Post RobotC v2.03 for RCX with serial IR tower
I just downloaded and installed RobotC v2.03, I found a item in platform menu,
It is COM5 (USB to RS232 port), but even if I selected it, I still can't download firmware to my RCX. The error is no link to RCX!

By the way, I can use same tower both in bricxCC and brickOS In cygwin, I can download firmware and program toy RCX On both environment!

What can I do next? Please help me.

In my testing, ROBOTC seems to require the use of the RTS/CTS handshaking lines, whereas BCC doesn't care. If your COM port (or cable) doesn't support the HW lines RTS and CTS, ROBOTC will assume you don't have an IR tower connected.

Thanks for your reply.
I am using IBM 22P9053 USB to serial adapter and I checked my port status, the RTS/CTS is on, what can I next?
