I just got my X4 a few days ago, and I haven't data logged with it yet, but I did have a helluva time trying to get it to communicate with Updater and LiveLink.

I could not get it to hook up at all on my Windows 8 machine. I finally pulled out an old laptop with Vista on it and it was still a royal PITA manually installing the driver before I could get the computer to recognize it.

I finally got it working, and was able to load my custom tunes, and it works great to install one of the custom tunes into the truck.

Apparently the sct x4 is not compatible with live wire, I can get it to see something but it's generic.



Hmmm

No problem installing or running it on Win7 Pro x64.

I've already run 5 different tunes and so far I'm addicted to the 93 Performance custom tune. Addicted so much that I didn't blink an eye on the 2nd fill up of 93 @ $3.99/gal

As for the livewire program I'm going to try and import a data log from the x4 but at this point in time I don't think it will work. Real time won't work period.

You will have to call sct support and they can remotely get into your laptop and get the right update for the x4 to work with livelink on windows 8

Another forum member sent me file with some drivers for Windows8.


I just installed them, and now my Win8 laptop will recognize and communicate with my X4!!


Both the Updater and LiveLink recognize the X4.
