Downloading UGS Platform
February 24, 2017
A little backstory...
I bought my Surface Pro 4 not quite a year ago. I loved the idea of a tablet/laptop. It is everything I hoped it would be with one exception, I wasn’t prepared to own three brand new Pro 4’s in less than a year. I had my first Surface less than a month when the screen de-laminated from the frame. When took it back to Best Buy they immediately replaced it with a new one. I had to set up my computer for the second time and re-download all the software I use. I wasn’t happy about it but stuff happens.
When Bob first designed the E3 it was made to connect to a computer with serial ports, it was old school. I asked him to modify the design so I could run it off my Surface and its lone USB port. He did and I began learning how to operate my E3. Then a couple weeks ago the lone USB port on my Surface died; not a software glitch a real honest to goodness hardware malfunction. So, I made another trip to Best Buy. All I can say is thank God for extended protection plans. Happily, I went home with Surface number three. Unhappily I had to reinstall all that software again. I’m whining, I know, it’s what I do when I’m forced to do stuff I hate to do.
So, even though I now have my third brand new Surface Pro 4, I went on EBay and bought an HP ProBook for $100.00 which will run my E3 just fine. And Since I had to download GSP, NC Corrector and F-Engrave again I thought I’d walk you through the process of downloading UGS.
