Very good, thank you.

That's what I thought, but I get this:

  Can't claim USB device [051d:0003]: libusb0-dll:err [claim_interface] could not
  claim interface 0, win error: The requested resource is in use.

  Driver failed to start (exit status=1)

I don't know why it thinks I'm trying to start the driver.

That's what I was hoping for. Thank you for the helpful diagram.

I also am not able to get the script specified in NOTIFYCMD to run when NOTIFYFLAG ONBATT EXEC is encountered. At this point, being pressed for time, it looks like I'm going to have to settle for writing a Windows Service that polls the output of [upsc ups at localhost ups.status] and responds accordingly. That should get me by for now.
