> Kindly guide me how can I open serial communication port using fopen()(ver VFP5) function. In my project ;I dont want to use MSComm ActiveX Control.

As far as I know you can't use FOPEN() to access a serial port in Visual FoxPro (any version). THiks is because Windows controls the ports, not the application, and you have to use MSComm (or similar) to access them.
