Thanks for posting that - I wasn't aware of that one. There used to be another freeware signed virtual serial port driver, but it was based on a third party library who had them stop distributing it for license reasons. I hope this latest one is not based on the same library or the same fate will probably come its way. After the previous signed freeware driver was pulled, I contacted the author of com0com, the open source virtual serial port driver. I agreed to support the project by offering to cover the cost of the signing certificate and provide a signed version of com0com for free distribution. We have begun beta testing it. If anyone wants to give the signed 64-bit version of com0com, send an email to support at softwx.com.

Thanks for the news Steve, I was hoping it would be of some use since the last version was pulled.

HHD Software Virtual Serial Ports Beta is not based on any third party library. It was developed from scratch in our company.

We would be interested in receiving any feedback you may want to share about this product. Please use the Feedback link in the Virtual Serial Ports Beta Configuration Utility window.
