Connection not Saved

Connection Not Saved in HyperTerminal Private Edition

Q – My connection isn’t being saved. Each time I launch the program I am asked for the phone number again. Why?

A – You may be starting the executable instead of launching your specific HyperTerminal Connection.

For existing connections, you should be accessing Start, Programs, HyperTerminal Private Edition, HyperTerminal Connections. In the list you should see your connection, the one you created.

If you click the HyperTerminal Private Edition item from the menu, you are launching the program executable. By design, HTPE will always open with a New Connection dialog, expecting that you need to create a new connection. Click Cancel. Then you can click File, Open, and select your connection.
