Error -1073807253

When trying to read the serial port I get this error:
Error -1073807253 occurred at VISA Read in
Possible reason(s):
VISA:  (Hex 0xBFFF006B) A framing error occurred during transfer
So I followed the advice on the website, and used the VISA flush I/O buffer, but it does not read anything on the serial port if I do that.
What am I doing wrong?
- there is always an easy way, but it is always the hardest to find

You said "So I followed the advice on the website". Which website would that be? Also, flushing the serial port isn't likely to do anything if the root cause is hardware. A search on these boards would have turned up numerous messages related to framing errors, as this is a frequently asked question. Bottom line: either your serial port configuration is incorrect, or you have a hardware problem like a bad cable, loose connection, noise on the line, or bad UARTs. Does the serial port connection work with Hyperterminal? What about MAX?
