Only Windows® operating systems are supported by the driver of the USB service cable.

  1. Connect the USB service cable to a USB port on your computer. Windows® detects the new device and installs the appropriate driver.
  2. Open Devices and Printers from the Windows® Start menu. Use search to find it if necessary (search for "devices").
  3. Locate the cable in the list of devices:
    • If the device is listed as Vaisala USB Device with a COM port number in brackets, the cable is ready for use. Note the COM port number, you will need it later.
    • If the device is listed as Vaisala USB Instrument Cable without a COM port number listed, you must install the driver manually.
  4. To install the driver manually:
    1. Disconnect the USB service cable from the computer.
    2. Download the Vaisala USB driver at http://www.vaisala.com/software (select the appropriate USB Instrument Driver Setup for your cable).
    3. Run the USB driver installation program Vaisala USB Device Driver Setup.exe. Accept the installation defaults.
    4. Go back to 1 and verify that the driver installation works as expected.
