2. Open Device Manager (Start Menu -> Device Manager)
3. Locate "ANT USB-m Stick" under "Other devices"
4. Update the driver
a. Right click "ANT USB-m Stick"
b. Select “Update driver”
c. Select "Browse my computer for drivers"
d. Browse to where the unzipped driver folder is located
e. Click "Next"
