With some installations (typically with heavy Windows/IT restrictions), probe data retrieval may be problematic. If you are experiencing these types of issues, running the Device Center application as an administrator can often be a solution.
- Navigate to the folder: “C:\Program Files\FARO Technologies\Device Center\Device Manager”
- Locate the application “FARO.DeviceCenter.exe”. Right click on the filename and chose Properties.
- On the Compatibility tab, check the “Run this program as an administrator” box.
- Click Apply and then OK.
