Default 2007 2.5i EcuFlash prob reading ECU

I am attempting to read the ECU rom using EcuFlash v 1.34. When i am prompted to select the type of vehicle the only selection with a 2007 model year is the WRX-STi option. So i tried that since Im only doing a read. When i start a read it looks like its doing everything correctly, takes about 2 or 3 mins to download the ROM image and then it says

"Unknown ROM Image - EcuFlash could not recognize this ROM image with any of the current definitions. please choose from the following:"

so i pick to go ahead and save (will not be able to view or edit). And the error i get in the EcuFlash Task Info window is

"Image File is incorrect size"

Maybe its 32bit ECU and 16bit EcuFlash software?

Im pretty descent with computers but very new to ECU logging/flashing/tuning.

So I looked for newer EcuFlash definitions for the 2007 Impreza 2.5i everywhere and cannot find them at all! Am I doing something wrong? Do I just need new/correct EcuFlash def's for my 2.5i? Where can I find them? I can't seem to figure out how to update the def's for EcuFlash even if I had more current ones. My eyeballs are going to implode from staring at this screen forever trying to find new def's. thanks for any help!

Oh, that's a good point. Neither RomRaider nor ECUFlash come with the current defs, you have to download them separately.
