What VIRTUAL SERIAL PORT DRIVER’s сustomers say
Handy and reliable software tool
Even if a machine doesn’t have COM ports, the handy and reliable software tool with an intuitive user interface will link you to virtual serial ports and capture all the traffic data you may need.
An endless supply of (virtual) com ports! As my needs increase, I just add more port pairs.
I use multiple Software Defined Radios (SDR) in the course of my hobby (ham radio). Each one requires a control program in order to work. I define a set of com ports in this program to communicate with other programs such as data decoders, contact logging, frequency listings, etc. I have several definitions set up within the control software, each definition has multiple sets of com port pairs, I can have 2, 3 or more SDRs running concurrently, each tuned to a specific set of frequencies and modes and each one driving any number of other software packages. I have to say that I have experienced very little trouble with the Com Port driver, and when there has been an issue, the support team have sorted it very quickly and professionally. I currently have virtual com port pairs starting at 4-5 and going through to pair 44-45. For the moment this is enough, however, as requirements change I know I can add more as necessary without causing a problem. I received a free license for the com port driver in exchange for details of how I could/would implement the software in my radio station. I did this in the form of a block diagram of the physical equipment and the software I used with them. I indicated how the virtual com port pair would communicate with the individual programs/equipment. I was surprised at the initial complexity and, subsequently, how often I changed from one facet of my hobby to another and back again! I would recommend this software if you need to create com port pairs and need extra functionality within those ports. It is expensive, but it is a quality product and you tend to get what you pay for in this world. I have no connection to Eltima, other than being offered the license in exchange for the details mentioned. Although I can’t attach a file to this review, I do have the diagram available should anyone be interested (e-mail me: firstname.lastname@example.org)
Serial communication problems no more
We’ve faced certain serial communication challenges with our application.
To try to solve them, we have prototyped with several products before deciding to go with Virtual Serial Port Driver.
It turned out to be a very stable and simple-to-use product. VSPD helped us simplify the solution requiring serial communication and thus significantly improved business processes.
Besides, their support team was fantastic.
I Create Virtual COM port pairs EASILY thanks to Virtual Serial Port Driver
When it comes to developing and testing embedded or IoT devices, I’ve found that Virtual Serial Port Driver (Version 9.0) is my favorite software to use. It’s stable, reliable, and EXTREMELY easy to use and integrate into every software I develop. It has saved me incalculable hours that I would have otherwise been forced to spend testing and trouble-shooting on a “real” device.
Two applications I have really enjoyed using VSPD 9.0 have been Chat via C# using Microsoft System.IO.Ports, as well as using C# to emulate embedded devices that transfer sensor data.
It’s great to be able to develop complex applications from one serial COM port- or even from a laptop.
It’s interface is very easy to understand, and it isn’t overly intrusive and obnoxious. While it is packed with a lot of really helpful features and flexibility, it’s very easy to learn and implement.
I really REALLY like and recommend this software by Eltima for freelance developers and large-scale companies looking for an easy solution for serial port communications. I haven’t found an easier software than Virtual Serial Port Driver 9.0.
Virtual Serial Port Driver Saved Me Tons Money
I work for a Wildlife Trust in the United Kingdom and we handle hundreds of precious, irreplaceable wildlife books. I was asked to develop a computer system that enabled the organization to run a system that would prevent anyone from removing the books without authorization.
I needed a stool that would let us develop software from only one single computer so that we could cut down on development time by letting us work on the project in the office and on-the-go.
After online research and reading other reviews, Virtual Serial Port Driver ended up being exactly what we needed.
Unfortunately, it ended up being a bit out of budget, and so we thought we would be forced to look for alternative software, even though we were very happy with the results of VSP Driver XP. To our massive delight and appreciation, Eltima stepped in and offered a discount so that the software fits into the budget and we could complete our project!
To this day we continue to use Virtual Serial Port Driver by Eltima when we develop applications, and it has helped us be successful in many following projects.
This software really saves us a ton of time and money. Very glad we found Eltima.
