Saving and loading TCP-Com configuration files

TCP-Com allows you to save and load configuration files using the Save and Open options in it's File menu. It will also remember the currently active settings that are in effect when you quit the program in a file named Default.T2C. For example, suppose that you configure two COM ports in TCP-Com and activate them both and then select Exit from the File menu (with both ports still active). The next time that you run TCP-Com, it will automatically retrieve the settings that were in effect when you last quit the program and it will even automatically activate the connections for both ports. In fact, TCP-Com will even remember if its window was minimized when it was last shut down and automatically minimize itself again.

In many situations, you may want to have TCP-Com set up to run automatically by either selecting the option "Load TCP-Com with Windows at startup" in the TCPCom Options window or by placing a shortcut to TCP-Com in your Startup folder so that it automatically runs each time you start your computer. Because TCP-Com automatically remembers how it was configured the last time that it was run, you do not need to have an operator present to open a previously saved configuration or activate any of the connections. All of this is handled automatically by TCP-Com when it loads into memory.

Notes: TCP-Com registers the file name extension .T2C with the operating system so that you can open up a specific configuration file that has been saved with the extension .T2C by clicking on its file name in the Windows Explorer or by launching a shortcut to a TCP-Com configuration file.

When you minimize TCP-Com, it will insert an icon into the Windows system tray instead of placing an icon in the Windows taskbar. To open the TCP-Com window after it has been minimized, right click on the TCP-Com icon in the system tray and select "Open TCP-Com" from the popup menu that appears
