The following is for a WinXP service pack 3 system:
HyperTerminal was malfunctioning due to an unsuccessful previous operation. (Installing and removing of a non Microsoft HyperTerminal program)
Following the recommended procedures the malfunctioning persists, i.e. 1. No Help menu in the reinstalled Microsoft HyperTerminal. 2. Clicking on a .ht file creates the message "Could not read session file."
I hope that it will be possible to find a fix to these issues.

You have the Windows installation files somewhere?

by seanferd In reply to HiperTerminal Help Meny

On a CD or on the HDD? If not, re-installing Windows components will fail.

If the .ht files were created with a different version of HT, they may <i>possibly</i> be incompatible as well (although I don't recall seeing this between the Windows and PE versions before).

You may have other problems with Windows in general. Try running the command
sfc /scannow. You may also want to use a decent malware scanner like MBAM.

If you cannot get it to work under any circumstances, use a different terminal program or do a repair install of Windows.

Windows installation files

by Paul1Stol2 In reply to You have the Windows inst ...

The "sfc/scannow" did not work for me since it reported I "have inserted the wrong CD. (i.e., a different Windows product than the version installed). My system is WinXP SP-3

On the other hand I have the well working "Windows installation files" on another WinXp computer. Copying them to the malfunctioning system fixed the lack of help menu files.

Thanks for your advice.
