As I poked around, with Heather and Windows 7, things got a little more
If TBolt is connected to real serial port 1, TBoltMon and Heather can
be run either as Admin or Guest (Standard user), starting from a
desktop icon or the Start Key list..
However, the Run box from the Start Key is not available to a Standard user,
so I couldn't figure out any way to use the command-line switches to change
the Serial Port
to anything other than 1 if you are not logged on as Admin.
As Admin, I can run TBoltMon just fine on a U232-P9 USB Serial Port adapter,
but using this Run command line - C:\Program
Serial receive error, code 0x2
with the exact same connection. Heather
formats the window,
pauses a couple of seconds, then gets the error.
It looks like Dick Moore and I are seeing similar stuff.
