Which PowerChute verson for a SMT2200-connected stand-alone workstation?

For a single stand-alone (non-domain) workstation using a SMT2200 UPS and Windows 10 (64 bit), which is the appropriate version of PowerChute?  Searching APC website support for SMT2200 > Software/Firmware Download, the search returns PowerChute Business Edition v9.5 (32-bit systems only) (SFPCBE95).  However, there are newer versions of PowerChute Business Edition, and for 64 bit systems, for example v10.0.2 64-bit (SFPCBE1002).  Is there some reason that the support search is returning only the v9.5 32-bit SFPCBE95 version?

 

Whatever version of PowerChute, the management interface must be running on the UPS-connected workstation itself.  It cannot be just an agent with no management interface.  Older versions of PowerChute Business Edition had a console interface that enabled a stand-alone workstation to manage the UPS.  I don't know if the current version of PowerChute Business Edition has that capability anymore.  It appears to be just an agent, requiring some other separate management console interface located on the network.  So what is the PowerChute solution for a SMT-2200 connected workstation that is not on a network?

You have a 64bit system, so connect the PC to the UPS using the supplied USB cable. Then you would install PowerChute Business Edition 10.0.2. The PowerChute Agent is a web based application. To access the Agent, open your favorite web browser, enter https://localhost:6547. Select proceed when asked and then log into the Agent.
