    missing hypertrm.exe file, where can I download that fiel? please help

  5. to kavin,

    did you follow the steps on How to re-install HYper Terminal on WIndowXP?

    as you can see, when you execute the file communic.inf, the communic.inf file will generate the missing hypertrm.exe (I think).

    so you need to check if you have the communic.inf file in the INF directory under windows directory.

    if you can not find it; try to copy communic.inf of the windows installation CD.

    Tengo la necesidad de usar el hyperterminal en Windows XP, pero no se donde empezar, pues nunca lo he usado ya he tratado de buscar tutoriales pero nada y la opción de la ayuda no esta activa.

    Lo que necesito es hacer conexiones por via MODEM almacenar unos datos en un archivo, por medio de sentencias, desconectar, todo lo anterior de forma automática a una hora programada.


  8. to Bekyna,

    I do not think hyper terminal is the right software for you.

    try searching google for:

    serial modem logger
    serial modem logging

  9. Bekyna said

    Lo que dijo ya se puede hacer esta trabajando en diversas maquinas ya están las conexiones específicas, pero ahora a mi jefe se le ocurrió que esas conexiones se hagan solas, y que la información solo se almacene en un archivo eso es lo que no se como hacer.

    como faço para usar o hyper terminal.preciso de arquivos que estão em outro computador.como faço para me conectar com esse computador através do hyper terminal?

    • você poderia usar hiper terminal para transferir arquivos de um computador para outro. mas eu não recomendo. Hyper Terminal é comumente usado para acessar base de dados ou a interface com um hardware embutido desenhos.

      se você quiser usar o Hyper Terminal para transferir arquivos entre computadores, então você precisa de um cabo serial a liga entre os 2 computadores. então você precisa definir o hiper terminal em ambas as máquinas que têm as mesmas configurações. que é que eles devem ter a mesma porta COM, a mesma taxa baud, etc

      uma vez os 2 computadores estão ligados uns aos outros, então você precisará ir para transferência menu para enviar e receber ficheiros entre 2 computadores.

      existem outras maneiras de conectar computadores uns com os outros que são mais eficientes e confiáveis.

      you could use hyper terminal to transfer files from one computer to another. but I do not recommend it. hyper terminal is commonly used to access basic database or to interface with a embedded hardware designs.

      if you want to use the hyper terminal to transfer files between computers then you need a serial cable the connects between the 2 computers. then you need to set the hyper terminal on both machines to have the same configurations. that is they must have the same COM port, same baud rate, etc.

      once the 2 computers are connected to each other, then you need to go to transfer menu to send and receive files between 2 computers.

      there are other ways to connect computers with each other that are more efficient and reliable.

    Ah yes, that would have worked if they had left the cabfiles on the laptop. I also got the error message “missing hypertrm.exe file”. Seems they don’t want us to install what they have removed. Pity, we are suffering from an outage until we can get Hyperterm running.

    This is invaluable info if your WinXP does not have this installed and it is not shown under Add Windows Components. On my Inspiron 1300, I found the path to communic.inf under c:\i386.

    Wonder why Microsoft is so silent on this issue?

    • Most of the time c:\i386 is your windows installation folder. Whenever, I install windows xp, windows setup leaves a copy of itself in windows folder and not on C drive, so that I do not use the CD every time windows needs some files from the installation CD. If this is the case, then to install the terminal you will have to replace %windir%/inf with c:\i386

      RUNDLL32 ADVPACK.DLL,LaunchINFSection c:\i386\communic.inf,Hypertrm
