Recently re-installed PG3,after a full system clear out but now unable to download from PT350 to Laptop via supplied usb/serial cable.
Laptop shows the port with a warning triangle - message says that Windows doesn't recognise the driver. Windows checked driver, yet says its the latest.

Unable to create any Reports.
Any ideas?
Can I download via Bluetooth?

Cheers

Mart

Thank you for your enquiry

Regarding downloading a PT350 into PATGuard 3:

Please see the following link for the download help guide:

However, if are using our RS232 to USB adaptor (see picture in link above) you will need to ensure the driver is installed correctly:

Thanks.
Did manage to download using BT, as I get security alerts about the driver.
