There are some samples from Microsoft for serial programming in .NET, plus there are various commercial offerings, but if you are familiar with MSComm and want to use MSComm in VS.NET, the following might suit.

I'm not sure about the USB drivers for the bar code scanner, you'll have to check into whether they allow you access the scanner over a COM port.
