005. CT7:  Windows XP and Vista installation

The installation procedure is  simple on Windows XP and Vista systems, however the USB driver shall be installed manually prior to connection of the instrument.

During the setup of CT7 Console  the  ".NET framework"  will be  automatically(*) downloaded from Microsoft and installed .

(*) The PC shall have internet access.


The installation is performed in only two steps:

  • Instal driver:
    • Download from CT7 DOWNLOAD Page the latest version of CT7 USB driver, extract from ZIP and start Setup
    • Power ON the CT7 instrument and connect to USB port of the PC - after few seconds the CT7 device will be available  and COM port created
  • Install CT7-Console:
    • Download from CT7 DOWNLOAD Page the latest version of CT7-Console, extract from ZIP and start Setup 
    • If necessary the .net framework will be downloaded

Do not forget to switch CT7 into PC-Link mode (using navi-switch and menu),   select the Communication port and you may enjoy the connection.


IIf the driver is not correctly installed, or CT7 is not connected to PC  you will most probably get error "No Communication Port Availiable".  

Windows creates dynamically the port when CT7 is connected ( and powered).
