Migrating to 64-bit Vista, having some issues trying to install the Freestyle USB cable. Haven't tried the other meters yet. Anyone else have hardware issues mating meters to 64-bit Vista? Can anyone report any successes?
The Abbott people were less than helpful about this when I wrote them; they say they don't support 64 bit OSes and they have no plans to. Nice of them to tell us this before we order the cable. Anyway it's possible to make it work
In looking at the INF file, the Abbott USB data cable uses a TI 3410 USB to serial device. I was able to download the 64 bit version of the driver for the 3410 device, and change the VID that was referenced in the INF file to point to the one that Abbott uses. In my case, I edited the lines that say VID_0451 to VID_1A61. Check yours to see if its the same by going to the device manager, select the data cable, and under the details tab select the Hardware IDs.
Anyway, after I did this, the driver install worked fine, and the CoPilot software was able to see the meter and download data from it.
On the Texas Instrument Website. Its a little weird, they want you to sign up to get an account before you download, but search their site for USB 3410. I attached them here as well, I don't know if the moderator will let them stay
After you run the installer, it will place the driver files in C:\Program Files (x86)\Texas Instruments Inc\TUSB3410 Single Driver Installer\DISK1\Windows\tiinst\TUSB3410\Vista64.
Nothing will work if you don;t change the VID as I mentioned in the previous post. But you needed to find where the driver files are to do that change. Then update the driver files through the device manager, and point to that directory (after you made the edit)
