Newest software for your USB Panic Button – Windows 10 compatible

This post from 2008 is by far the most popular post on my blog.
This alternative software for the USB Panic Button from Jam has stopped working in Windows 10 so it is finally time for a new version!
This version uses the HidLibrary from Mike O’Brien on NuGet and this made it very easy…
The software depends on Microsoft .NET framework 4.5 which is enabled by default in Windows 10.

    I have a different USB button that will use a different usb value of the hardware its looking for. Is there a source to this available? or can i give someone the value to hard code into the script? otherwise I have to go have someone script this up for me on this windows 10 machine… thanks.. Mark

    Hey there,
    I just tried the new software for the Panic Button on my Win10 64, but it doesnt work for me. An exception window pops in an unending loop till im prompted to close the program. Hope you can help me, I was so happy you uploaded the new version but now I’m just left with a not working Button again.

    Hello, I think I have a similiar problem to Mark. I have a the Big Red Button from Dream Cheeky, and it isn’t getting recognised by the software. Any suggestions?
