I have installed the software on the ESP32 as also the USB driver on Windows 8.
But how to connect from Windows 8 shell to the ESP32 to get a python pormpt.
I tried with the VM in vagrant with sudo picocom /dev/ttyUSB0 and then I get "Terminal ready" but I get no python prompt.

I hope somone can tell me what to do for getting a python prompt in Windows 8 or VM .

Thank you.

But when I use putty with the settings serial line COM1 and speed 9600 I receive the message Unable to open connection COM1.
