Are you sure that you have the proper software???
You can download it from Microtechs homepage...
And if you have it, just press F1 or F2 to connect it to the ECU!

ARe you using Windows XP? If so and you're using a USB to serial adapter, you'll need to make sure your USB adapter is set to Com 1 or 2. They default as Com4 generally.

just go to the device manager and look for your USB to serial adapter.... probably will be in the USB section near the bottom. Go into it's properties and change the setting in there... sorry I don't have my laptop in front of me right now so I can't give better details
