I'm regulary using my custom WS8610 software since one year, and it
works very well.
It runs on win7 x64, on a pc with real serial port.
Features include: dump memory, show arbitrary portions of memory, write
memory, a windows service which downloads records and save them in
sqlite format every x hours, plot of temperature and humidity data,
detection of daylight saving time, and more...
See screenshot in files section: WS8610Software.png
If ayone interested I can give source code in C#.
