Understand that Win2K and WinXP do not function correctly on the hardware com ports unless all the signals on the ports are dealt with. This has been a problem for WinALDL and many other programs.
I'm not sure exactly why this happens. To make it more bizar... If you use WinALDL with a USB com port adaptor, it works just fine. It's something in how 32 bit Windows manages the hardware ports on the MoBo.
Dr. Ian Malcolm: Yeah, but your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could, they didn't stop to think if they should.
