SCT device updater software bug 2.9.8.85 - HELP!

does anyone know where i can get a previous version of the sct device updater software? i used to have a version older than the current one 2.9.8.85 and when i updated, the program now will not expand large enough to see any buttons or load a tune file onto my tuner.

if anyone has an older version installer i'd really appreciate it. i've had a tune from tom for a while and i cant put it on my car till i get this software issue fixed. SCT does not answer their phones or online chat tech support at all.

apologies if this sounds stupid, but someone finally answered the phone from SCT. this is the 5th time i've called and waited longer than 30 minutes without being hung up on.

it was a simple fix for anyone else having this problem,

1-close the program completely

2-right click the SCT device updater software icon

3-click on properties

4-make sure you are on the shortcut tab

5-on that tab next to "Run:" there is a drop down menu. change that drop down menu to "Maximized"

6-click "Apply" at the bottom, then "OK" then re-open the software.


again, sorry if it sounds dumb, but i've been trying to get this fixed for a long time and havent ever found this solution. hopefully anyone in the future that has this problem will find this thread.
