Hyperterminal on Microsoft Windows Operating Systems


Some Windows OS do not come with Hyperterminal installed.


  • Windows Vista
  • Windows 7


Hyperterminal was not included in the Operating System software package.


Installing Original XP HyperTerminal

  1. Download this .zip file which contains the necessary executable and dynamic link library for running hyperterminal
  2. Unzip to local hard drive.
  3. Double click the hypertrm.exe to launch hyperterminal
  4. See Lessons Learned Article #1502 for proper cable connection and hyperterminal settings if needed.

Alternatively, extract the two files from any XP installation and copy them to the new Windows OS.

  • hypertrm.exe default installation is in C:\Program Files\Windows NT
  • hypertrm.dll default installation is in C:\Windows\System32.

Alternatively, from a Windows XP CD, both files reside in the i386 directory.
