Windows FTDI Serial Speed Settings

Post by Fred »

Serial sucks on Windows, surprise surprise. You need to fix some config to make it work right. Good apps work anyway, shit apps break. My loader works, and is just slow...

Then hit OK three times and be happy.

I thought there was a sticky about this from ages ago, but I searched yesterday and didn't find one. Here it is, better late than never. Took the screen shots yesterday, forgot to post the thread.
