USB Problems with a ESXi6.0 Windows 2008 R2 Virtual Machine

  I purchased your 02064C professional weather center. Can you give me advice on how to fix a USB connectivity problem with a ESXi6.0 virtual Windows 2008 R2 computer. I can see the device as a "Chaney Instrument" in the virtual machine's properties via vsphere but your software does not see the device. I installed your software on a non virtualized machine with no problems.
    Have you ever tried installing  your software on a virtualized machine using USB passthrough?

           Thanks, Mark

Hi Mark,

We do not recommend using a virtualized machine for our products, if you have had success in the past with a regular computer, then that is probably where the problem is. We would recommend switching back to the non virtualized machine. Please let us know if there is anything else we can help you with. Thank you. Have a good day!
