I am getting the same result as BionicBlitz. I only have the iPhone app and bluetooth dongle to configure it. Do I need to try get hold of a windows laptop? Anyone know if the windows exe will work on windows 7 OS and does anyone have the right usb drivers for it ? I have been able to use the high brake setting, but cannot get the variable to work ( 2nd throttle plugged into it ).

Usd drivers might work or might not work with win7.
Exe will work on win7.
Drivers are available on net. If you don't find I can share usd drivers from my disk.
Just try it.

Thanks for the advice and the link. I have downloaded the contents of that drive so you can remove link now, cheers. I had to do that on my mac and I will try, when I get the chance, to transfer contents with a thumb drive to the win7 bootcamp install on my old macbook pro which is not on the net. I did manage to get a version of Sabvoton exe loaded on that but when I tried the usb drivers from QS motors links, it told me it failed. I haven't however tried yet to connect that to the motor controller. I will get to that and try again with your files. Big thanks for your link, even if it doesn't work, its very much appreciated. Cheers.

getting the driver to work is a bit of a pain. for me it took lotsssss of messing around. i think in the end what got it working for me is (on Windows 10) go to "device manager" ---> coms and L... something ---> find the device that pops up when yiu plug the sabvoton cable into the pc (the bigger end of the cord goes into the computer) then right click and go to drivers and "search for online update"

if you cant get the decice to show up under "COMS and L.. whatever it is" and insteac it pops up under usb decices with a caution sign for me the soloution was to disable windows 10 virus protection theres two things you have to disable to do so and it turns back on when you power off your computer... if none of that works try running it as administrator or try a different installer.

and im sure youll have issues with getting the controller to connect to the pc even after you get that to work. its a bit of a pain

there should be be no issues once get get usb driver and app installed.
It is a pc porn. Sound complicated and i know you not alone encountering such things.
Some just can't make app to get installed on pc no matter windows version.

Finally I have been able to activate the variable regen braking on my SVMC048150 (haven't tried yet with my 72150, I don't need that much speed on my very low cruiser frame,as yet still an unfinished build project and can't get over a speed bump, check the pic :lol: ). Big thank you to minde28383 for his files access. Turns out I think my original install of usb drivers on my Bootcamp Win7 OS did work........ but it helps if you get the controllers usb cable plugged into the computer the RIGHT way around.... doh! :oops: As soon as I turned it around, the drivers finished their install and then it was just playing with the communication ports in the controller program till I found the one that works.
However my original install of that controller program did not give me the options required to activate that variable regen and it was minde28383's copy of that program that worked for me (thanks mate). As a bonus I now also, have been able to activate the motor temp sensor, and even more amazingly, I now get temp readouts for the motor on the MQCON iPhone bluetooth app, wahoo! So that's an unexpected bonus. Again, thank you to all for their input here.
