Using HyperTerminal in Windows7

Recommended Posts

The HyperTerminal files (hypertrm.dll, hypertrm.exe) can be copied to a Windows 7 PC to allow use of this software.

Saving a HyperTerminal session (*.ht) does not start properly when double clicked in windows 7.  To allow a HyperTerminal session to start in Windows requires the following changes.

  1. Navigate to Start/All Programs/Accessories/Communications, left-click on the last HyperTerminal icon, right-click on the *.ht file that you just created and click send to Desktop.
  2. Right Click on the new desktop shortcut and select properties- under target, delete the quotation marks from the path.
  3. At the beginning of the path, add the following text: "C:\Program Files(x86)\HyperTerminal\hypertrm.exe"
  4. Make sure there is a space between the two paths.
  5. Click OK to save the changes
