Windows XP
Windows XP has a built-in iBOT driver. Windows XP will automatically install the built-in iBOT driver. The Windows XP iBot driver has a very limited set of features. We highly recommend you refer to "Installing the Orange Micro iBOT driver in Windows XP" section of the iBOT Manual.pdf , Chapter 3. Here you will find step by step instructions on updating the Microsoft Windows XP built-in iBOT driver to the new Orange Micro iBOT v3.0 driver
