The PC interface has been rewritten in the QT framefork so it can be multiplatform. This is the FIRST RELEASE of the software, meaning that it may have many bugs. Please report bugs in the forums.
This application is open source, so everyone is encouraged to improve it. Binaries for LINUX and MAC will be created soon.
For Windows, you will need to install the WinUSB drivers using the ZADIG tool.
For reference, here is the old .NET application:
You will need the latest .NET framework from Microsoft to be able to execute the program. Notice that there is a different driver for Windows XP.
Old Xprotolab hardware version 1.4 and 1.5 don't have USB, so you need the UART to USB cable for connection to the PC.

For USB connectivity, you will need:
- USB capable device, such as the Xminilab HW 2.0, or Xprotolab HW 1.7.
- Update the the device with the latest firmware.
- Connect the USB device and install the USB Driver. I currently don't have a digital signature from a certificate authority, so you will get a big red warning when installing the driver. Trust me, the driver is just WINUSB with my own .inf file.
This application is open source, so that anyone can port it to another OS, or perhaps just use the source for a similar project.
Thanks to Murray Lindeblom for his contribution on the WINUSB drivers.
Thanks to Scott McCain for his contribution for a modern UI remake of the .NET application.
