You always have a footing in EasySoft driver, but if you'd like have
one without deployment cost, try the last XTG driver (it may work
for you). If XTG doesn't work for you as is, try to contact his
developer about current situation and how it could be solved to your
satisfaction (maybe he is very close to final solution). If you're
willing to invest something to have a driver without licence fee, then
better. Maybe we would be able to arrange a public bidding to
disperse the cost. Let me know, if you're interested to try this
solution and I'll mediate it with XTG (we're both in same city).
