Installing UpLink on a PC

UpLink 2.3 is the software that allows you to connect a Windows or Mac computer to an E-Stim Systems 2B via the Digital Link Interface and then update the Firmware on the 2B. If you are just looking to control your 2B, then you do not need to install UpLink. Uplink is only available as part of the 2B Digital Link Interface.
