In this video I share my knowledge on how to create a STM32F103C8T6 project with virtual serial port (STM32 acting as USB device).
You can buy STM32 board using following affiliate links (no extra cost to you, if you use these links):
EDIT: If you are running Windows version prior to 10, you may need to install drivers. http://www.st.com/en/development-tools/stsw-stm32102.html
These $2 STM32 development boards have been featured in multiple Hackaday posts past few days and that inspired me to start playing with them. I had previously installed all the development tools, but something went wrong back then and I ended up putting the boards away and kept playing with other development boards.
Now I reinstalled System Workbench for STM32 and STM32CubeMX. Everything worked flawlessly and I had project with virtual serial port (using STM32 as an USB device) running in no time.

4:10 – Making it compile in SystemWorkbench for STM32
5:12 – Demonstrating the serial communication – Receiving data
9:24 – Demonstrating – Receiving and transfering data

“BluePill” STM32F103C8T6 -development board and ST-Link V2 compatible programmer/debugger. Wires between GND, SWDIO and SWDCLK pins of programmer and dev board. Board was powered through the microUSB -port.
Thanks to Al Williams for sharing his notes on using this board with SystemWorkbench for STM32: https://hackaday.io/project/20879-notes-on-using-systemworkbench-with-stm32-bluepill/log/56408-notes
