I think the quesetion is a generic cygwin / windows 7 question.  It is
probably better suited to a cygwin mailing list / forum than this list.

All you need to know is the device name of usb-serial converters on
widows 7 with cygwin.

i have never heard of somebody doing this on windows 7.  Almost everyone
here uses Linux or MacOS.  And the only prominent Windows user involved
in the project is working with Windows XP.
