HyperTerminal For windows 7, How to get it

Windows 7 has removed our good old HyperTerminal, an utility used to as a terminal console over telephone or serial RS32 links. These all may seem like old features that need to be taken out and shot. But believe me, real geeks and communication professionals would love to have HyperTerminal back to windows.

Hyperterminal is not even available through the add remove windows features like telnet. To get it back you will have to follow one of these plans:

How to get HyperTerminal in Windows 7?

Option 1: copy hyperterminal executables from an XP machine to your Program Files > Windows NT these files are: hypertrm.exe and htrn_jis.dll, if you don’t have an XP machine near you, you may follow this link to get them http://www.filefactory.com/file/c0b15cf/n/Hyperterminal.rar

 

Option 2. Forget HyperTerminal, and start using PuTTY. PuTTy, is much better than Hyperterminal, it offers SSH and Telnet as well. And it is free.

That’s it, now you have your Hyperterminal features back.

Hamachi disconnects immediately after connection – FIX

If your Hamachi Logmein client is unable to connect and it keeps on connecting, probing, logging and then disconnecting. then you may have a problem similar to mine.

The Problem is that I had an old version of hamachi, which I uninstalled, but some settings stayed and caused hamachi to malfunction.

You will first need to uninstall Hamachi, when asked to, delete all settings. then install it again, Careful if it says that there is a stored configuration that it wants to use. you must say NO.

That’s that, it should work fine now.

 

iTunes 10.x Freezes when connecting iPhones. Fix it!

After upgrading to iTunes 10 and 10.2 I noticed that iTunes tends to freeze or hang as soon as I plug my iphone, it will resume working as soon as you unplug the USB connection. Or minutes after the device is connected, but it wouldn’t detect the device.

At first I thought it was a power issue, but then I realized that other software like i-fun-box works just fine.

After some digging I discovered that my “Kaspersky Antivirus” was conflicting with itunes in some way causing it to freeze. closing Kaspersky completely before connecting the device solved the problem for me.

Try closing any antivirus or security software you have, it may solve the issue

Paste the following code inside it

@Echo off
title Enter The Matrix
color 0A
dir c:\windows\system32
cls

echo —————————–

prompt Hello Neo
cmd

Now  save the file, from now on every time you want to open the command prompt do the following:

1. Do your evil laugh.

MapleStory Error code =-40 solution

I wanted to try the MMORPG MapleStory, I downloaded the client using the direct download link (not the downloader), when I tried to install the game later I got

[ERROR CODE= -40]
installation failed.(11433,0)

I googled around a bit to find that this is caused by a corrupt installation file. What we are doing here today, is to fix the installation without having to re download the entire client.

1. download Flashget (just google it) then install it

2.  From the Import list under file, choose “import corrupted download” find the client installation of the game.

3. Let flashget think about it for a while, then it will ask you for the download URL, go back to the game website and get the link, in my case it was http://download3.nexon.net/maplestory/fullversion/MSSetupv88.exe

4. after thinking about it for a while Flashget will decide how much of the game is missing and needs to be redownloaded. Start the download and let it finish.

5. Install the game and have fun!

This method can be used to repair in corrupted direct download file not Just the MapleStory client discussed here

What is your favorite MMORPG?
