I have an USB Arduino Board running on IBM laptop (T41).In the comport 11. So far I have tried several ways to commnunicate from PD andMax/Msp to my board. I have used the pduino patch, and other patches fromMax/Msp.actually one guy from the Max list build a serial object fro windows to detectcomports bigger than 5. But still I get messages like no serial port detected(in Max), or [comport] invalid handle for COM in PD. even if a changed them tocomport 11. this actually has happened with pduino patch. I had to downloadmany patches and other solutions, like to install the latest PD test. which isalso not working. Actually the only thing that has semi worked was withVVVV_33beta10.Very odd.Now I have tried this SimpleMesssageSystem tutorial but only I get the horriblemessages such as: [comport] invalid handle for COM in PD and error:serial:specified port not available.But now I have tried with changing com11 to k as should be in Max and it isworking!!!!Well the thing is thatI want use pd instead, since I have a patch that I want tocommunicate and send orders to the arduino board.Will you help me with any solutions??
do you mean the extended test version or the latest extended version of PD??
2.- I changed port from 11 to 4 at the system and hardware manager device. After some psicological struggle of what is going to happen with the device that was in that port (which I have no idea what is was) I finally decide to go for it. and I said yes.
Actually i added a [metro] and it is working Smiley.you can see at:http://onsight.id.gu.se/~hugo/SimpleMessageSystem_PD.jpgand the LED diod is blinking like crazy Smiley
