Control your PC with the 50g
Message #1 Posted by Egan Ford on 16 July 2008, 7:06 p.m.


This article will demonstrate how to use your 50g to control your Windows/XP keyboard and mouse. Examples include:

  1. Simple data entry.
  2. Multiple cell Excel data entry.
  3. A plotter application.
  4. Interactive mouse control.
  5. Controlling EMU48.
This automation is achieved with SerialKeys. SerialKeys is a serial port keyboard and mouse interface primarily used as an accessibility feature. Although this article targets the 50g and Windows/XP, it should be trivial to repurpose for any 48/49 and for OS/X and Linux.
