Q3300010: Which Visual Studio version is required to compile the Visual C++ samples?

You need Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 or higher. All sample projects are created in Visual Studio 2015 and Visual Studio 2019. If you use a newer version of Visual Studio, then Visual Studio will prompt you to convert the project file.

If you use an older version of Visual Studio, you must recreate the sample projects yourself and add the source files.

In all C++ files that make use of an ActiveXperts Serial Port object, you must include 'AxSerial.tlb' and 'AxSerialConstants.h'. No files need to be added to the project.
