Hi Tim,  

With the latest version of the Configuration Manager, it has never been easier to update the firmware on your PMC-Eight System.
Its literally 3 steps

1) Start the version 1.0.3 version of the PMC-Eight Configuration Manager and select the FIRMWARE tab.
2) Click the Download Firmware Button
3) Select the firmware version you want to use and click Flash Selected

You can click the View ReadMe button to review your choices and the latest updates to the firmware
