Only as an unbricking attempt.
Looks like I have deeper googling to do on this one. Of course at this point it would be faster to go Globule's route but why stop now when I am having so much fun!?
HT version (you might have better luck with it), the 3 files was from "C:\Program Files\Windows NT" (might want to put it in the same folder if possible)
Edit: checking the file versions it seems the one I listed on the main thread is actually newer 5.1.2600.2180 as opposed to my version 5.1.2600.0, but at least its a different one ..

Not really finding much on the serial file transfer for putty. Maybe it is not primarily designed to do that? IDK
I finally got it to work via the other method
I think your suggestion to turn down the buffering (advanced tab) to improve the connection was what did the trick for me. Once I did that it worked just fine.
Went back and tried the HyperTerminal to see if the slower buffering would make it work but it seems my Vista does not want to play with HT.
Perhaps someone more versed in Putty can explain how your method can be done via your method. Advantage being less unhooking of wires and changing network settings. Either way it is pretty easy now that I have it figured out for my system.
