Download fix for Wlink 5.8 setting the data logger to USBExpress mode (no Com)
i.e download to where you have weatherlink installed and then run the CP210x USB to Serial converter file

then the new hardware should be found and setup
then set wlink back to serial mode
then check data ok, i.e get it to find the port number auto…etc…(or check with device manager, ports, to find the allocated com port number)
then close and then set WD to use that port
(or you can still run wlink and WD together if you use virtualVP)

At this time only wlink can use USBExpress mode (which was developed to try and stop the USB lock ups (which it has not))
