and never dared to ask.

If you want to learn some more about DLLs, get references to some handy utilities, I recommend you read this link:

RE: [archive] All you wanted to know about DLLs

gforseth,

I am begining to read the Microsoft link you gave "All about Dll's".

Any idea where I can find Windows Serial Port API's listed/documented?

Look at my reply on your serial stuff.

I strongly recommend using that approach. If you insist on using the API, here is a clue to get you started:
CreateFileA

Although, if you have no experience with using DLLs from before, I strongly advise you not to go this path.
Even if you have not used ActiveX before, that has a much less steep learning curve than using DLLs.
Of course, individual differences applies.
