Q: How do I make sure that my computer has everything necessary (software drivers, operating system, framework, Windows service pack) in order to communicate properly with your SCX11 universal motion controllers? I plan to communicate via USB.

A: Please refer to PAGE 6 of the SCX11 startup manual (different than the operating manual):
