Before reporting it, please make sure you have the latest version and check the known issues (see the link next to the Download buttons). There you may find a workaround.


CDC/VCOM driver Windows 7 & 8

v6.99.03 | 04 March 2016

When do you need this driver?

Usually, you don’t need to install any drivers – the required drivers for all host interfaces come with the operationg system.
For virtual COM port, the following exceptions apply:

  • ID-engine Z: On Windows 7 and 8, you need the driver v6.99.03 offered here.
  • ID-engine SD/PAD (legacy products): On any Windows version, you need this legacy driver.

If the reader isn’t recognized despite the necessary drivers, it’s usually because the reader isn’t yet configured for your host interface. Learn how to create a configuration


v3.18.00 | 12 October 2023
Changelog & Known issues

Tip: Also install our ToolSuite – it’s great for testing.
Semantic versioning
The SDK uses semantic versioning, i.e. the version number is composed as follows: MAJOR.MINOR.PATCH

  • MAJOR: New features that cause breaking changes
  • MINOR: New features that are fully backwards compatible.
  • PATCH: Bug fixes only

This versioning only refers to the dynamic library BRP Lib. The reason is that most features and bugfixes are added there. The static ibrary BALTECH API is an auto-generated wrapper, where changes are less frequent. However, we don’t fully rule out breaking changes even in a minor version.

To avoid adjustments in productive applications when API breaking changes occur, you can update BRP Lib individually and continue to use your current version of the statically linked API.
