Enable Hyper Terminal in Windows 7

One of the big complaints about Windows 7 is the lack of HyperTerminal. So here is how to get HyperTerminal on to Windows 7 (32 or 64-bit).
On the Windows 7 box make a new folder under C:\Program Files\HyperTerminal for 32-bit and for 64-bit make a new folder C:\Program Files (x86)\HyperTerminal
  • hypertrm.exe
  • hypertrm.dll
  • hypertrm.chm
If you want to have HyperTerminal on your Start Menu just create a shortcut to hypertrm.exe and put it in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs and when you go to All Programs under the Start Menu HyperTerminal will be there.
You can download the files you need from this link:

Install /Enable Telnet Client Windows 7 from command line

Today I got a requirement from our Network Support Team. As part of their day – day activities, they need to troubleshoot network related issues by using Telnet.But one of my colleagues didn’t find telnet in Windows 7 system. He was upset as the telnet client is not installed by default and asked me to apply some GPO to enable the same.

Instead of configuring a GPO, below command can be executed by a batch file, psexec, startup/logon script.

pkgmgr /iu:”TelnetClient”
