Sanofi BGSTar, which is made by Agamatrix and rebranded, comes with a software compatible only with 32 windows. If you try to install it on a 64bit Windows, the installation rolls back.
I use SIDiary too, (http://www.sidiary.org/) which is a commercial software (20 euro yearly) which can download nearly every diabetic device data, but for BGStar it requires the BGSTar software being installed.
I "discovered" that SIDiary only requires the cable driver, the cable being as usual a USB-RS232 cable using a Silabs chip (link to silabs doc and driver download).
So I downloaded the driver from the link above (click the "tools" tab, file CP210x_VCP_Windows.zip), unzipped and, before running the exe installer, modified the slabvcp.inf file adding the "right" identification strings for the Sanofi cable (which is USB\VID_17F4&PID_AAAA ).
Now on my Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit I can download BGStar readings too, and merge them with my other glucometer brand and sync them online and with my android SIDiary app: that's good.
I attach the modified inf file, just replace the original before running the .exe install and say "OK" when windows recognise the driver is no more a valid signed driver (we changed a file, remember): just say you trust it and all is OK.
PS: the driver exists for linux and OSX too: if you find a software which implements the BGStar /agamatrix protocol you should be able to download on those OSes too.
