Both of the update procedures will work on Windows 10.
The trick is to convince Windows that you know what you are doing and that you really want to connect the KID to your PC THEN that you really want to send a file.

The Windows 10 installer is supposed to make Windows behave.

I have had the best results when I have the installer running on the PC, the KID in download mode THEN hook up the USB cable. If you have the cable hooked up to the KID and PC before you start the installer bad things happen.

Kyle I have  a W7 , now back on site with W 7 laptop...The W10 is a desktop at home.  I will try your order of connections in the AM.


My second issue is I need guidance as to where the best location for the Negatives is in your opinion.?

thanks,
Eric

You can still get free upgrade to Windows 10 from 7 for free  if you want to - if your laptop hardware will support it.

Larry I would not be able to do that,I believe, as it has   multi language set up and It drives  me nuts as you-have to  check every word ... I had to type most of this twice...

Kyle I just remember that The Negatives I am referring to are the the ones on page in the KID Installation  Manual on page 44/45 in the IMPORTANT MESSAGE  on the left side of the page.

PV negative must go directly to the Kid, It can not be common as the current sense is on PV negative. If they are common the kid will not charge
