Does anyone have the Eye-Fi Pro X2 card working in the E-M1?

I have spent many days trying to get my Eye-Fi Pro X2 card to send images to my Windows 8 laptop without any success.

I would even consider paying someone if they could walk me through the process of getting this to work. I will be happy to discuss the details if anyone is interested.

I have contacted Eye-Fi service, but this is a very lengthy procedure as I give them information and it takes a day or two to get an answer, then when this does not solve the problem, I do the same thing over and over again.

You may see an older post in this forum where I was trying to get this card to work with my iPad. I finally got that to work, but it just wasn't reliable. The iPad would display 5 or 6 images then it would just stop transferring images. This  isn't what I want when I have a paying client in the studio. I want reliable and consistent image transfer. I prefer transferring images to my laptop because I have a large monitor connected to the laptop for displaying the images.

I have been using this setup for years now with my E-5 without any problems. I am close to the point of dumping all my Olympus gear because of the lack of USB transfer of images with the E-M1, like they have on the E-5.
