We have a small program written in Visual Basic back in 1997. It currently is working well on a computer that runs Windows 2000. We want to run the program on a newer computer that runs Windows XP, but we found it only partially works. A lot of the functionality is still there, but there are problems with communicating over a serial port. I suspect there are compatibility issues since Windows has gond through a number of updates.

The program controls 3 linear actuators, moving & monitoring their positions. It also monitors the output of a magnetic field gaussmeter. It is having trouble communicating with the linear actuators.

I have all the source code (only 300 KB), I was hoping it could be ported to a newer version of Visual Basic tweaked a bit and then made compatible for Windows XP.
