When attempting to connect the KIPR Link to a computer in order to download on program onto it, my computer (running Windows 7) notifies me that the driver software for the Link did not install correctly. This causes the Link (connected via USB) to not be recognized by the computer and not recognized as a target in the KISS IDE, thus preventing me from downloading any programs at all on to the device. I've combed through my files in the KISS Platform folder and found no abnormalities to my knowledge. Is there any fix for this problem?

Hi Emma,

Whittier had this problem as well. I don't know if they ever fixed it properly, but the efficient workaround was to just use a flash drive. If you're feeling adventurous you might also try WiFi downloading.

If you happen to find a proper fix for this, please do let us know!
