    Default Not caring for the new update

    I have used EFI Live for years and it always seems as though there are major problems with every update I have done. I updated everything the other day and now I can't BBX log. That was my favorite feature. It saves a file and when I try to open it I get Error code: ERR_WIN 0/0. I have Uninstalled and installed both programs and wasted half the day messing with it.

    So, there was no calc_pids.txt file under EFILive>V7.5>User Configuration. I put a copy under there and it is now working. In case anyone runs across this.

    Now I noticed that you can't copy a table. For example I used to copy the entire KR table with labels and paste and subtract with labels to B5913. That feature doesn't work anymore. This is basic stuff that should have been thoroughly tested before a release. This just added a substantial amount of time to tuning a vehicle properly.

    Yes, it is basic stuff and yes it was tested. I just tested it again and paste and subtract with labels appears to be working correctly.

    Is this in the V7 software or the V8 Beta software?
    Which exact version of the software are you using?
    Can you send me the tune file that you are using and the steps to reproduce the copy/paste problem?

    Note: You should log these types of issues via our help desk system so it can be tracked and managed until it is resolved.

    Paul, thank you for the response. Sorry to be frustrated over this. I have V7.5.32 and V8.3.3. I am logging with my V2 flashscan (that is up to date) I don't like driving around with a computer, I would just rather use the Flashscan. I then open the scan file on a laptop. The file opens up under EFILive Scan V7.5, and the tune is opened under EFILive Tune Tool, and fuel edit. If I open B5913 and go to Scan V7.5, under my KR map, highligh the table by clicking the top left box, copy with labels, then go to tjn tool, highlight table and paste and subtract with labels. I get this.

    Instead of pasting into EFILive, try pasting the data into Microsoft Excel (or just Notepad). That way you can see what is on the clipboard, like this:

    The top left cell MUST have the word LABELS in it - that signifies the data was "copied with labels".
    The cell to the right of "LABELS" contains the horizontal axis name (APCYL_DMA), the cell to the right of that contains the data name (KR)
    The cell under "LABELS" contains the vertical axis name (RPM).
    All other cells are the values in the axis and/or data.

    If the data is not formatted like that then you will see that message.

    This is what I get when I paste to Notepad. I have done it this way for years and have never seen this problem.

    That is a concern, that data should paste with labels correctly.
    I installed the current public release on a new (virtual) PC and tried the copy with labels and paste and subtract with labels and it worked correctly.
    At this stage, I'm not sure what the problem could be.

    Can you copy/paste with labels between similar tables in the tune tool - i.e. can you select a block of cells in the low octane spark map and use "copy with labels", then "paste with labels" into the high octane spark map? Does that work?

    The only other thing I could suggest is try upgrading to Beta-6, available here:
    https://forum.efilive.com/forumdispl...tallation-Help

    Note: Beta-7 is will be available in the next day or two - so keep a lookout for that update.

    Regards
    Paul

    I copied in the tune from low octane 0.84, and 0.88 column. I pasted them to Notepad and everything appeared correct. I highlighted the entire high octane table and pasted with labels. Every column up to 0.84 was populated with the 0.84 data, and from 0.88 and above was populated with the 0.88 data.
