View Full Version : How to install pySerial

08-14-2017, 02:10 AM
Apologies for this very basic question. I am a psychology student running an experiment in Vizard (hence v limited programming experience). I'm trying to work with serial ports, but need to install pySerial to be able to access the ports using Vizard.

How do I install pySerial? I've spent hours googling and trying various downloads, but it keeps saying "no module named serial". Can someone please give me very basic idiot-proof instructions? Thank you so much!

Try installing it from the Vizard package manager (http://docs.worldviz.com/vizard/#Package_Manager.htm). Go to Tools > Package Manager and then search for pyserial. The first search result should be pySerial. Let us know if that works for you.
