I have a Multi-Threaded MFC App that uses the Win32 API for serial port
communication. The App uses Overlapped I/O In the WriteFile( )and
ReadFile( ) API calls.

The Problem I have is, one of the Modems I'm using gets an "Error 995" on a
ReadFile() during communication.
This is a Microsoft System Error that say's "The I/O operation has been
aborted because of either a thread exit or application request."

None of the threads exit so I'm not sure if this is a heap problem or
something else.

Can anyone help?

Thanks Todd

May be you are hit by a communication time out. See SetCommTimeouts()

Maybe few threads try to open the same port ?

Changing the timeout values did fix one of my problems. But I'm still
getting "Error 995".

Thanks Todd

Changing the Comm Time Outs as you suggest just fixed this problem for me.
Thanks a lot!
