windows Serial Communication Component Library

The Windows Standard Serial Communications Library (WSC) series of software development tools consist of Win32, and Win64 Dynamic Link Libraries (DLL's) that are based on the Windows serial comm API. The Windows Serial Communications Library uses the standard Windows API to communicate with any device connected to a RS232 or multi-drop RS422/RS48 serial port (including virtual ports and usb to serial converters) from within an application.

The WSC product line provides a simple interface to easily write software programs to control serial devices such as barcode scanners, modems, lab instruments, medical devices, USB serial devices, scales, GPS navigation, etc.The component library includes 46 functions plus modem control, XMODEM and YMODEM, ASCII and ANSI terminal emulation. A good selection of example programs and complete documentation is provided with each WSC SDK.

Some of the many features of the Windows Standard Serial Communications Library (WSC) are as follows:

The Windows Standard Serial Communications Library (WSC) is a developer toolkit that can be used by programs written in all supported computer languages including those written in C/C++, Visual C++, .NET, Delphi, Visual Basic, VB.NET, VBA languages (Access, Excel, Word, etc.), Fortran (ABSOFT), COBOL (Fujitsu), PowerBuilder, PowerBASIC Console Compiler, Visual dBase, Visual FoxPro, Xbase++, etc.

Purchase a developer license for WSC for one software language and use the same WSC registered DLLs with all other supported languages for WSC (i.e., purchase WSC4C and use the DLLs with WSC4VB since all versions of WSC use the same DLLs (WSC64.DLL, WSC32.DLL).

The WSC library makes calls to the Windows serial port API, and runs under all versions of 32 and 64 bit Windows through Windows 10. The evaluation versions of WSC are fully functional and can be used for a 30 day trial period.
