Press Release Summary:
Virtual Serial Port Kit (VSPK) v5.1 creates virtual serial ports and connects each pair of them via virtual null-modem cable. All data written to one virtual serial port can be immediately read from other and vice-versa. Able to integrate this functionality into any software, solution emulates all types of null-modem schemes and speeds up development process during debugging/data-logging periods. Applications recognize ports created by VSPK as nominal hardware serial ports.
Original Press Release:
FabulaTech Announced Release of Virtual Serial Port Kit Update
With minor bugs fixed, Virtual Serial Port Kit to provide an affordable solution for serial port emulation.
United Kingdom, Liverpool - FabulaTech, a leading global provider of virtualization solutions, today announced release of Virtual Serial Port Kit new version 5.1 with minor bug fixes and enhanced user interface. The product does not support old license keys, all customers which bought it a year ago and wish to upgrade will be provided with the new license key free of charge.
Virtual Serial Port Kit creates virtual serial ports and connects each pair of them via a virtual null-modem cable. So, all the data written to one virtual serial port can be immediately read from the other one, and vice versa. This functionality can be easily integrated into any software.
"There are two applications which are exchanging data via serial ports. These programs should be connected and a null-modem cable is used for it. There are several problems you can come across: there are no two serial ports on your PC, all serial ports are already occupied, it is necessary to connect several pairs of programs simultaneously and one null-modem cable is not enough", comments Alan Rurke, one of software developers. "Using Virtual Serial Port Kit you can emulate unlimited number of serial ports and connect each pair of them via a virtual null-modem cable. So, your applications can exchange data just like they do via hardware serial ports and real null-modem cables".
"It is easy to test. You can run two copies of terminal program (e.g. standard Windows HyperTerminal) and connect them to COM7 and COM8. So, all you type in the first HyperTerminal will appear in the second and vice versa. You can also transfer files between HyperTerminals and do whatever you want", says keith Morgan, FabulaTech senior software developer.
Virtual Serial Port Kit pros:
-The applications recognize virtual serial ports created by VSPK as the usual hardware serial ports.
-There is no need to waste money on different null-modem cables, because VSPK emulates all types of null-modem schemes.
-Your hardware serial ports are not occupied. So they can be used for any other purposes.
-These are no cables hanging on the backside of your PC because all data transmission is being done inside.
Program's cons: 15-day free trial only.
The program allows to speed up development process during debugging and data-logging period. One can debug any program (which uses serial port) by connecting it to another program (e.g. serial device emulator). It is also possible to connect ActiveSync directly to Pocket PC emulator using Virtual Serial Port Kit.

Virtual Serial Port Kit functionality can be easily integrated into any application. So one can create and configure virtual serial ports from one's own application directly.
