Hi Mike,

As already suggested in other postings, try upgrading your windows comms driver. Check
the date and size of the current 'comm.drv' in \windows\system

If it is 9,280 bytes and dated 10/3/92 (10th of March) then it driver
update would be worth while. One which I have tried is wfxcomm.drv
(9,488 bytes 17/4/93)from Delrina. You could located it elsewhere but I got a copy from
Imperial College London /computing/systems/ibmpc/windows3/misc/

The file unzips to .drv and a .txt. The text file contains the
instructions. Only useful if you have a 16550 Uart serial chip.

Hope this helps
