KESS V5.017 comes with USB dongle, you must insert the dongle read cd software. When you install KESS software, it might get error in windows “do not find the driver” take usb dongle off and close it again. This is caused by Windows system.

NO need connect USB dongle all the time,only when you install the software you need connect,after installation,you can take if off,the kess can work alone.
