That is unfortunate. I have no Windows machines available, so I can not test or fix this in any way. Is there a developer out there who can take over this task?

Unfortunately neither EInstein nor Basilisk have a fully functional serial port emulation. Sync via Ethernet works a bit already, but there is some work left to do.

Maybe we could try things out and contribute bug reports, etc., and together figure out what's going on. I'm not a coder, but I'm not afraid to try compiling things, messing with bug reports, etc. 

That would be great. I should probably give it another try to publish Einstein again and get some more attention from external developers.
