HyperTerminal problem in Windows XP!

I had no problem with HyperTerminal in Window Me but this one in windows XP, is annoying me!

I wanted to use bits 7-N-1 but every time i dial, it has resetted itself to 8-N-1 therefore I can't make a connection! I can't find any way to stop it resetting itself.

I am using for typetalk service which is ideal for deaf and 7-N-1 is needed to use that service. How will I sort this program out? or has it to do with modem?

Seems like no one here has used HyperTerminal before then?

It is hardly ever used nowadays. I only ever go near it to test a modem if I have a problem. The setting for 7 is certainly there though. I can only think that the modem is re-setting it as you suggest. It probably needs 8 to dial out. t is not possible to alter this sort of option in the modem settings, they are usually controlled by the program using the modem, in this case Hyperterminal.
Sorry I can't be of any more help.

I have downloaded and installed HyperTerminal Private Edition...No lucks.

And of course, I have set data bit to 7 and saved it. It doesn't work either.

What is annoying, that it kept resetting the setting, no matter whether it has been saved, etc etc!
