> Is there any way to open the same COM port by using more than one softwares at a time.
> I want to gather/write data from the same COM port by using more tan one software, so that if one software crashes; data shuld be available from other softwares. Kinly help me this regard. Thanks alot!


No problem. I just tried it and there is no problem making two different instances of VFP listen to the same COM port. But then there is problem #2. How do you determine what app is going to gather the data without biting the other app that is designed to do exactly the same?
