After some further thought, let me toss out a few other realizations on this situation: (BTW, I'm a noob here and I apologize if I should have posted this in the newbie section).
does WinDWFlash have to have a .cvt file extension to work?
If the firmware file has an .exe extention can I just double click it and have it run and work properly? Am I over-complicating the process of flashing here? I have a feeling I'm making this harder than it really is.
Alternatively, do I need to have the standard B7T9 firmware already installed in order for the B7T9RPC1 to work?
all the firmware files on the BenQ support site have .exe extensions once they're unzipped. On my system at least, .cvt files appear with no program associated. I haven't even tried to do anything with a .cvt file yet. Since my unit is a retail version, I don't think I need to flash it with a .cvt file.
Am I right on any of this or way off?????
