CanTrol WC Software Download?

Hello all!

Does anyone have a copy of the CanTrol WC Programming Software they would be willing to share? I am pretty disappointed in Whelen in making this software available only "through an authorized dealer." I have a 2017 unmarked Silverado with the CanTrol WC setup, and unfortunately I would like to fix some things the up-fitter did not do correctly...

Any help or leads would be appreciated!!!

It def looks like u can download it! Frustrating. It would be fun to play with a copy b4 deciding if the cantrol system is the right choice for the application.

I already tried to see if the Sapphire program would communicate with the Cantrol WC in a last ditch effort, and it does not... I also asked the up-fitter for a copy and was promptly told "No."

Its my hope SOMEONE on here may possibly have a copy of the program, or at least a means of obtaining one? Hopefully!

If you can get the serial number off the brain you can call Whelen with the information and they will send you a copy. That's how I got mine.
 
Seriously? I've always heard they're super strict on who has access to it. I desperately need to reprogram mine and can't.

Yes seriously. That’s how I got my software when I bought a used CanTrol unit.
Do you have the Cantrol Software, or Cantrol WC? There is a HUGE difference between the two... If you have the Cantrol WC, would you be willing to PLEASE share it?

I am in the same predicament. With no authorized installer closer than 3.5 hours from our department, I am stuck without being able to change some simple features. If someone would be willing to share a copy, it would be very much appreciated.
 
I've got a copy. It isn't very user friendly and there aren't any directions out there for using it. Authorized installers are supposed to go to a 2 or 3 day class to learn how to use it.

same for sos blueprint. I prefer cantrol
now I might be struck by lightning by saying this but the Cantrol can't do an eighth of what the SOS blueprint 3 system can. I've been installing Whelen for over 16 years and became one of the first authorized installers of the blueprint 3. I can and have installed Cantrol. The blueprint is 1/8 of the cost and can do 10 times as much. It's crazy.

Has someone mentioned that Whelen Command is now available that includes HS, WeCan, Sapphire, Carbide, and the last two CanTROL versions?

Automatically downloads if your try and use any of the other stand alone versions.
