Revision Update Instructions- Using Legacy Connect

Some older versions of Predator software cannot be auto detected by the DS Downloader.
Any tool with a revision starting with 7rxx and some older 8rxx revisions will fall into this
category. Any tool with a 9rxx revision will auto connect, and should not require legacy
connection (but it can still be utilized if you desire). If your tool requires Legacy connection,
follow these steps. Also for use if your tool displays “Application is Missing or Corrupt”
