Hyper Terminal in Windows 7

If you’ve recently upgraded to Windows 7 and are banging your head to find HyperTerminal, then you’re not alone!

HyperTerminal was a little program that let you connect to other devices.

Windows 7 will no longer provide HyperTerminal program. If you need HyperTerminal to control serial devices, there is a trick to get it back

If you still miss Hyper Terminal and you cannot live with out it then you can actually extract two files from your XP installation and copy them over to Windows 7.

since Hyper treminal is not available you still have alternative


Tera Term

Enjoy.... :)
