  • Install it in your computer. Be sure that you select the right version of your operating system. In my case it defaulted to Mac OS 10.1 - I changed it to the right MacOS version
  • Open it and connect your calculator to it. This connectivity kit also serves to update the calculator firmware, if it is not updated.
