its not a complex package, though a bit of a dog to install (it has its own DLLs).
I used it ages ago to talk to something on a serial port and dont remember much of the details.
One thing I do remember is that buying a loopback serial cable let me write junit tests that verified stuff worked; that saved me a lot of time. The other thing I recall is that I had to use threads to wait for data.
