Windows 7: Hyperterminal problem

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Hyperterminal problem

Good day to all.

I need assistance in regards to a problem on Lenovo x64 laptop with Windows 7 installed. I have installed the Hyperterminal program, but getting this message when trying set it up "Unable to open COM1. Please check your port settings".

I have disabled and even uninstalled the driver without any success.

I have trying to install software on a EPEC module via a serial port as this is still a old machine using this module.

I know that there are usb to serial adapters available, but how do I configure Hyperterminal to get results?

Your assistance will be highly appreciated.

Best regards
