After running the Plugwise Source on a physical XP machine for some time, i have finally got it working on a (Hyper-V) VM. Problem was getting the Plug accessible inside a VM.
First exercise with the Hyper-V VM and Belkin were not very promising; i didn't even get a simple USB stick working.
Second exercise, Belkin with Plugwise Plug on a VM wasn't successful either; so i installed the Source on a physical XP machine and sold the Belkin.
This week i got some new information that made me confident i would get the Belkin working inside a VM, so i bought a 2nd one.
And yes, it's working now
The problem was that when a new VM is created, the setup process will not see any USB hardware, resulting in a incomplete USB driver installation on the VM.
This is very easy to solve: http://www.digi.com/support/kbase/kbase ... sp?id=1051
After copying the usbd.sys to my XP VM, all worked fine.
