My bad. The The VINT-TT55502 and bbfly-BF32302 adapters look identical on the outside but looks like they have different circuit boards and chipsets. If you can find out what chipset the VINT-TT55502 has you can do a Google search for its chipset drivers.

I tried searching for drivers for both and came up empty. Surely SOMEONE has to have drivers for these things. There are too many people posting about using them for drivers to not exist.

Do not worry about license expiring. You can go ahead an follow the same procedure to get a new one. The license file will be automatically downloaded with (1) in the name as Windows will not overwrite the old one. (Hope you are using Windows...)

I have had Forscan difficulties finding the cable. Tinkering with the cable type in the settings eventually it was able to find after a few tries. This includes my Toyota Mongoose Pro cable and ELS27 I bought direct from Russia.

Will try researching the specific items you bought now....

Here's a page on troubleshooting, hopefully it works and you can report back. Sounds like the driver for the second one is already installed as well, but somehow ForScan is not finding it. Tinker with the settings, cable type, speed, port...

There is a driver package on that page. I downloaded it just in case it disappears!

That's great. Do you ship to the USA? Doesn't appear so from your site. Thanks!

I don't have the VINT-TT55502 cable but am interested in purchasing it. Here are the official latest drivers (v3.4 2014/2015): http://www.wch.cn/download/CH341SER_EXE.html

That is the official manufacturer site. Good luck and please let us know your results and testing in Forscan.

I'm starting now with this topic and after trying several, the model of icar v2 by bluetooth bought in amazon, connects with my ford focus tdci 1.8 of 2004 and with forscan is giving results.
