I guess I'm pretty new at this and learning. I've been reading and working with examples but haven't found anything to work. I'm looking for the bare bones method of viewing just one analog output on the arduino preferably in Visual Basic, or any other Visual Studio language. Andrew Craigie has his Firmata examples available that look very nice but I have yet to get the examples to work. His components seem to be the best start for me. Can anyone help me out? I don't need anything fancy, simpler the better. I appreciate it!
