Hello Jeff,
unfortunately I don't have an G6LVB Tracker. But as far as I know, the built 
USB-to-Serial adapter doesn't work on 64-bit Windows systems.

Your friend could try an external  USB-to-Serial adapter and steer the LVB 
Tracker via the serial port. May be there are others but the only 
USB-to-Serial adapter I know that works on 64-bit Vista and Windows 7 is the 
Prolific single port USB-to_Serial adapter. For Vista 64-bit and Windows 7, 
64-bit, you need the latest driver version.  It can be downloaded here:


>From that page download the "PL2303 Prolific Driverinstaller v1210.zip"
