my vista laptop loaded the correct driver without issue. just plug it in and it will do the rest. i was freaking about it too. i origionally did just what i said, then read about all the other stuff i "was supposed to do", freaked out, had to hunt down the driver, and delete it. then i heard from someone else they had no problems, so i just plugged it in and tried again. program opened no problem and connected to the bike without issue.
