    No! As @lapoltba reminded me, I completely forgot about that aspect. Sorry.

    Sorry, didn't realize I was making a big fuss?

    Yes there are more invisible means, I agree.

    I hope at some point the OV team has the bandwidth to implement those, that's all.

    Was, OP had trouble with the manufacturer and sent out refunds or offers to refund on the pre-paid until the issue is resolved.

    I'd say yes? I'm not saying to not wish for more, but understand that there are costs associated. Also, older OVT folks are still (stuck?) using the dongle for security. There was no free upgrade (downgrade?) when the new licensing system rolled out.

    RE: laptops

    I won't go the super-cheap option that is dedicated ONLY to the tune.

    Even if it's just a small one to keep in the truck, I'm sure i'll end up using it for far more than just tuning.
    So I'm thinking minimum 8gb ram, and decent amount of space.

    Costco has some really good options under 500 bucks, so I'll probably go that route.

    That's the thing I am looking for ONLY using it for the tune. I do not want to spend more than $200 for it. Any ideas on that would be ideal.

    I use Macs for EVERYTHING else.

    I got this off Amazon for $189.00. It works just fine as a dedicated tuning laptop.

    In the same camp. This is probably an obvious statement, but I'd check Craigslist. I ended up finding an older Acer Iconia Tab for $25. By all accounts its a garbage device but it runs Win7 and runs the OVtune kit just fine.

    Craigslist in my area has a bunch of decent Lenovo T### options under 200 bucks, but buyer beware of course.

    I wouldn't want to keep windows current with 2gb of ram.

    Cheapest options I can find on Amazon here:
    https://smile.amazon.com/ASUS-Ultra...ows+10+laptop&qid=1561050656&s=gateway&sr=8-7
    https://smile.amazon.com/CHUWI-Hero...ows+10+laptop&qid=1561050656&s=gateway&sr=8-8

    But to run windows for longer than 4-5 years, I wouldn't recommend those.

    No, but I am dongless in my tuning so I only need the one USB. It looks like that exact laptop isn't listed at the moment, but if you stick with those specs, you can find a comparably priced unit.

    Don't know if VMware works any better, but I couldn't get the Tactrix to pass through from the local machine USB through Virtual Box or whatever the builtin Windows one is. Also tried it on a virtual desktop hosted on Unraid. No go either. I'm no expert, but I thought it should be simple. I think only standard USB devices pass through where the Tactrix cable is odd and does not work with native drivers. Or that is my theory.

    Virtual box sucks. That’s your problem.

    PCMFlash is for those that have a dongle kit, also those features haven't been implemented in PCMFlash yet, only P5flash as of now have it. Those of us with dongle kits still have to use techstream to clear learned values.
