Installation

Download and run the MLAutoPatchHY_Setup.exe file on the primary MLServer3 PC that is attached to the AutoPath serial connection.

Restart MLServer3 and right click on the MLAutoPatchHY in the Plugins Window and click Settings.

Configure the plugin to the comport that the AutoPatch is plugged into. Recommended is to use the motherboard's serial connection initially until the communication is proven. Then, you can move the serial port to a USB to serial or PCI to serial adapter (if needed).
