VC++6 using weird Comm routine?
« on: August 11, 2010, 05:29:06 am »
Hi All,
I am trying to figure out an 'old' VC++6 front end that might hold an answer to a problem I'm having with a bit of ATE gear. It looks like it was using an ActiveX called mhCom I have gone through it trying to find mhCom and can't.  What I'm now wondering is the mhCom actually an implementation of mhComm from my VB6 days I remember this as an ActiveX for serial comms that let you use non-standard Baud rates (9550 instead of 9600 etc.) and other paramenters.  Just wondering as VC++6 was never my Bag was (is?) mhCom a third party thing or is it built in.

Apparently it's an old VBX Control (remember those?) from a company called microhelp, no longer in existence.

Try a web search on mhcomm microhelp.
