    Can't get PRO-LCD to work

    I'm trying to get this display working with LCDwriter.  I have been unable to get LCD Smartie to work, but I have gotten the "included" M-play software from VL Systems to work.  My system is Windows 7 X64.

    The closest that I have gotten it to work is using the COMport driver, but it just displays garbage on the LCD.  I read that might be an indicator of a wrong baud rate, but that's the speed that Mplay wors at and the only speed that displays anything on the screen.

     Am I using the right driver?  If someone has the same setup can you give me exlicit set up instructions?

    Are you running the x86 rev of LcdWriter (LCD Smartie is x86)?
