I am sorry I cannot help with Win development. I do not work on Windoze.

Can't you boot your machine in Debian with a live cd or usb, or
partiton your disk to have double booting? Again, if you are going to
run something in Raspian, why not develop it in Debian...I guess you
will save some headaches.

In anycase, the serial part of instrumnet-control is a bunch of C++ files

I am pretty sure you can port all that code to Windoze, get it running
there for you and then help us bringing your modified code into the
