About KESS V2 5.017 software:
Kess 5.017 came with Ksuite 2.23 software (a CD), saying Windows XP is the best operation to run on. And i did.
I opened KSuite 2.23 (E:), ran “ksuite_222_v2” exe.
Ran the setup application
Then Next, Next… to install
I accepted Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 License Terms, and setup in English
Then, i can run the software to setup ksuite language
Important!!! replaced all files in C:/Ksuite 2.23 with E:/Ksuite 2.23
Then, i installed software for USB device and checked in Computer management
Here is all i did for kess 5.017 installation.
Then i can use it for ECU tuning.
