Hyperterminal For Windows 7

One of the great mysteries of Microsoft is why they remove tiny programs from newer versions of their operating systems without offering any replacements.

Hyperterminal or hyperterm for short has been included in windows since windows 95. It is not used by the majority of people, but for some power users and technicians who need to use the serial port, it is invaluable. It is the only program i know that can transfer files using z-modem protocol over serial. I often need it to repair faulty mikrotik routeros boards like the RB532 that randomly loses its config. After much frustration abd looking for alternatives, hyperterm is now running on my windows 7 laptop. I now share it with you as a new years present.
