My current Citect installation is using COMXI Digiboards and I would like to upgrade to Windows 95. I want to continue to use the 16 bit version of Citect but will upgrade later. I know that the COMXI is a discontinued board and Digi do not have a driver for it for Windows 95. What can I do? 

There is a Citect driver for the COMXI board shipped in Citect V3.40, V4.20 and V5.00. This driver does not require any Digi driver installed in the computer, if there is a driver installed it should be removed.

This driver is not documented and has not been fully tested. For the purposes of this article the driver has been tested with the LOOPBACK protocol in V3.40, V4.20 and V5.00 and there were no problems. See Q1684 for info on the LOOPBACK test. See Q1651 (configuration detail is identical as for 16 bit, the files may be different) for info on setting up the COMXI driver.
