Additional Comments

Performed a full install using the file downloaded.  Program installed an runs.

Inserting my license key worked flawlessly.

In the past I have done update installs, they automatically pickup the license key from the prior install.

Only issue was it was not able to find my OBD interface.  The fix is to 

add your user name to the "dialout" group...then re-login.

NO special device drivers are required for the OBDLinkEX.  The Linux native driver seems to work perfectly.
