Operating system Microsoft Windows and OS/2

HyperACCESS is the name for a number of successive computer communications software, made by Hilgraeve. It was the first software product from Hilgraeve, and it was initially designed to let 8-bit Heath computers communicate over a modem. In 1985, this same product was ported to IBM PCs and compatible systems, as well as Heath/Zenith's Z-100 non-PC-compatible MS-DOS computer. Over the years, the same version of this technology would be ported to other operating systems, including OS/2, Windows 95 and Windows NT. It has earned a total of five Editor's Choice awards from PC Magazine.

In 1995, Hilgraeve licensed a low-end version of HyperACCESS, known as HyperTerminal (essentially a "lite" version), to Microsoft for use in their set of communications utilities. It was initially bundled with Windows 95, and subsequently all versions of Windows up to and including Windows XP. Starting with Windows Vista, Microsoft no longer bundled HyperTerminal, thus Windows 7 and Windows 8 does not include it either. The commercial products HyperTerminal Private Edition and HyperACCESS support all versions of Windows up to and including Windows 8.
