HyperTerminal and Vista

Filed under Uncategorized

Ok. Yet one more reason to dislike Vista.

Granted, I don’t regularly use HyperTerminal, but when you need to hack at some AT commands, well, it sure was handy to have around.

And it’s been there ever since, what, Windows -1?

But alas, no more.

So, off on the hunt I go. Now, I’ve known about puTTY for quite some time, but I always thought it was a telnet/TTY client. But much to my surprise, it just relatively recently got an upgrade with direct serial access under Windows.

I gotta say, for dinking around with your typical modem setup, this new puTTY honestly seems to work far smoother than HyperTerminal ever did.

C’est la vie, HyperTerminal. May you rest in peace.
