This isn't a direct answer to your question. But.... when I hear Windows + basic UPS status information the easy answer is often to use the built-in Windows battery monitoring. Of course, a prerequisite is the UPS being HID-PDC compliant & connected via USB to the machine. If that applies,

WMI & the Win32_Battery class might help:

It won't be as detailed as Network UPS Tools, but depending on what you need it might help.

Thank you,
