Getting data out of my TCR705

Hi everyone from the newest newbie,

Has anyone out there tried to use the built-in routine "Download Data to PC" ?

Reason for asking is that my only working copy of Geo Office Tools is on a Windows 7 machine which has a corrupted operating system.  I set up a new disc and made a clean install of Windows 7 which works fine, but I am unable to get Geo Office to work on it - I've also tried installing it on two other machines with Windows XP, without success.

A long time ago I built a total station by adding a Disto to the top of a digital theodolite, and wrote a program on a Psion to collect the data from both instruments, so I have experience of communicating with a Leica machine over an RS232 link.  Leica were very helpful with the protocols for connecting to the Disto, but have been totally silent when asked for help with the same for the TCR705.

So, over to you.  Any help gratefully received.
