Intermatic MultiWave 3.3 Upgrade Instructions
« on: April 02, 2014, 04:50:31 pm »
You can install firmware using a Win7 x64 computer. I chose to use VMWare Player (free) and to download Microsoft's Windows XP for browser testing package.

1. Download VMWare Player (go to VMWare.com and create an account, then download the free VMWare Player application)
2. Download Windows XP Browser Test virtual machine from here (http://www.modern.ie/en-us/virtualization-tools??? Modern.ie? Really?
3. Import your shiny new XP virtual machine into the VMWare Player.
4. Modify the properties of the XP virtual machine to include a new VMWare USB Controller. Once your XP virtual machine is running, VMWare will detect a newly plugged in HID-device (no, I do not have a stutter.
5. Start your shiny new XP virtual machine + USB Controller
6. Install your Intermatic upgrade software. Follow the instructions to upgrade the firmware.

Notes:
* The upgrade process takes a few minutes to complete.
* Reset everything, exclude all devices, then re-include the PE653 and PE953 together.
* You'll then see both devices in the Intermatic firmware upgrade program.
* The upgrade process takes a few minutes to complete. (seriously)
* Also, I didn't have to "keep awake" the PE953 controller during the upgrade process despite the warning to keep it awake.
