Tic controller USB communication over COM port

I’d like to use the Tic controller with the USB mode.
With serial commands as byte sequences rather than the command-line text.
I’d like to use the USB as a COM port i the C# language.
But when I plug in the USB cable from the Tic to the PC I do not see a COM port as a device.
I clearly see the Tic 36v4 as a serial device.
Any suggestions?

Hello, jekain314.

The Tic controllers do not have a virtual COM port, so if you really want to use a COM port you could use a USB-to-serial adapter to send serial commands via USB. Something like our CP2104 USB-to-Serial Adapter Carrier will work.
