Ticket #4358 (new defect)
Break signal on serial port is not delivered to the port in vm
|Reported by:||vadimrapp||Owned by:|
On the host machine, I run an application that listens to COM port and reacts when the port sends Break signal. To the port I connect a device capable of sending Break signal, and the application reacts as programmed.
In Windows v.m. I specify COM port mapped to the real port on the host machine. Then I run the same application in the virtual machine and have the device send break signal. But the application in v.m. does not see it.
Break signal is described at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/119506
its implementation in Visual Basic at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa259405(VS.60).aspx
I can provide the sample program demonstrating this, if needed.
