Default replacement for hyperterminal

I just found out win7 doesn't include hyperterminal. Is there a freeware equivalent out there or a way to load hyperterminal into win7?

I would suggest a Google search. A quick Google search came up with several possibilities:

Original XP HyperTerminal

If you just canít live without the original HyperTerminal in Windows XP, you can actually extract two files from your XP installation and copy them over to Windows 7 or Vista.

The two files you will need are hypertrm.dll and hypertrm.exe. Simply copy those files into any directory on your machine and it will work. You should be able to find hypertrm.exe in C:\Program Files\Windows NT and hypertrm.dll in C:\Windows\System32.
