    A vendor told me that supposedly Windows 7 has some emulation options for com ports. Is this true? If so how does it work. I have a handheld scanner that is USB, when I plug it into the computer it is recognized as a keyboard (scanner normally in keyboard wedge mode), but I need to use a com port or virtual com port for a program to recognize it. The vendor currently says they aren't making a new driver for 64 bit computers because windows 7 emulation will handle this but I'm at a loss of how that would work. Anyone have any thoughts, comments, theories or suggestions! Would be much appreciated.
