41/71 to Windows/XP - OS/X file transfers via RS-232, who is doing it?


I've read a few articles on transfers using DOS or Linux, but not Windows/XP or OS/X. E.g. Windows/XP will not allow 16-bit DOS application to access the serial port making transfers using older DOS code a challenge (e.g. EMU71/41).

So, what are any of you doing?




you might give my HPILCOM a try. it works under 95/98/XP/V and does not require admin rights. however, HP71 is not supported.

anyway, any terminal program capable of running under xp should do the job.

best regards,


drop me an e-mail with your email-address, so that i can send you the zip file (unfortunately, not before oct., 21st)


Hi Egan,

I have the same problem (for 71 at the moment). You can find the discussion here: http://www.hpmuseum.org/cgi-sys/cgiwrap/hpmuseum/forum.cgi?read=126576.
