If you try and run the DigiIPLIl.exe application on Windows for reprogramming, and it will not start with an get an error involving "Side-By-Side" issues, you need to install the software libraries it depends on for access to the USB and video display. From microsoft, this is the mfc90 redistributable, which can be found at https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=26368. Run this to add this classic windows library.
