I've just received my new Tunze pumps and controller and would like to thank George for the great service!

It's nice to get good and fast service - keep up the good work:thumbup:

I don't know if someone have used the 7096 controller with Win 7 64bit yet, but I tried it on my machine and windows couldn't connect to the controller.
It seems like the driver supplied on the cd (website has same version for download) does not work with Win 7 64bit.

If someone has the same issue, they can fix it by following these steps (the controller must be plugged in):
1) download the USB to UART driver from here:
Virtual COM Port Drivers (get the latest 64bit one)
2) Extract to a folder somewhere on pc
3) Go to device manager and look for the "FTD232" device with a "!"
4) Right-click and select "update driver"
5) choose "browse computer for driver software" and point it to folder created in no.2
6) wait for install
7) another icon with "!" will appear in device manager (I think the name is "com port driver" or something similar)
8) follow steps 4 to 6 again

That should do it. The application should now be able to connect to the controller.

Hope this can help someone:)
