[time-nuts] Prologix GPIB-USB Controller firmware update-version4.60

Prologix.exe should work in Vista, if you can get past the inevitable
nagging.  I'd like to hear if otherwise.  You don't need Hyperterm for most
things if you use prologix.exe.

For re-flashing the firmware, though, you will need a real terminal program.
Prologix.exe will communicate with the board behind your back and cause
problems with the boot loader.

> Then open "Setup" | "Serial Port" and pick the port you want to use.
> Rest of the update instructions remain the same.
> By default, TeraTerm Pro shows only COM1-4. If your USB serial port is

> For example:
> MaxComPort=16
