First off, welcome to the .org!
As for your questions. I'm not sure where you're at with everything. You ordered and received an Xcal3 from innovative correct? Generally you will receive the unit, plug it in to your OBDII port and get your strategy. Next you will email the strategy to Eric, the owner of Innovative, and he will email you your custom tunes for your specific truck and strategy to you attached as ".ll3" files. You will need to go to SCTflash.com and download a program called "liveload" and various drivers, or if you got a CD with your Xcal that should work too. You use liveload to load your files/tunes to the Xcal unit via a USB cable connecting your PC to the flash tuner. Once you've loaded the files on the Xcal you simply plug the Xcal in to the OBDII port and follow the on-screen instructions. Sorry if I'm telling you a bunch of stuff you already know, I just didn't understand exactly what you were asking in your post. Hope this helps, and if you have anymore questions, ask away
