This is probably an older adapter from China. I had the same issue and brought the old Chinese II adapters to the scrap. We are using now CAT-ET III for diagnostic purposes.

I have a problem connecting Cat Communication Adapter 3 (317-7485) with Cat Electronic Technician 2014A v1.0 software. When trying to connect with USB or bluetooth, I get error #142: The hardware device is not responding". My pc can see the adapter from device manager, I have "Silicon Laps CP210x USB to UART Bridge (Com3)" there. In adapter there are power and BT leds on. Other leds are off. I have checked that I have the correct adapter selected in Cat Electronic Technician software (Utilities -> Preferences -> Modify -> Communications) -> Catepillar Comm Adapter 3 (RP1210).
I don't currently have any vehicle connected to adapter, but I understood that it is not needed to test the installation? What am I missing here, can you please help?
Any help will be greatly appreciated!
