I am writing a program in C++ to read and write from a serial port.
One issue that I have not been able to fix is, after calling SetupComm it fails.
GetLastError() tells me that it was error
0x00000013, "The media is write-protected" is the definition of that error code.
Googling what that means has lead me nowhere in terms of programming. I keep finding results pointing to blogs over harddrives refusing to let the user write and stuff like that. None have been programming based results.
One additional, interesting piece of information, is despite
SetupComm failing I can still successfully write to the serial port. I just can't read from it.
Here is the code I have for opening the connection, up until I call
string s = "com1"; LPCSTR port = s.c_str(); DWORD dwDesiredAccess = GENERIC_READ | GENERIC_WRITE; DWORD dwShareMode = 0; LPSECURITY_ATTRIBUTES lpSecurityAttributes = NULL; DWORD dwCreationDistribution = OPEN_EXISTING; DWORD dwFlagsAndAttributes = FILE_FLAG_OVERLAPPED; HANDLE hTemplateFile = NULL; handle = CreateFile(port, dwDesiredAccess, dwShareMode, lpSecurityAttributes, dwCreationDistribution, dwFlagsAndAttributes, hTemplateFile); bufferSizeReceive = 16; bufferSizeTransmit = 16; BOOL success = SetupComm(handle, bufferSizeReceive, bufferSizeTransmit);
