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.

Enabling TELNET and SSH in windows 7

Windows 7 doesn’t support TELNET by default. and no windows version ever supported ssh.

For telnet there is an easy way to enable it, and it is by going to Start, Control Panel, Programs And Features, Turn Windows features on or off
and select the Telnet Client.

But here we are going to do a neat trick to enable both telnet and ssh using the amazing  PuTTY instead.

1. download PuTTY from here

2. copy putty.exe to your system32 folder.

3. inside system32. create two new files telnet.bat and ssh.bat

4. Edit these two file at follows :

telnet.bat:

putty.exe -telnet %1

ssh.bat:

putty.exe -ssh %1

save everything and close.

Now you can run telnet or SSH from the command prompt or even the start menu search box as follows:

c:\> tenet 192.168.1.5

c:\> ssh 192.168.1.5

as if you were using a good old Linux terminal.

Upgrading ASUS laptops to windows 7

Newer asus laptops (the ones sold under Vista) are a little tricky to upgrade to windows 7, they have a small hidden partition that handles the boot  and recovery processes.

Once you format your C: to install 7 you will lose some files related to the recovery application. The boot handler in the small hidden partition will try to check the recovery files because it assumes that your windows installation is corrupted, but some file are missing, and that will result in a big red ERROR written on the screen, it looks pretty much like this one.

ERROR

to fix this do the following.

  • Insert your window 7 CD and chose to repair your windows installation.
  • Open the command prompt.
  • write “bootsect /nt60 c: /mbr”
  • restart


everything should work fine.

what you did was to rewrite the master boot records to load windows7 and ignore loading the recovery process

Automatically Detect and Download all your PC drivers

During the last decade, I got the chance to try many driver repairing tools, some of them were free, some were not. I never liked any of them though, some couldn’t correctly detect the hardware that is unrecognized by windows, some provided dead driver download links, and some were loaded with spywares are scarewares.

When I was working on a friends Acer laptop, trying to find almost all of it’s drivers that Windows curiously was unable to recognize any of them. Even the manufacturer was not quite sure what the hell  they put in this model.

That is when I tried a software called Device doctor, I kinda liked it for the following reasons.

1. Free

2. Was able to detect all the needed drivers.

3. Was able to provide driver updates for the installed drivers.

4. All drivers were hosted at the device doctor website.

5. No registration required !

6. There is even a portable version of the software, to be used without installing from a flash drive, if you were geeky enough for that.

I still haven’t got the chance to really check it’s capabilities, but so far, it’s looking good.
