Thanks for taking the time to give useful suggestions. And further thoughts!
I still can't get it working under Wine. Tried symlink, group access, Registry editing, resetting... I wonder if I did the registry edit wrongly? My set-up is the same as yours.. Mint 19.3 Cinnamon, Wine 4.0.5
Very frustrating to see the device steadily streaming the ten channels from a Linux serial terminal, but be unable to access them in LB/Wine
Does dmesg command indicate ttyUSB0? Another device I have indicates ttyACM0, which should be reflected in the registry edit. I think you must have the correct serial device as you said the data could be seen in a terminal.
The registry section is HKLM/Software/Wine/Ports, add new key 'Name com1, Type REG_SZ, Data /dev/ttyUSB0'
If it still fails, I have no other suggestions but will let you know if I discover anything.
Should this thread be moved to 'Hardware Interfacing' rather than 'Wishlist'?

Tried again on another machine. Still get Com1 as an invalid handle. One small success- managed to get 'cutecom' in Linux on the menu selection to work withoud needing 'sudo cutecom' at terminal as previously. But any comms terminals installed under Wine fail to see the port.. Out of time and ideas. Not a deal-breaker for me, but very annoying! Thanks for your suggestions- perhaps you'll think of something which should have'seemed obvious to me!
Two further suggestions, in Wine configuration I have windows version set at 7 and com1 in registry is in lower case as it appears in .wine/dev/dosdevices. Are you using Com1 as shown in your last post and if so does it make any difference? In linux Com1 <> com1. The ubuntu help is confusing, it refers to COM1 but shows com1 in registry entry and in commands.
As I have wine serial com1 working on three different machines, two older versions utilising symlinks, I'm out of ideas now, maybe someone else has an answer, there must be one - it does work! And its great to be able to run LB serial on a linux machine.
