I'm the one to blame since I wrote those externals. Sorry for the delay; 
I don't use PD very much these days, so I don't often read the list.

I once compiled my ascii externals for Windows, using cygwin, as a 
special request. I personally don't encourage the use of Windows, so I 
won't distribute this version. But I can send it to you.

What are the numbers that comes out of the comport object?
Connect it to a print object and look at the console window...
