UPS / PC Connection
 
Hello guys

i have bought a new UPS (Blazer Vista) and im trying to make a connection with my PC (through an application named WinPower)

Altough i connected the UPS to the PC (Via USB) when the application starts it says "searching for device" and it never stops searching

Id like to connect it so i can set it to shutdown my pc before battery is empty

Anyone ever used this application before?

Thanks

xp

what is seem to understand is that it doesnt look like it supports a usb connection. All the options indicate only COM

well you could try and install the drivers first and then plug it in.

cant seem to find any

When i connect the ups to my pc it says hardware found and then installed correctly.

it didnt come with a driver cd? if it didnt and there is none on the website then it does not need any drivers

my guess is that the software does not support usb connection

Are there any universal ups software or can you only use the one they give you
