About

TermNotify is a companian application for UwTerminalX (it can also be used with any other application by editing the ini file) which will alert you to new serial ports being added to the computer and allow you to launch a new UwTerminalX (or other program) instance if needed.

Mac

Download the dmg disk image and mount it, then copy the TermNotify application to the same folder where UwTerminalX is installed. Simple double click TermNotify to run the application and plug in a USB-Serial device or module, then click the notification when it shows to open a new UwTerminalX instance.
