INSTALLATION


Q3000017: I want to re-install ActiveXperts Serial Port Component. I uninstalled first, but now the installation tells me that I cannot install it in the same destination directory as before. Am I doing something wrong?

You are right: you cannot install the product in an existing directory.

At uninstall, the original directory (default: C:\Program Files\ActiveXperts\Serial Port Component\) is NOT deleted in case there are files created/modified after the previous installation. You must delete these files/directories manually.

Once the directory (C:\Program Files\ActiveXperts\Serial Port Component\) is deleted, you can re-install it in that directory.


Q3000016: On 64-bit Operating Systems, can I also register the 32-bit component for my 32-bit applications?

Yes, on 64-bit systems, you can register both the 64-bit component (for 64-bit applications) and the 32-bit component (for 32-bit applications). You can use the same REGSVR32.EXE command for that:

REGSVR32 AxSerial64.dll
REGSVR32 AxSerial32.dll

Q3000035: Where can I find the ActiveXperts Serial Port Component Release Notes?

You can view the ActiveXperts Serial Port Component Release Notes by using the following URL:
activexperts.com/serial-port-component/releasenotes/


Q3000012: When trying to register your component DLL from the command line, REGSVR32.EXE returns the following error: 0x80070005

This is not a problem of the ActiveXperts component, but is related to the security settings of your Windows computer.

Please try the following:

To start the command prompt, start it from the start menu by locating the "Command Prompt" in the start menu. Then, right-click on this item and select "Run as Administrator".

Then, issue the following command from the command prompt:

REGSVR32.EXE AxSerial64.dll

or

REGSVR32.EXE AxSerial32.dll

You can also try to turn off UAC (User Account Control)


Q3000030: Does the ActiveXperts Serial Port Component installation overwrite existing Operating System files?

No, it only installs two ActiveX component files: one 32-bit DLL (AxSerial32.dll) and one 64-bit DLL (AxSerial64.dll) that both make use of the Operating System.


Q3000025: I manually registered the ActiveXperts Serial Port Component DLL file on another machine, and now I want to unregister. How can I do this?

To uninstall the 64-bit component, issue the following command from the command prompt:

REGSVR32 -u <path>\AxSerial64.dll

To uninstall the 32-bit component, issue the following command from the command prompt:

REGSVR32 -u <path>\AxSerial32.dll

Q3000010: When I run Setup, I get the following error message: "Error installing iKernel.exe (0xa00)". What's wrong?

Most probably, you don't have administrative privileges on the machine where you install the product. You must have local administrator rights to install ActiveXperts Serial Port Component on the computer.


Q3700003: How do I know what's new in the latest version of ActiveXperts Serial Port Component?

For a list of new features and fixes, see ActiveXperts Serial Port Component Release Notes.


Q3000020: How can I uninstall ActiveXperts Serial Port Component?

You can simple uninstall the software by using the 'Add/Remove' applet in the control panel. It will delete all files, except two: AxSerial64.dll and AxSerial32.dll. This article explains how to uninstall these files manually.

The core of ActiveXperts Serial PortComponent is two DLL's: AxSerial64.dll (to be used by 64-bit applications) and AxSerial32.dll (to be used by 32-bit applications). These DLL's are shared components, which means that they might be required by other software vendors. Therefore, these DLL's are NOT unregistered/deleted from the system using the 'Add/Remove' applet automatically!

To uninstall AxSerial32.dll manually on a 32-bit operating system:

  • Open a new command prompt and change directory to: C:\Program Files\ACommon Files\ActiveXperts\
  • Execute from the command-line: REGSVR32 AXSERIAL32.DLL
  • Execute from the command-line: DEL AXSERIAL32.DLL

To uninstall AxSerial64.dll and AxSerial32.dll manually on a 64-bit operating system:

  • Open a new command prompt and change directory to: C:\Program Files\Common Files\ActiveXperts\
  • Execute from the command-line: REGSVR32 AXSERIAL64.DLL
  • Execute from the command-line: DEL AXSERIAL64.DLL
  • Change directory to: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\ActiveXperts\
  • Execute from the command-line: REGSVR32 AXSERIAL32.DLL
  • Execute from the command-line: DEL AXSERIAL32.DLL

Q3000015: Can ActiveXperts Serial Port Component be installed manually?

Yes it can. To install the ActiveXperts Serial Port Component DLL on another machine, simply copy either the AxSerial64.dll (for 64-bit applications) or AxSerial32.dll (for 32-bit applications) to the target machine and issue the REGSVR32 registration command on that machine.

To register the 64-bit component, issue the following command:

REGSVR32 AxSerial64.dll

To register the 32-bit component, issue the following command:

REGSVR32 AxSerial32.dll

Please note that on 64-bit systems, you can register both the 64-bit component (for 64-bit applications) and the 32-bit component (for 32-bit applications).

PORTS AND DEVICES


Q3100070: When I open a port, I get the following error: 30203 ("TAPI Device Manager failed to respond"). What does it mean?

The Windows Telephony device name is valid,. There can be two reasons for this error:

  • The Windows Telephony device is already in use by another application;
  • The port speed is wrong; Windows is able to open the port, but is not able to initialize the device properly because of the wrong speed. Make sure that the port speed of the device and the port settings of the Telephony device in the Control Panel both match.

Q3100140: I need to sense the DSR signal change. How can I do this?

ActiveXperts Serial Port Component is not event driven. You need to call the QueryDSR function to check the state of the DSR signal. If you need to check the state continuously, you need to call this function regularly, probably in a separate thread.

To monitor CTS (Clear-To-Send), use the QueryCTS function; to monitor DCD (Data-Carrier-Detect), use the QueryDCD function; to monitor RI (Ring-Indicator), use the QueryRI function.


Q3100065: When I open a port, I get the following error: 30202 ("Cannot open specified device"). What does it mean?

The means implies that the Windows Telephony device is valid, but that the associated COM port is either already in use, or does not exist.

The error does NOT mean that the Windows Telephony device is invalid (that would reported as error 30201); it neither means that the Windows Telephony device is already used (that would be reported as error 30204).


Q3100025: Do I need software flow control?

Software flow control is only used for data transfer. By default, flow control is switched off. Devices like modems (sending/receiving to eachother) requiore software flow as soon as data transfer begins.

For more details, please read FAQ item 3100010 and FAQ item Q3100015.


Q3100015: What is the difference between hardware flow control and software flow control?

Both are used for handshaking (see also FAQ item 3100010).

With Hardware Flow Control, the receiving device sends a positive voltage along a dedicated handshaking circuit as long as it is ready to receive. When the transmitting computer receives a negative voltage, it knows to stop sending data.

With Software Flow Control, the handshaking signals consist of special characters transmitted along the data circuits rather than along the hardware flow control circuits.


Q3100120: With ActiveXperts Serial Port Component, we sometimes receive incomplete strings. What is wrong?

Most probably it takes to long to read strings from the device. For instance, there's a time-out before the end-of-line character is received. To fix this problem, try to increase the ComTimeout value.


Q3100060: When I open a port, I get the following error: 30201 ("Cannot find specified devicename"). What does it mean?

This means that the Windows Telephony Device you are using, is NOT defined on the computer. You may have made a typing mistake. Error 30201 does NOT mean that the port is already in use (you would get error 30202).


Q3100035: What does the ComTimeout property mean?

The ComTimeout property is the timeout in milliseconds before functions ReadString, ReadBytes and ReadByte return.


Q3100050: When I open a port, I get the following error: 30102 ("Unable to perform operation because the device does not exist"). What does it mean?

This means that the COM port does not exist. Error 30102 does NOT mean that the port is already in use. If the port is in use, error 30103 will be reported ("Unable to perform operation because the device is already opened") instead.


Q3100110: Can I play a sound file on my modem using ActiveXperts Serial Port Component?

Yes, as long as your modem supports a voice command set. It is easy to find out if your modem supports voice or not: issue the 'AT+FCLASS=?'. A modem supporting voice will respond with a list of numbers that includes the number 8.

To enter voice mode, issue the following command: 'AT+FCLASS=8' (or 'AT#CLS=8'). In voice mode, you can answer voice calls, playback sound files and record audio.

For a complete list of voice modems commands, check your modem manual.


Q3100080: I'm using a GSM modem (WaveCom Fastrack). I get the following error: 30351 ("Unexpected response from modem"). In the log file, I see some undisplayable characters beinig received from the modem. What could be the problem?

Most probably, the baud rate causes the problem: COM port and modem are not sending/receving at the same speed. We stronly recommend to change the baud rate to the same speed configured for the modem.


Q3100030: Can I change the baud rate for a port when it is already opened?

Yes you can. Set the BaudRate property and call the UpdateCom function to apply the property change.


Q3100130: Does ActiveXperts Serial Port Component trigger an event when new data has arrived?

No, the component does not trigger events. All received data is buffered in memory. You need to poll for new data using a timer, or use a separate thread for receiving your data.


Q3100010: What is flow control?

In many scenario's, it is necessary for the transmitting device to know whether the receiving device is ready to receive information. You might, for example, be sending data to a printer, and the speed of communication may be faster than the speed of the printer. The printer will need to be able to stop the computer from sending any more chatacters until it is ready to receive them. Similary, you may be sending data from one computer to another, and the second computer cannot process the data as fast as it is coming in.

In both cases, information must be sent back from receiving device to the sending device to indicate whether it is ready. This is known as 'Flow Control'. There are two types of Flow Control: Hardware Flow Control and Software Flow Control.


Q3100055: When I open a port, I get the following error: 30103 ("Unable to perform operation because the device is already opened"). What does it mean?

This means that the port you are attempting to open is already in use by another application.

Check if there's another application that is already using the COM port. In some situations, you may want to benefit from a thing called 'port sharing', where one port can be shared by multiple applications. To benefit from 'port sharing', you must use Windows Telephony devices (like 'Standard 9600 bps Modem').


Q3100045: Are USB devices supported?

Only when the USB device provides a serial port driver. For instance, most modem manufacturers provide serial port drivers for their modems, so that the modem can be accessed through a virtual COM port. These modems can be used by ActiveXperts Serial Port Component.


Q3100100: I'm transmitting through a pretty slow device. What I need is a small delay between the characters transmitted when using your WriteString function. How can I achieve this?

It is easy to achieve, using the InterCharDelay property. This propery indicates the delay (in milliseconds) used by the WriteString and WriteBytes between each byte transmitted.

Please note there's also another property that can be used for slower devices: PreCommandDelay. It specifies a delay (in milliseconds) used before bytes are written to the port using one of the 'Write' functions.


Q3100040: Can I change flow control for an open port?

You can't change your hardware flow while a port is opened; you must specify the hardware flow control before you Open the port.

Software flow control can be changed while a port is opened. First change the SoftwareFlowControl property, and the call the UpdateCom function to apply the property change.


Q3100020: Do I need hardware flow control?

This depends on the the DCE (Data Carrier Equipment), the device to which you are connected. If this device requires hardware flow control, you'll need it too. In most cases, hardware flow control is required; that's why it is enabled by default.

For more details, please read FAQ item 3100010 and FAQ item Q3100015.

Q3250010: How can I use ActiveXperts Serial Port Component object in my HTML form on a PC?

Please read the following article: Using Serial Port Component with HTML. This document describes how to refer to ActiveXperts Serial Port Component, and how to declare, create and use the objects.


Q3250020: Is it possible to use the component in an HTML page on a PC? Do you have an HTML sample available?

Yes it is possible. There is an online sample that shows how to use the component in an HTML page.

In this sample, the ActiveXperts Serial Port Component ActiveX component is downloaded and installed automatically from the ActiveXperts web site. You get prompted to trust the activexperts.com site. You can customize this HTML sample, and let the ActiveX source point to another location by changing the 'codebase' reference inside this HTML file.

To avoid prompting, please read article Q3250025.


Q3250025: We are using the component within HTML/JavaScript code. The browser is Microsoft Internet Explorer. Each time the ActiveX control is loaded in the browser, a security warning pops up. Do you have any suggestion to surpress this message?

There are basically three ways to avoid prompting:

  1. Add the website that hosts the ActiveX component to the trusted sites of all Internet Explorers. This would need some automatic configuration on your LAN's Internet Explorers, for instance through Group Policy (recommended) or through logon script. This way you only decrease Internet Explorer security for that particular site. Security for all other sites remains the same. This solution only works as long as the Serial Port Component users are part of your network.

  2. You can sign the component (the actual AxSerial32.dll). If you only use the component for internal use (i.e. in your network), you can use the standard Windows Certificate Server (part of Win2000 and higher). For more more information on signing an ActiveX component yourself, see activexperts.com/support/toolkits/sign. If the component is used outside your network, you should use a public Certificate Authority, for instance Verisign.
    ActiveXperts Software does not offer facilities to sign ActiveX COM/OLE components.

  3. From the Internet Explorer menu, select "Tools" -> "Internet Options"; click the security tab, and click the 'Custom level...' button.
    In the list of options, change the 'Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe for scripting' setting from disable to prompt. When you restart Internet explorer and run the page again, Internet Explorer will ask you whether to run the control or not. When asked click 'Yes' and the page should work correctly.

MISCELLANEOUS


Q3800010: Is ActiveXperts Serial Port Component thread-safe?

Yes, ActiveXperts Serial Port Component is 100% thread-safe. It can be used by multiple applications simultaneously, and each individual application can have multiple simultaneous threads using ActiveXperts Serial Port Component. This doesn't mean that COM ports can be shared by different threads; usually this is not possible.


Q3800020: In the documentation it says that it supports simultaneous writes to multiple com ports, but I cannot find this in any example?

Basically this is how it works (illustrated by a VBScript sample):

Set o1 = CreateObject( "AxSerial.Comport" )
Set o2 = CreateObject( "AxSerial.Comport" )

o1.Device = "COM1"
o1.DeviceSpeed = 19200
o1.Open

o2.Device = "COM2"
o2.DeviceSpeed = 19200
o2.Open

Q3800015: I want to send a sequence of non-displayable data to the comport. How can I do this?

Use the WriteByte function. It sends one byte of data to the comport. Usually, you call 'WriteString "ATZ"' to initialize a modem. You can also use the following commands to accomplish this:

obj.WriteByte 97
obj.WriteByte 116
obj.WriteByte 122
obj.WriteByte 13 ' 13 means: vbCr, the carriage character
