Running Serial Splitter, 4.3.83, on Win 7 (32 bit Home Premium). One hardware device attached to COM1, running at 57.6 Kbps. Set up to split that port to COM7 and COM8, with software applications each using one of those. Both applications run just fine, and both poll the hardware device every 100 or 200 ms. Everything runs just great for a while, but after some random length of time (often an hour or more), I notice that the two applications are no longer talking to the COM1 port device. No error messages, except from one of the applications that notices the device isn't responding. When this happened the first time after the install, I noticed that the Eltima service was stopped and when I restarted it and the applications, the communications worked again. After the second time, I went into properties for the service and set the options to restart the first and second time it stops.
Now when it fails, I end up stopping and restarting the service and then everything is OK. Not sure where to go from here - is this typical behavior, or a problem? I was just evaluating the product on a 14 day trial and if it won't run for 24 hours without failing, I can use it. Help!
