How to Update SVCI 2020 Abrite Commander Firmware?

One customer gave feedback that he cannot connect to the interface when using SVCI 2020 V38.1 software to read and write CS, MAC, PIN of ECU while version V18 and V24 does work.

It always says “Connecting to the interface, please wait…” and “Connection Error: Interface not connected! If you have already connected the interface, please try to reconnect it and/or restart the application. NOTE: The interface should be connected with a car”.
