Anyway, with 10m/30feet cable I hear extremely loud hiss. With 3m cable its a lot of better.

In the free, cut-down feature products often supplied with proper sound devices, the dongle part isn't needed, but the programme does need the LCC to run properly. It isn't unknown for it to freeze during installation - often virus protection or firewalls can make it misbehave. You can get an updated LCC from steinberg on the net. Cubase LE is a very good free product.
I tried to trun off virus protection and firewall, but it didn't help. I succeeded in installing different version of LCC from the internet, but when I run it, its telling me: "No licenser found".

These ASIO drivers are installed from the begining - I won't help.

This could be the problem, but I really can't find any new cotrol. And there is no information about any new control in user guide.

With Rode NTG2 I can get to -12db sound only with full mic/input volume and I have to speak very loud and in very close distance to the mic. But there is noise about -45db.
