i.) External tool: Virtual COM port, if needed

Just for Windows users.
Certain time keeping software requires Serial Port virtualisation, for example NextLevelTiming, FlipsideRacing, and XRacerFree. The Virtual Serial Port is required, so that the CloudLaps Virtual Decoder can communicate with the above mentioned software. To this, we recommend the com0com freeware to be used.
