Troubles with flowcode examples

Hello !

I am currently in electronics/programming studies. I (and 2 other friends) have to work on a project using an ECIO40, flowcode 4 and Visual Basic if needed (I couldn't post on the Flowcode V4 subforum since I don't have a Flowcode V4 license, my school does).

Our project is to build a working USB turret, plugged directly via USB to the computer, and controlable from the computer.

As we need a graphical interface, we'll have to use Visual Basic (we use the 2010 version). I saw there is an exemple of commanding a PIC microcontroller via USB with VB, so I opened it. However, the files are of a .frm ; .vbw ; .vbp that I don't know nor can't open.

Could you please tell me how to open these ?

Also, I'll gladly accept help on USB commands for the PIC for VB/Flowcode.

Hello. The file formats are VB6 - I'm afraid it may be difficult to open these in VB 2010.

If you need to, the following links may be helpful, but if the VB files are not large, I would probably just look at the code in there and re-write this in VB 2010. The .frm file is the one with the code in it (the 'form'), the others are project files. ... en&id=9639

There is at least 1 VB.NET program in the collection of V4 examples for Flowcode V4: ... php?id=361

Look in the "Components\USB Slave" folder of the ZIP file.
