Manual for 85093B 3.5 mm ECal module

I have *just about* come into the 21st century, and bought an Agilent N3383A 3-port 9 GHz PNA, which is coming with Agilent 85093B 9 GHz ECal module. I don't have them yet, but with a bit of luck I might on Monday. 

The trouble is, I can't seem to find the manual on the 85093B 3.5 mm ECal module. Going to the Keysight web site for the 85093B ECal module

http://www.keysight.com/en/pd-1000003544%3Aepsg%3Apro-pn-85093B/rf-electronic-calibration-ecal-module-35mm?cc=US&lc=eng

I see under the "Document Library" a manual for the +85097A RF Electronic Calibration (ECal) PC Interface Kit+, but *not* for the 85093B ECal module. The nearest thing I can find to any sort of manual is a technical overview of various ECal modules.

Can anyone suggest a source of a manual for the 85093B 3.5 mm ECal kit? 

On a related topic, I have an HP 8720D with firmware 7.74. From what I can read browsing the web, the 8720D will support the 85093B without the need for any controller. So if I am lucky, this ECal module will work with both VNAs I own. In fact, I see "ECal" on the CAL menu of the 8720D, although trying to select an ECal module, the 8720D reports "ECal module not responding", which is hardly surprising. 

I think to control the 85093B ECal module from the 8720D will require some software on a Windows PC - is that correct?  If so, is there any chance I could get a copy of that software, so I could use the Agilent 85093B ECal on both the Agilent N3383A PNA and the HP 8720D?
