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 <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 <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
