    Dear group,

    I downloaded this software "cygwin," (terminal), and trying to run Python on
    this software but i failed on the installing the serial,
    Could you please give me some ideal?

    Thank you,

    Best regards,

    Traceback (most recent call last):

    import serial
    ImportError: No module named serial

    Any other reason why you installed cygwin? I mean, with Python being multi platform, you could have installed it directly onto windows
