No serial port found when using hyperterminal software

Hi, I am using a hyperterminal software called Coolterm. I have used it in the past with success, however now when I run it I get an error "No serial ports found, Your system currently does not have any serial ports. Unless at least one serial port is added, this application will no tbe usable" . I am unsure what this means and how to fix it. Any suggestions would be helpful, thanks.
