Not wishing to write externals I need Livecode to deploy on different platforms with ease , for the most part it does this very well. But there is a serious weakness and have projects screaming for a solution for Android and MacOS , This being serial communication (VCP) via USB and Bluetooth support using open driver etc.
USB / BT / Serial communication using LiveCode works perfectly on Windows but fails on MacOS and not available for Android.
Hardware with USB / Bluetooth serial communication is commonly available for use on Windows , MacOS and Android but I cannot use Livecode for all 3.
This is a show stopper until resolved.
Fully understand that this is not an option for IOS as it requires apple certified hardware.

Subject: Open Driver on MacOS
MacOS High Sierra
Open driver hangs on MacOS , tried Sarah's SerialTest stack which hangs also.
Item 3 of the drivernames is correct but when open driver or file is attempted it hangs. Bug ?
