Hi Simon,

I don't use a Puck Pro, nor am I usually a Windows user, but I'll try to help 
you get started:

1. the USB link appears to need a driver under Windows. According to the Mares 
website, you should be able to download it here: 
http://computer.mares.com/index.php?/Knowledgebase/Article/View/73/1/cp210x-driver-xp-s2k3-vista-windows-7-8-and-10

2. the Puck Pro needs to be switched into PC mode. With the single button menu 
structure this is non-trivial, especially when not able to see the screen. This 
PDF has all the information, but I'm not sure how well you can parse this with 
a screen reader:

<https://www.scubadoctor.com.au/downloads/computer-manuals/Mares_Puck_Pro.pdf>
From standard surface mode, five button presses should get you to PC mode
In that mode, a download initiated from Subsurface should work.

I hope others with access to such a dive computer can give you more detailed 
information 

All the best

/D
