yes its disappointing to lose the hyperterminal in w7.
So, here a little trick to get you hypeT back in your fav OS.
Windows Xp had Hyperterminal. its just a dll file and an exe file that did the job.
So, Y not just use those files to run hyperterminal in w7!!!
just copy the files::
1. hypertrm.exe from C:\Program Files\Windows NT\ to the same location in w7
2. hypertrm.dll from C:\Windows\System32\ to the same location in w7
make a shortcut to hypertrm.exe and you r good to go...
the files download
