If you think the problem may be related to com port access,
try installing a fixed version of com.sys (the OS/2 com port
device driver), as follows:
1. FTP to ftp.ibm.net
2. user anonymous
3. cd pub/warpcom
4. get readme.wrp
7. get com.sys
9. Copy com.sys to d:\os2\ (or wherever the old com.sys is)
10. Shutdown and reboot and then try CT

If you are experiencing this problem, download the accompanying
com.sys file, and put it in your \os2\boot subdirectory. Then
reboot. This com.sys driver must only be used with OS/2 Warp.
