Installing USB Drivers

 FTDI the manufacturer of the FTDI FT232RL USB chip used in KM7 has drivers as well as comprehensive guides to install those drivers in all the applicable Operating Systems.

There is not a lot more I can add about drivers that FTDI don't cover in their USB driver guides except to WARN YOU

You should install the FTDI drivers BEFORE you connect your KM7 to a PC.

Temptation is to just plug it in and Windows knows all about it.

WRONG!

If you let it (Automatically) Windows will install some drivers, but they are old and not the best drivers.

Best to install FTDI DRIVERS FIRST before you plug your KM7 into a PC USB port and then follow the FTDI instructions, DO NOT just blindly say OK to everything Windows suggests.

All you need to install on your PC, MAC or Linux Personal Computer is;
