We've recently had a few customers reporting difficulties with using their Windows 10 systems to communicate with their SDA units. This solution aims to guide you through the process of installing the SDA software tool onto your Windows 10 tablet/ PC/ Laptop and getting it to communicate with your device.


The first (and arguably most important) step would be to download and install Windows Mobile device center. 

You can find this by navigating to https://www.microsoft.com and searching for Microsoft Windows Mobile Device Center 6.1 Driver for Windows Vista (64-bit). Alternatively, click this Link. (Please email support@analox.biz if this link doesn't work and we'll update it).


Once downloaded, open the drvupdate-amd64.exe file and follow onscreen prompts
