Introduction
The WaveVision 5 Software relies on a USB hardware driver to communicate with the WaveVision 5 Data
Capture Board via the USB connection. Earlier versions of the Software (versions 5.0.6.344 and before) use
a Cypress Semiconductor –based driver that is not compatible with Windows 7. To ensure compatibility with
Windows 7, newer versions of the WaveVision 5 Software now communicate with hardware using the
Microsoft WinUSB driver. All computers that are used with the newer versions of the WaveVision 5 Software
must have their hardware driver updated. The following sections will assist with the driver update or
installation.
2.
Updating a Windows XP or Vista PC with a Previous WaveVision 5 Installation
WaveVision 5 Software versions 5.0.6.344 and prior use a USB software driver that is incompatible with
newer versions of the software. PCs running Windows XP or Vista with older WaveVision 5 installations
(versions 5.0.6.344 and prior) must have the driver uninstalled before the new driver can be installed. Please
follow these steps to uninstall the old driver. Once the old driver is uninstalled, the new driver can be
installed.
Note: Once the old driver is uninstalled, installations of WaveVision 5 versions 5.0.6.344 and prior will no
longer properly identify hardware.
Note: These steps are specific to the Windows XP operating system but are similar in Windows Vista.

Capture board and connect the board to the
PC running Windows XP using the supplied
USB cable. The PC may indicate that device is
not recognized.
3. After the Data Capture board is connected, the
computer should recognize that a USB device
has been connected and automatically start
the Found New Hardware Wizard. If the
wizard does not automatically start, then open
the Device Manager by right-clicking ‘My
Computer’ and selecting ‘Properties.’ From the
Properties screen, select the Hardware tab
and open the Device Manager as shown in

7. When prompted to select the device driver to
install, press the ‘Have Disk’ button
NOTE: If ‘Have Disk’ is not selected or the
driver is installed by another method, then the
WinUSB Co-installer must be specified at a
point in the driver installation. The co-installer
is located in a subfolder of the \driver folder,
depending on the PC specific hardware.
Figure 12: Select ‘Have Disk’
8. Browse to the \driver folder in the WaveVision
5 installation directory and select the .inf file in
the \driver folder as shown in Figure 13.
Continue with the installation of this driver.
Figure 13: Select .inf file in \driver folder
9. After installation is confirmed, verify that the
driver is correctly installed using the Device
Manager. The device should be register under
