Read COM, execute batch file

Specs: Windows XP
I am doing a microcontroller project that reads many sensors, and when one is triggered, sends a text message.
On the micro side, the information is sent through RS232, to COM7 on my computer.

On the computer side, I have a PHP file, that, through a remote server, can send email to cell phones.

I need to jump this horrific bridge in between.

Any ideas of how to get between these 2 points, I will greatly entertain.

At this point, I "visualize" a program that reads the COM port, and when a special character is recieved, execute a batch file to log into the server, and execute the php file.


Is there a nifty program out there that can read serial, and perform task?
I see many programs to read serial, is there an efficient way to monitor one of these programs, and when character receieved, is there a way to launch a batch file?
Can I poll from the command prompt for COM, and when something is recieved, just continue in the command prompt to telnet/server?

Any other sweet ideas?

Thanks everyone!,

Just for surfers' info:

solved by a legacy 16 bit application relying upon NTVDM builtin emulator after private messages exchange.
