Hi Bob,

The reason for the warning against installing the current Windows drivers is that they depend on newer DeviceMaster firmware to establish a working COM port. To my knowledge it won't harm anything permanently to install those drivers (which also installs the Comtrol Driver Management Console). However, the ideal solution to your situation is to update the firmware of the DeviceMaster unit, as long as the unit is still new enough to run current (SocketServer 11.x and Bootloader 4.x) firmware.

Comtrol offices are currently closed for holiday break (until January 2), but once everyone is back in the office I will be able to track down some more info for you.

In the meantime, if you like you can experiment with the older software to see if you can find the IP address of your DeviceMaster and determine if its serial ports still physically work: http://downloads.comtrol.com/html/Obsolete_DM_drivers_window s.htm
