This is why I will be going with you guys once the DCT tune is ready. You just cannot beat customer service like this.

FSWERKS also works with their customers on remote tunes. Seen it here and elsewhere. Just so folks know, and they are at present working using SCT's software, as they state on their FB. I'm excited about this.

Our software works on all version of windows. My daily laptop at my desk is running windows 7 x64 and my backup tuning laptop is windows 7 x86. Neither has any issues running our software. Honestly, in our office I know of no employee using windows xp; we even have windows 8 present.

In regards to the FSWERKS tune for the auto trans I am bringing my focus in for an exhaust and intake on Tuesday but also going to see if I can work having my car be their R&D car. So will let you guys know how its progressing if I can fit it into my schedule (really hoping I can).

You only need a newer "XP" serial unit which can be purchased almost anywhere. From there, make sure it is then updated to the latest firmware and you should be fine.
