John -

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 
Files\heather\heather.exe /4
Heather gets

            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.
