How to install the INF driver for OpenTracker USB and Tracker3 devices. This procedure should work on both 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems, and works with Windows 7.

  1. Plug in the OpenTracker USB and open Device Manager.
  2. Under "Other devices" there will be an "Unknown device." Right-click the "Unknown device" and select Properties to ensure this is the correct device (VID 134A, PID 9000). Close the Properties dialog.

  6. Refresh the Device Manager to show the newly installed Tracker. The COM port can be changed by right-clicking the Tracker, clicking Properties, selecting the Port Settings tab, clicking the Advanced button, and choosing the COM port from the drop-down list. You can reassign any COM port to your Tracker.
