         Added additional information to *.cax -> *.cax8 conversion process to help pinpoint conversion issues in the original *.cax file.

Beta 48-4

         When an AutoCal configured to self-sign reads either an E54 (LB7) or an E60 (LLY) controller, the tune file is now self-signed with the correct serial numbers.

         The "Clear DTCs" procedure at the end of the read/flash operation has been updated.

         Save/Save As are now enabled by default in the [F6: Devices] tab page after reading the device settings from a FlashScan or AutoCal device.

         Replaced USBView.exe utility with the more comprehensive USBTreeView.exe in the Drivers\Utilities folder.

Beta 48-2

         TCM licensing is now free for both V2 and V3 devices.

         FlashScan/AutoCal V3 VIN license slot count has been increased from 221 to 600.

         V3 devices can be configured to appear as a USB thumb drive in Windows Explorer, allowing file transfers and management to be performed without installing the EFILive software.

         Tune file editor is available for selected controllers and operating systems:

         Tune file comparison between different operating systems.

         Scan and tune file linking is now supported.

         V3 devices support black box data logging without upgrading to CSP5.

         Custom, user defined menu systems can be created for V3 devices.

         The EFILive EULA is displayed and must be accepted each time a V3 device is powered on before it can be used in standalone mode.

         AutoCal's linked/unlinked status is displayed at the bottom of the EULA screen.

         Transferring files to/from V3 devices is up to 10 times faster than V2 devices.

         And many more...

Bug Fixes:

Beta 48-7

         Fixed pass-thu data logging not starting for some VPW based controllers.

         Send clear DTC commands to all controllers on the CAN bus, not just emissions related controllers at end of read/flash process.

Beta 48-6

         Fixed EDA data logging that showed an incorrect value for main injection pulse time when both pilot1 and pilot2 pulse times were non-zero.

         OS numbers with more than 8 digits are no longer truncated to 8 digits when stored as meta data in data log files.

         When using BBR to read E83A or E83B controllers, the steam name "E83A" or "E83B" is now correctly stored in the *.ctz file's meta data.

         Using F10 and F11 to make the charts or gauges full-screen, no longer drags the main V8 window to the foreground.

         Curve fitting popup editor window no longer drags main V8 window to the foreground.

         Fixed E54(LB7) and E60(LLY) DSP5 tune selection PID. It now correctly displays the selected DSP5 tune instead of the DSP switch voltage.

         Serial wide band PID data is now logged from V3 devices correctly during pass-thru logging.

         *.cax -> *.cax8 conversions now correctly handle bit fields.

         Right-click "More Info" option for PIDs showed "Unspecified error" on second and subsequent invocations.

Beta 48-3

         Updated OBD error codes and messages in the $0300..$03FF range.

Beta 48-2

         Fixed CMC checksum issue.

         E54 (LB7) and E60 (LLY) serial numbers are now shown in the [F4: OBD] window.

         CMF VIN change is now supported in [F4: OBD]->[VIN Change].

         Disabled hotkeys for editing tune files when no tune file is open and/or when no *.cam file is present for the open tune file.

         Additional USB message management to mitigate the $0101 error that may occur on some USB configurations.

         Tune files from A40 controllers that identify as "A46" can now be opened the V8 software.

         Selecting the "Next Scan/Tune Window" (hotkey Alt+F2 and Alt+F3) would cause the next window to be restored to its un-maximized size if it had been previously maximized.

Known Issues:

         When logging DMA PIDs (i.e. PIDs whose names end with "_M" or "_DMA"), if the ignition is switched off for an extended period while data logging but data logging is not terminated, then when the ignition is switched on again the data log automatically continues. However, the DMA PIDs may no longer return valid data.

Workaround: EFILive recommends stopping the data log and restarting the data log when switching off the ignition for extended periods.
