As contemporary computers do not have a serial interface anymore we include a USB adapter cable. Since Windows Vista and Windows 7, cables that support USB 2.0 and are provided with a FTDI chip are required.
The previous cables, available until the end of 2009, will not work with these operating systems due to their modified inner structures by Windows. If your LokProgrammer has been in use for a considerable time and you intend to switch to Windows 7, you will need a new USB cable.
The USB cable can be ordered at your ESU retailers shop, art. no. 51952.
