Fire Control new user

I have not recieved my machine yet. I have been playing with Fusion, Sheet cam, making a few drawings to try when the crossfire pro arrives and is set up. When I open fire control it wont do anything. Am I correct in assuming that I need to have the crossfire hooked up to upload a program to fire control? Just looking to get a feel for it before I need to use the software.

That’s correct. It runs only when connected through USB to the black box.

Thanks. That is what I assumed.
