Virtual Serial Port Driver is one of the earliest products by Eltima Software! And now our team is proud to inform you that Virtual Serial Port Driver 8 has arrived!

Virtual Serial Port Driver is a solution that creates virtual serial ports and connects them in pairs via virtual null-modem cable. All virtual serial ports work and behave exactly like real ones, emulating all their settings. Create as many virtual port pairs as you want, so there will be no serial ports shortage and no extra hardware on your desk.

So, let’s see what you can do with the 8th version of Virtual Serial Port Driver:

  • create ports for the current user session only;
  • RDP users are able to create port with the same name (e.g. COM1) in each user session;
  • enable automatic update of ports’ list, thus you can see pairs created in other user sessions;
  • instantaneous ports creation lets working with them even before PnP manager detects the newly added ports;
  • delete ports even if they are opened by other applications;
  • loopback pinout wouldn’t save for a ports pair after the system reboot.

“We all live in a yellow submarine” or Underwater Adventures of Eltima

Posted by Alex Taylor on July 28th, 2011

Hey guys! You know, this post had to be an ordinary case study, but the way this user utilized our software impressed us so much, that we decided to devote a little bit more attention to this case.

Several weeks ago we were contacted by Bath University Racing Submarine Team. These guys were looking for software which would help them create virtual serial ports and connect them, and have Googled Virtual Serial Port Driver.

“We will be using your product to communicate between the commercial software that runs our multibeam sonar, which is designed to receive NMEA GPS & compass data over a serial port, and new Labview software the students have developed to control the submarine. Both need to use the same serial port information simultaneously, and so your port duplicator will allow the control software to capture the navigation information and feed it right out to the sonar software for display to the pilot during the race.”

“The benefit of the solution is that the students will be able to focus on the mechanics of the submarine and the fluid dynamics around it to develop their control solution, rather than spend hours developing workarounds to deal with the monopolisation of the COM port by the sonar software.”

We are pleased that Virtual Serial Port Driver was a part of a cohesive team and (we hope) helped Bath University Racing Submarine Team to sail well at submarine races at Vobster Quay Diving Centre.

“The team did quite well in the end, despite a series of setbacks that started with US Customs. The Minerva’s top speed of 3.3 kts was good enough for the middle of the twenty-boat pack – official results haven’t been released yet, but somewhere between 8th and 10th overall. Really not bad considering the budget differentials – there were some beautiful boats on the race course this year! We can claim to have been the fastest international boat (i.e. non-Canadian/American), and clinched third place in the unofficial women’s division.

The competition isn’t all about speed, however – there are several awards for innovation and design – and we collected one of those: for Best Use of Composites!

All in all, a result we can be happy with. Lots of room for improvement, but there always is… The important bit is that the students now have a real appreciation for systems engineering, and what’s involved in bringing a stack of ideas from concept to finish line.”

We want to thank members of Bath University Racing Submarine Team for their interest in Virtual Serial Port Driver and for the possibility to participate (even not being there personally) in submarine races – this was a new and interesting experience for us.

Long awaited release of Virtual Serial Port Driver 7

Posted by Alex Taylor on July 26th, 2010

VSPD is Windows 7 compatible

Virtual Serial Port Driver is one of those products Eltima started from in 2001! And now our team is glad to inform you that Virtual Serial Port Driver 7 is finally here!

For those, who are not familiar with Virtual Serial Port Driver – this utility creates virtual serial ports and connects them in pairs via virtual null-modem cable. For example, Virtual Serial Port Driver can be in use if you want to test or debug different applications that use null-modem cable, or to test or debug different serial port device emulators such as modems, fax, GPS etc. You can find detailed usage scenarios here.

The most significant improvement is that Virtual Serial Port Driver now fully supports Windows 7! The user interface has also been refreshed. Feel free to upgrade and try the new version on your Windows 7 computer! BTW, application restart is no longer required after entering registration info, so nothing will distract you from learning new Virtual Serial Port Driver options.

Once you’ve installed it and started creating pairs, pinout scheme will visually show you how signal lines are connected, thus making process of pinout customization more convenient.

Moreover, updated Virtual Serial Port Driver can easily detect what application virtual serial port was created with.

Please, note also, that Windows 98 and Windows NT 4.0 support is available only in OEM version now.

So, feel free to upgrade and let us know what you think about new options!

Waiting to hear from you!
