Normal TIS2000 software that comes with it requires?an individual USB security dongle, (most dongle in the kit is useless).Go figure. TIS2000 is COM yet the security is USB. This REALLY screws up things sometimes.If you do need the dongle and don’t have one, it will come with error E666.
Look at USB security dongle:
For GM Opel tis2000: use D630 computer, you can insert the USB dongle to use or use the patch to crack.
For Saab TIS2000: usually use IBM T30, for other computer you may get error message, need to insert the USB dongle, can’t use the patch to crack.
