Parsing Identifiers

The Device Monitoring Studio uses the usb.ids file, kindly provided by Vojtech Pavlik and Stephen J. Gowdy, to properly parse numeric identifiers into human-readable string values.

The file is installed into the product installation folder and is automatically scanned on startup. The mentioned file is frequently updated on-line. Please visit the link from time to time to download the most recent version.
