Hello. We have been using hyperterminal of Windows XP to capture the serial printer data from mark iv control system. The same data we are using to capture in text format by using the "capture" facility of hyper terminal. Now when the pc is restarted, the hyper terminal function starts by itself (we have used the file in startup of pc) but the capture function to capture the text needs to be done manually. I would like to have the capture into text format automatically as and when hyperterminal file is started. Can anyone please suggest me if it is possible or any other program that can be used in place of hyperterminal to capture mark iv printer data.
