    Take a look at the document available as part of the V8 software called:

    Start->All Programs->EFILive->V8->Documents->Upgrading Firmware
    You most likely will need to make sure your FlashScan is at firmware V2.04.72, then do a boot block upgrade on the device.

    LOL. You were too quick Paul.

    Check this knowledgebase article which describes the process for updating FlashScan bootblock/firmware. As Paul says the most important thing to ensure is that you first upgrade to 2.04.72 before attempting to update to 2.05 and later.

    Currently, the EFILive software is handling non-US settings in Windows incorrectly. Until we get that fixed, please try this:

    On a Windows 7 system:

    • Go into ‘Control Panel’.
    • Choose ‘Region and Language’.
    • On the ‘Formats’ tab choose ‘English (United States)’ format.
    • On the ‘Location’ tab select ‘United States’.
    • On the ‘Administrative’ tab click the ‘Change system locale’ button and select ‘English (United States)’.

    Regards
    Paul

    FYI – I just updated my V8.2.1 to Build 170. When I downloaded Build 170 and installed it, and then opened S&T, it indicated that it was indeed Build 170. However, when I went to V8>Tools>Check for Updates, and had it download and install the updates, re-opening S&T indicated that it was now Build 160. Maybe a minor issue, maybe not.

    The update has reverted your install back to build 160. I recommend re-installing from the files you downloaded to get back to build 170.

    So, on the EfiLive Download Software web page where it says "After installing, please check for new updates using:
    Start->All Programs->EFILive->V8->Tools->Check for New Updates., I should ignore that? If so, is that just temporary for this particular build? Seems like I won't be getting some necessary updates when I do skip it. Thanks.

    Please do not use Check for Updates until further notice.

    You will see new versions posted in this thread (which you can install by directing executing the .exe):
