    Default LiveLink Issues Installing and Logging

    Setup: Toshiba laptop running Windows 8.1, X4 with current firmware 1.1.1.5 build 11, LiveLink 2.3.11 scanning 2003 Cobra.

    Certain PID or DMRs do not read correctly, such as ENGINE SPEED reading 22000 or ACT2 reading -16K to +16k. Even if I try to log those values independently they still read wrong.

    I tried to install the latest update of LiveLink 2.4.7.0 but when opening the program I get a "failed to load strategy..." (see attached) and then selecting ok causes the program to close. Even if I ignore the message and proceed when I get to connecting to the vehicle it can't find any strategies to load.

    SCT won't be open until Monday so I figured I'd post here first to see if anybody has had an issue and knows a solution. Last setup I had working on the car was in 2006 (WinXP, X2, LL 2.1.5) so I can't offer up any possible recent changes that may have caused this.

    Searching some more today and I found someone stating they had issues with an older version of Gen II Livelink running on Windows 8 and had to use compatibility mode and run the program as an administrator.

    Instructions on how to do that:
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...ersion-windows

    Installed Livelink 2.4.7.0 and ran the program as an administrator and program opens and runs without errors. Scanned a 2003 F250 V10 at work and I'm NOT getting any random numbers that don't make sense. I have not had to change any of the compatibility settings at this time.

    Will test tomorrow on the Cobra when I get home. Wanted to update this thread in case anyone in the future has errors.
