Capture data from COM ports

Posted on 2001-06-04
Last Modified: 2012-06-21
I have a component (from Microsoft) to capture data that is coming into a COM port. Where can I find another component to do that same thing with NO problems? I've had so many trouble with Microsoft's that I NEED to change the thing !

Thanks a lot in advance !

if u agree to pay for something that is really very good than use Async from 

It's the best that I ever meet and I looked a lot . Working with it for almost 4 years ...

Turbopowers are stupidly expensive though for port components..

best place to look would be

marco coccos is a good one  (TComdrv32)
theres also a Async32 pack which is good

and Asyncfree also worth a look :

u r wrong .....
the package from turbopower is a real professional one is working very good ..
it's quite expensive but it's not only comport it's everything including TAPI and modems and anything u want conneted to communications ...

u can't even compare it .....

Check out Varian Async 32

as inthe says, has some good serial communications components to be highly recommended. That's where I got one of them which made it a snap to write a phone system monitoring proggie (hooked to IB 6.01 server for storing data).

At about a 1000 calls a day not a flaw for the last 2 months or so. Async Pro is indeed very good, but had I checked torry's site first, I would have never spend the $$$ Turbo Power asked. If you need some extra goodies, though, such as encapsulation of pagers etc AsyncPro os the thing to go for

Personal I always loved to work with the best and if it was something for my job the $ for TurboPowere wasn't so much ... for me at home is something else..
The TP Async have a lot of features including capability to work with TAPI and faxes and so on .....

Thank you all !!!

Have a nice day :-)
