Unable to Download new Firmware

I just received two new V6 Transceivers that were loaded with V1.1008 firmware.  In trying to set up TTL Pass Through for my Nikon SB800, I could not get variable power, an issue that has been discussed on another Discussion Thread. Apparently has problems that were fixed with more recent firmware.

When I downloaded the Cactus Updater, and follow instructions, I receive a message that the status is "Connected", but the Progress bar reads "Embedded file is corrupted or missing".

Now what?

    Please click “CHECK FOR LATEST FIRMWARE”, it will download the firmware file anyway as the panel shown “connected”. I hope that helps.

  • Have you tried this trick?
    By disabling the Signed Driver Enforcement (also known as digital signature)

    To help us better help you, always state the exact firmware version installed on your Cactus device(s), such as: "1.1.013", "FUJ.1.002", "v.103".

    For the time being, Cactus V6 (MK1) running on firmware version 2.1.001 can be triggered by a V6 II (MK2) running on Multi-brand HSS firmware (e.g. 1.1.013) and not by X-TTL firmware versions: PEN.A.001 and OLY.A.001.  No schedule has been released yet. 

    Cactus RF60X / RF60 Firmware versions A01 and A02 currently ONLY works with PEN.A.001 and OLY.A.001.  Other "A" version of X-TTL firmware will be released soon. For both Multi-brand HSS and X-TTL firmware versions (FUJ, SIG, SON), install firmware version 103 / 205 on your RF60X / RF60.

    Cactus RF60 is now an off-camera TTL flash with firmware version 205 or later!

    Metz M400 (for Fujifilm) is now supported on the Cactus V6 II (HSS and TTL).

  • Why can't I receive most recent firmware options for the Mac OS?   Download site for Cactus for Mac OS shows  Download version 1.08.   In using that to try and update my RF 60 and V6,   I do not get the most recent firmware.  For the V6 I only receive the 1.1.0019;  for the RF 60, I receive 202.   Looks like RF 60 is now FW 204 and V6 is up to 2.1.001.
  • Could it be you did not press this button before pressing the UPDATE button?
