I cannot get the Ocean FX to work with OceanView using Windows 7.

In some circumstances, Windows 7 cannot find the USB driver files for Ocean FX spectrometers. One solution for this issue is to copy the driver files to the correct location as detailed below:

  1. If open, close OceanView and connect the Ocean FX USB cable and power cable.
  2. Using Windows Explorer go to the directory Program Files\Ocean Optics\OceanView\offline
  3. Copy two files titled “ooi_oceanfx.cat” and “OOI_OceanFX.inf”
  4. Paste these files to the directory Program Files\Ocean Optics\Oceanview\SystemFiles
  5. Click the Windows button in the lower left corner and type “Device Manager” into the text box. Then select Device Manager from the list of program options.
  6. In Device Manager, click on “Other Devices”
  7. Right click on OceanFX and then choose “Browse my computer for driver software”.
  8. Click the browse button and find the directory \Program Files\Ocean Optics\OceanView\SystemFiles. Once selected, click the Next button.
  9. Click the Install button.
  10. Once installed the success window will appear. Click the Close button.
  11. Open OceanView and it will now recognize the OceanFX.
