Hi there:
 
Is Portmon 3.03 supported on 32-bit Windows 7?  I am able to run the executable but it doesn't show any ports or allow remote access to another computer.  (There's not even a Computer menu item.)
 
Thanks.

Hi,

I'm having the same problem.

Running in:
- windows 7 32bit.
- from Harddrive (not from a networkdrive).
- firewall turned off
- a user with administrative previleges;
- with elevated privileges (doing "run as administrator" from mouse right button click menu).

Using PortMon 3.02:
Choosing "Connect Local" Portmon exits immediately.
In evenviewer appears the following error:
    Description:
        Faulting application name: PORTMON.EXE, version: 3.0.2.0, time stamp: 0x394671a3
        Faulting module name: PORTMON.EXE, version: 3.0.2.0, time stamp: 0x394671a3
        Exception code: 0xc0000005
        Fault offset: 0x00010e96
        Faulting process id: 0x3f4
        Faulting application start time: 0x01cd075d3c168769
        Faulting application path: C:\MyDir\Tools\Drivers\PORTMonitor\PORTMON.EXE
        Faulting module path: C:\MyDir\Tools\Drivers\PORTMonitor\PORTMON.EXE
        Report Id: 7e21d90a-7350-11e1-baac-e89a8f229943

Choosing "Connect To Another Computer" and putting "127.0.0.1" ens up displaying, after a while, an error message saying that it cannot connect to remote computer please start the Portmon Client.

Using PortMon 3.03:
"Computer" Menu item does not appear at all, and “Ports” menu item is displayed at gray (disabled). 

 
I Hope these details may help someone to figure out what is the problem and that may result in a fix or workaround to this issue.
Thanks

Me too post.

Windows 7 SP1 x64.
Portmon 3.03.

Portmon fails to launch, even when running with admin credential stating Error 2.  Event logs contain the following 2 events.
-----
Application popup:  : \??\C:\Program Files (x86)\Sysinternals\PORTMSYS.SYS failed to load
----
\??\C:\Program Files (x86)\Sysinternals\PORTMSYS.SYS has been blocked from loading due to incompatibility with this system. Please contact your software vendor for a compatible version of the driver.

It's not the same thing. You've got a 64bit system. If you look on the right of the Portmon download page, you'll see it's only supported on 32bit systems.

On a 32bit system, I get an Audit Failure in the Event Log: "Code integrity determined that the image hash of a file is not valid", with matching Windows Error Reporting event in the Application Event Log.
 
On 64 bit Win7, that might be a problem, in which case you could try booting with device signing turned off to use portmon.
 
But the observed problem is actually the same on both my 32 and 64 bit machines: sometimes portmon can't see any serial ports. On Win7-32, sometimes the problem goes away. I haven't tried as much on Win7-64, so I can't report any further.
