COMTEST (32-bit) (HCF_TOOL-025, FCG TP20025) version 1.0 and 2.1 runs in MS DOS and must be launched from within DOS.
COMTEST operates properly on DOS or the DOS mode of Windows 95/98. COMTEST does not provide correct timing information in NT/2000.
COMTEST requires 32-bit Windows.
The HART Test System (KIT-192, FCG TK20192) v3.2+ includes COMTEST locally installed on the system, this is the preferred method.
COMTEST requires three user inputs to run:
- A Command number (Command 3 or Command 9 are typically used.)
- The number of messages (The number of repeated messages must be from 1 to 9999 messages.)
- The number of retries (The number of retries must be between 1 – 5. Selecting zero retries will cause the test to abort.)
