Default 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

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

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
