Microsoft dialer.exe or hyperterminal does not recognize or find modem on 2003 Server box?
Posted on 2010-09-13
Microsoft dialer.exe or hyperterminal does not recognize or find modem on 2003 Server box and I have a program that requires the use of dialer.exe. How can I get dialer to recognize my modem? For the past 4 year I have had an internal modem using dialer.exe with no problems. For no apparent reason dialer stopped working. My best guess was the modem went bad, so I replaced old Broadcom modem with an internal USB modem on the same com3 port. In control panel phones and modems recognized the modem and installed the drivers, I can query the modem with success, but dialer does not recognize the modem. I installed an external USR modem on com2 with the same results. I have NOT installed updates on the server during the past month, and I have not made any changes to the server in the past 6 months. After uninstalling and reinstalling the modems I have restarted the server many times. I have scanned for viruses and malware coming up clean. All suggestions are appreciated. Lew
