No. You have to download a thing or two i believe before you can get the tune onto the xcal3. blivit is the guy to ask about this.

Our software runs using the .NET framework which is pretty much standard now for windows applications. The current version of .NET is 3.5 and our applications require at least 2.0 which is rather old so this is telling you that your PC is at least a year behind (guessing) with windows updates.

Once you have a suitable .NET environment on your PC, install the X3LWUpdater program from our website. During the install of this program it will install the drivers for the X3 device automatically. Once this is done, plug in your X3. A new found hardware wizard will pop up. Choose "no, not this time" for the first question then "install automatically (recommended)" for the second and you should be set driver wise.

Once the driver is installed, open the program by double clicking on the icon that gets created on your desktop and plug in your X3 if it is not already plugged in. Choose the "liveload tunes" button then select the file that you were emailed.
