If you use win7 64bit, I suggest you use VMware and create a virtual machine with xp on it. Other wise, if you use xp mode, that'll work too.

Straight 64 bit will not work.

The Techstream program itself runs fine on 64 bit, it's the DRIVER for the cable that only works on 32 bit. So you must create a virtual XP machine, install the driver there, and bind the USB port to it. Many are doing this successfully over at the Tundra forums.

How do you create a virtual XP machine?

I have no idea, I'm still running 32-bit XP on my machines.

Just got mine today.
it came with the cable and 2 mini CDs.
One has Mongoose Pro + TechStream 7.10.030 and the other CD has TechStream 7.20.041.

I've been playing with it for the last couple of days. One interesting thing I've discovered-The TPMS system is much more elaborate than I'd thought. I was not aware that it was detecting actual Press and Temp in each tire. Kinda nifty.

Any where to just get the chinese software? I already have a few usb to OBD2 cables. I figured I'd ask before paying the $29 for the software and throwing the cable into a box somewhere
