Windows 7: Is APC PowerChute necessary with Win7?

08 Oct 2014   #51

Windows 7 64bit Professional

Hi Guy's
I got a solution from the APC forum which solved my problem.
I have copied the short reply from there below if anyone is interested.

[ You need to install PowerChute Business Edition part number SFPBCE911 Software / Firmware

The other option you have is to install apcupsd | A daemon for controlling APC UPSes and configure that application for Serial Comm. ]

I only loaded the first option, it worked a treat, you get a nice web page to do the config on.

thanks again.

To each his own at the time i worked for EDS they were in charge of General Motors Communications and these were software engineers say this. I really do not need a piece of software to tell me that the lights are out.

I just needed to have some software that would close a server down, that was 30miles away, without crashing everything and giving me more work re-building it.

I have that now and it works very well.
