Q: Portmon equivalent for Win 7 64 bit

I have searched High and Low for a equivalent rs-232 communication monitor.  I require one for my job and have upgraded to windows 7 64 bit

 

I have found a few third party solutions but they are not only expensive but dont do as nice a job as port mon does

 

Any suggestions?

 

Also have a few laptops with vista 64 on it, and being 64 bit it will not work...


The one I seem to liek the most is AGGsoftware Advanced Serial Port Monitor but it is 70 per computer, andI would need it on upwards of 10+ licenses 

http://www.eltima.com/products/serial-port-monitor/ this one wrecked havoc on my machine, and would not let me do some advanced features with bluetooth and rs232 connections

Hi,

 

Unfortunately, there isn’t a 64-bit version of Portmon available from Microsoft. If you want you will have to use third party software.

 

Note: Using Third Party Software, including hardware drivers can cause serious problems that may prevent your computer from booting properly. Microsoft cannot guarantee that any problems resulting from the use of Third Party Software can be solved. Using Third Party Software is at your own risk.

Yes, thats why I asked for an equivalent one, Anyone know of one that works well and isn't price gouging, or is a steep price but at least works?

Hi

I am interested in x64 Version of PortMon too.
I love SysInternals because it is fast and working. And free. I am developing on a CommPort device where we do not know why data are not received in some cases. PortMon is the only way to check it.

Agreed.  I could definitely utilize an x64 version of PortMon for troubleshooting.

Any luck with this?  I need this to help me write code to send just ASCII text to a thermal ticket printer (it needs JUST ASCII TEXT and nothing else - no control codes, no special bytes... just text).

I can't seem to make Windows 7 64 bit do that.

You dont need a port manitor to send ASCII text to a terminal unless you are having problems whit the device and need to debug

You all know that you can run it in compatability mode, right? I have win7x64 and run all PortMon with no problems.

Also running win7 64bit and no Computer menu so no way to connect to local.
Running in compatability mode for xp(sp2), nt4(sp5) nor win98 worked.
Number of sites recommend downgrading to 3.02, where can I get that ?

why isn't this being fixed ? security/64bit
would love some feedback

"You all know that you can run it in compatability mode, right? I have win7x64 and run all PortMon with no problems."

Really?  I've tried compatibility mode too and I get nothing.  I mean, PORTMON will launch, it will launch in Win 7 mode too, but it says "not connected" and you can "capture" anything.  Anyone else find a solution?
