I am Unable to Run the WE7000 Control Software After Installing and Connecting the Control Software to the PC

If you are using serial communication or ethernet to connect the WE7000 Control Software to the PC, it is necessary to create a shortcut with a start option added to the end of the shortcut target. For WE control software V3.1.2 and later, a shortcut is created automatically after installation. For instructions on setting the start option, please see section 3.2 "Installing the WE7000 Control Software" in the WE7000 User's Manual IM707001-01E.
