I.a - Manual Installation USB OBD2 Device  

http://bit.ly/OHP-USB-Device-Driver-Installation

Normally, the Windows computer will automatically recognize or update the drivers needed for the device as soon as you plug it in on the USB port. But sometimes there are issues on Windows not automatically updating the drivers. If this happens, you will need to manually update the drivers by following these steps: 

1. Download the device drivers to your computer from:  https://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/VCP.htm

Select the latest Windows release. Choose between 64-bit or 32-bit, depending on the version of your Windows operating system. Most computers running the latest Windows 10 versions are 64-bit.   

Direct link: https://www.ftdichip.com/Drivers/CDM/CDM21228_Setup.zip

2. You will be downloading a self-extracting archive file. When launched, it will extract an installer file to a specified folder but it DOES NOT install the device drivers yet. 

3. Navigate to target folder and launch CDM21228_Setup.exe to install device drivers.

4. Click through, all default values are fine.

 5. Plug the device into the USB port and Windows will take over the rest of the setup process. The set up process will install two new devices in your computer: the USB Serial Port and the USB Serial Converter.

Now all device drivers are set up and good to go.

 6. Run FORScan and setup the FORScan recommended connection settings:
