It is only for software upgrade that KANDA sells for 7$. You may need to use another programmer such as PonyProg if you like and don't want to pay.
But be careful with Windows2000 because there is a little problem with serial port due to difference OS architecture design for many softwares that are careless in design. (I think PonyProg fixes this problem)
