Not working in XP (as a VM) either. I might be doing something wrong.

upsdrvctl stop

Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.6.4-3534:3579M
Stopping UPS: ups
Sending signal to C:\Program Files\NUT\bin\..\var\run/usbhid-ups-ups.pid
Stopping C:\Program Files\NUT\bin\..\var\run/usbhid-ups-ups.pid
failed: No error [The parameter is incorrect. ]

I get the same message on Win7.

If I run upsdrvctrl start myself, I can upsdrvctl stop then shutdown 
without issues.

upsmon.pid doesn't get removed after stopping the nut service. 
upsd.exe.pid does get removed and it has 'exe' in its filename.
