Some kind soul finally posted a patch that fixes Win32::SerialPort for 64 bit installations of Perl on Windows.

The patch is here.

Thought it might be worth noting here...I can't be the only person that's suffered 32 bit perl on Windows for this reason. This has been broken for quite some time.

    This fix did not work for me. I can write to the serial port I cannot view any feedback from devices connecting tot he serial port. I think it still is a bug in how microsoft changed the USB configurations in windows 10.
      I have been able to communicate with a numato usb relay using the fix mentioned above on windows 10. It does appear that some of the status flags have changed.

    It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
