Thx Connor

Wow, outstanding.  I wonder if this would work in Vista?  It should do as
Vista and Win7 are only cosmetically different.  Another wee project for

I copied the installed folder into a shared location on my server and then
copied it over my network onto the Windows 7 machine.  Put the folder in
Program Files, made a link to ncu.exe in my Start Menu, and voila!
Installed!  No guarantees for anyone with USB serial adapters (or anyone
else for that matter) but it worked for me.

Dan's spot on; most Windows programs, especially older ones, don't rely on
the registry as heavily as you might think.  Most are perfectly capable of
starting up and recreating the entries they absolutely rely on.
