Win NT Modem Problem

By mvelloor ·
I have my system configured to dual boot between Windows 98 and Win NT 4.0 . I have my Modem ( MDP3900 V-U ) installed COM2 in Windows 98, but I am unable to install it on Win NT because it doesn't work properly on COM1. I tried installing COM2 port by going into Control Panel and Ports option. But when I restart the machine, I am getting a service failure message which says " While validating that COM2 is actually a serial port, there was a cnflict in latch registers. COM2 is deleted". Is there any way I can fix this problem ? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Win NT Modem Problem

NT just doesn't dole out Com ports depending on the available Serial ports on the machine as Win 98 does. You have to actually install something for that tells it that it needs it. The best way to get a modem to install in NT is to download the lastest NT compatible drivers from the manufacturer. If it's an .EXE, run it. If not, unzip or exact the files to a directory. Then run the "driver" setup/install program, if it has one. That's the best. This way the driver install program will setup theCom port. If it doesn't have an install program, only then install it through Control Panel/Modems by telling it you have the disk, and pointing it to the file directory. Hope that helps.

I guess it's a Winmodem (software modem) It might not be supported by NT. Is it a PCI card? Check http://www.aztechca.com/support/drivers_modem.htm
for drivers. They might emerge soon. It's an Aztech card, isn't it? It matches the naming of their modems but it's not listed on their site. Perhaps they will update the site and drivers soon.

Answer #1 is the one to go with. You need to have the drivers for NT. and then install you modem under NT.

Good luck.
