      Make sure you have all of the programs from the DVTool-dist.zip file
      in one folder. If you move things around, it probably won't work.

      Open a command window (Start->Run->Cmd) and cd to the folder where
      DVTool.jar is located. Then run "ascpseriald COMX 20002" where "X" is
      the com port your dongle is connected as. Then run DVTool.bat and
      click on the remote host checkbox. Try to click on Open and see what

      That's basically what DVTool.jar is doing. It starts the ascpseriald
      program on the com port and IP port. It then connects to it and
      communicates with the dongle, all behind the scenes.

      That's also how you would go about putting the dongle on one computer
      and run DVTool on another.
