yes - i use a $50 windows 8.1 tablet as my digital dashboard and i use a windows 10 laptop for the main tuning device.
both run the haltech esp software perfectly (the tablet a lot slower - but it still runs ok)

Yes it does work. I had a hell of a time getting mine to connect. I kept getting "ECU not found" in the esp software while plugged into the ECU. I downloaded the USB drivers with the Haltech install package and my computer was still saying I didn't have the correct drivers. My old windows XP laptop connected immediately with no issues.

In my case I downloaded the latest VCP driver here... https://ftdichip.com/drivers/vcp-drivers/
The one with 2021-07-15 release date is what finally got my Windows 10 laptop able to connect to the ECU and its been working as it should since.

Hopefully yours just works as intended, but if not I hope this will help
