HIL USB Driver Installation

This section describes the procedure for installing HIL USB Drivers on various Windows operating systems.

Important: Please, be advised that some HIL devices have Ethernet port, but Ethernet connectivity, from the 2013.4 software release, is deprecated and will not be supported any more. The only supported connection is the USB connection.

USB drivers are automatically installed with Typhoon HIL Control Center software version 1.0.7 or later. If you have an older version, please update the software.

During the installation of the Typhoon HIL Control Center software, you may be prompted with a warning message (Windows 7/8/8.1/10, Figure 1). On Windows 7/8/8.1/10 you should click on Install this driver software anyway .

On Windows Vista/7/8/8.1/10 systems, drivers will be automatically installed when you first attach the HIL402/60x, and other user actions won’t be required. During the installation and when the installation finishes, Windows Vista/7 will show a small tool-tip in the lower right corner of the screen (Figure 2 and Figure 3) and Windows 8/8.1/10 will display dialog shown on Figure 4.
