Windows XP comes preloaded with a HyperTerminal application that helps you to connect with other remote computers. The application is often used by system admins to connect to switches and carry out maintenance operation. Unfortunately, both Windows 7 and Vista application lacks this application. There are workarounds, but most of them charge highly and the free alternatives are not standard. We got a better workaround to install HyperTerminal client to WIndows 7 and Vista for free.
Here’s how to install Windows XP HyperTerminal client on Windows 7 or Vista
Start your Windows XP system. Copy the files hypertrm.dll and hypertrm.exe from that system to the target Windows Vista or Windows 7 machine where you wanna install it.
Instead, you can download the files in a zip-package.
If you are using the Zip files extract the two files from that pack to get target system.
Ensure that both the files hypertrm.dll and hypertrm.exe are in one folder.
Double-click the hypertrm.exe file to launch the HyperTerminal client
Once you are done, you have a HyperTerminal client that works normally on Windows 7 and Vista. So you have a HyperTerminal client completely free and it works perfectly.
