Or you could suffer less mental pain, and use C++ boost to get a cleaner interface to the com port. Works cross platform too, which cannot be said for the .NET serial stuff.

But for reading from com port and writing to file I'd say keep it simple. Which translates to your minicom suggestion or even the copy-in-a-dosbox on windoze, and just catting /dev/ttyS0 to your favorite file or pipe on linux.
