KDS confirmed running on Windows 7 or Windows 10
« on: April 09, 2016, 07:42:10 pm »
For those of you with a KDS  or considering one, I can confirm that KDS Version 3.0.9.4 will work with both Windows 7  and Windows 10.   I have successfully installed and communicated with My 2011 C14 using both operating systems on two different Lenovo Laptops.   :great:

The Disc is Labeled Version 3.0.9.4
and the software splashscreen shows :

KDS3 Program      Version 3.1.0.0(x64)
KDS3 Database       Version 3.0.9.4(EN)


I would assume newer versions of the software exist, and should also work, but I don't have access to anything newer.

Has anyone used the 57001-1725 part number KDS3 yet?

When you buya KDS unit, and software, do you not pay for the forward movement in technology, for the corporate requirement to supply the correct updates?
I'm curious, I can't believe they charge every dealership with one, to update, based on operating systems...
That wouldnseem a bit counterproductive in my mind...

Just curious.... I'm sure with the registration of the unit online, upgrades to software are provided...

I've run into an interesting problem.

I have two laptops, both running Windows 7 -64 bit.

I installed the KDS software on one, and when I plug in the KDS adapter, it says "device driver did not install properly".  I've uninstalled both the driver and KDS software as well as the MS sql server software and reinstalled multiple times with the same result.  When I look at device manager, it shows up as "unknown device". So I gave up on that laptop and thought I'd try it on another laptop.

When I installed it on the second laptop, it works just fine, and communicates to the KDS interface box and I can connect it to the bike and everything works flawlessly. Same operating system, just different brand of machine.

Has anyone else had issues with the device driver not working correctly, preventing communication to the KDS interface box?

I've downloaded this but have not yet tried it.  Norton's said it was safe.  I have a KDS system for my 2009 C14 but I've not yet tried to use it.

That is simply a utility that goes out on the internet and searches for updated drivers. It won't work with the KDS3 drivers.

Recovered from backup and reinstalled, works good now on both laptops. Not sure what went wrong the first time.

My suspicion is improper USB device enumeration during the install and the OS could not open up communications with the device hardware.

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

I'll  confirm your last statement.  I have  v3.1.4 running on Win 10 x64.  Says it's also compatible with Windows 7 and  8.
