Um,
What do you mean "isn't working"?

The link Tom provided isn't downloading?
The downloaded file is not installing?
The installed software is not opening?
The software opens but can not connect with the device/car?

Any of which you might find an answer here --> http://www.sctflash.com/support/inde...gebase&_a=view

Ah. I didn't click far enough.

http://www.sctflash.com/software/LiveLink.exe

That should work.

With a X3 you're technically supposed to put the device serial # in. But if you pick a X2 you don't have to and it brings you to the same software. It might sound strange but it has to do with firmware updates which are on the same page.

And that is Live Link 6.5.
If you need another version just post back. I have a few of the older versions, and I think they're also posted somewhere on the site. I'd have to look though.


And LiveLink GenII can be downloaded here --> http://www.focusfanatics.com/forum/r...Link_GenII.exe

It's very handy for sorting out the datalog and viewing it. It won't datalog with an XcalII or on zetec/SVT/SPI cars. It will work with the XcalIII on Duratec cars though.

If we buy our tuning from you, will we be able to forever data log and read the data log ourselves on our laptops?

I'm unfamiliar with the SCT tuning software and devices. I was considering buying this: http://www.scantool.net/scan-tools/obdlink-sx.html

But if the basic functionality is something we get anyways when we buy a tune I would not need this.

That tool is just that. To get the something like the screen shot pictures, you need software (which you choose at the bottom).
The problem with the software is that there are extra costs for 'Ford Enhanced Data', which is very beneficial but not always needed.
Here is a generalized list of Enhanced Data --> http://www.palmerperformance.com/sup...d_enhanced.php
And Generic OBDII --> http://www.palmerperformance.com/sup...neric_pids.txt


So for a software/tool similar to the dataloging capabilities of the Xcal and LiveLink (which is free), you're looking at spending $214.85.
You will have no personal support.
No tuning ability.
No resale value, the license terms are for you and you only for the software.

The Xcal is a better value for the money IMO.

You can datalog ANY Ford vehicle with the Xcal and LiveLink, but you can only tune yours.

I was mostly concerned with reading codes and checking basic things like airflow and recording which the obdwiz software (included) appears to do. I want this basic functionality always- I dont want to depend on a contracted tuner for these things. I will however want a tune too. Seems like I might want both of these then.

No.
If you're getting a tune, just buy that. It'll save you $50 on the scantool.

LiveLink is SCT's datalogging/OBDII software. It also scans codes.

Download --> http://www.sctflash.com/software/LiveLink.exe

You won't be able to use it unless you have a Xcal, which you'll get when you get your tune. You can download, instal and open the software to look through it though. It won't be exact to you car but, open the software and click on "Commands", roll down to "Configure Datalog Items For Strategy" when the box pops up type in "KRAF4" (a zetec cal id). That will give you some idea of what you're able to datalog, and actually you will be able to log many more things that show up there.

With the Xcal itself, you can scan for codes. No other software needed.


Basically, the Xcal will do everything you want, no outside help needed.
