Before taking the USB cable into use, you must install the USB cable driver on your computer. The driver is compatible with Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10.
  1. Make sure that the USB cable is not connected.
  2. Insert the WXT530 USB drive in a USB port in your computer.
  3. Go to the USB-driver folder and run setup.exe.
  4. When Vaisala USB Device Driver Setup Wizard opens, select Next.
  5. In the Select Additional Tasks window, select how you want to assign COM ports to Vaisala devices, and Install.
  6. Select Display Vaisala USB Device Finder > Finish. The driver starts.

    In newer Windows versions, the driver status may show incorrectly. Connect the USB cable to WXT530 and your computer, and open Windows Device Manager. If Vaisala USB Device is listed under Ports (COM & LPT), the driver has been correctly installed and uploaded.

Use the correct port in the settings of your terminal program. Windows recognizes each individual cable as a different device, and reserves a new COM port.

There is no reason to uninstall the driver for normal use. However, if you wish to remove the driver files and all Vaisala USB cable devices, uninstall the entry for Vaisala USB Instrument Driver from the program manager tool in the Windows Control Panel.
