Send some of those batteries my way....Seriously, though, as the voice of the manufacturer, UPMan can only recommend the supplied batteries. As an individual (Paul), I have a practically unlimited supply of those batteries so really don't ever have a need to try others.
I am unable to use the VC as well. Doesn't see the scanner (though I can read from and write to it from Sentinel and ARC-Patrol).Hi again Paul.
I did the steps that you told me to do in Device Manager but I still cant use the Virtual Control in ARC-PATROL in Windows 7.
That's the thing, I'm not seeing it in DM on my computer. It doesn't show up, though it will read and write to it. I tried plugging and unplugging and plugging the cable again to see if it would ever show up. Nothing.Did you check the Device Manager to figure out which port the Home Patrol was on and then set Arc Patrol to use that port?
