I use a program (LG Contents Bank) to get pics from my Cell Phone. It uses a
virtual serial port (those USB -> Serial converters). So, I create a link named
"com1" pointing to ttyUSB0 in dosdevices.

Just like you said, I'm not able to list the serial ports on the app running
over wine (An old issue, I guess). But, if edit the app's .ini file, and set
manually the desired COM port, it works properly.

This program you're trying to use (4DGL-WorkShop2) has also a config file
(4DGL.ini, in Dep directory) and a parameter with the COM port to use ( Section
[plataform], parameter port ). Maybe if you set it manually, maybe it works.

Other thing: I know this may look obvious, but your create device is really
ttyUSB0 right? You can confirm this pluging it and typing "dmesg" in terminal

Best regards,
