Did you just get the GTE rim add on? Have you already calibrated your TX on this game already with the stock rim? If so, then no.

If not, then here.

The picture of your TX in game will still show the stock rim, FYI. Does not show add on rims on the screen, in calibration area.

Yes I just bought the Thrustmaster Ferrari 458 Challenge wheel, and connected it to the base and I followed the instructions which were basic, and connected it to my computer and downloaded the upgrade, but in the process none of the adjustment windows appeared on the screen, and looking at the link you provided the wheel shown is not mine, but the Thrustmaster Ferrari Spider 458 wheel.

What are you talking about? The link I posted here for you, takes you to TX set up process. The link inside that post, takes you to TX firmware update page at Thrustmaster. The picture in my initial link is showing firmware number is from my computer, when the F1 rim was on my TX. The computer Thrustmaster software will show which rim is on your TX base.

I don't know where in the world you got "Spider" from. All TX stuff. The stock TX base does come with a 458 Italia rim on it, if you didn't know. 217747
Sounds like you bought one that came with GTE rim instead.
217748
You can get the F1 rim for it.
217749
Or the TM Leather 28 GT rim.
217750
Either way, it's still a TX.

That doesn't matter. Your wheel base is a Thrustmaster TX, with the GTE add on rim. The links I gave you are correct.

This is the Thrustmaster 458 Spider
217800

This is the Thrustmaster TX stock rim
217801

Look at the spider picture, the base of it is completely different shape than your TX base.

Having watched the you tubes on calibration of the wheels, I'm puzzled on how you get the info up on the screen to begin with. I'm not good with the jargon, and only race for my own pleasure, but would like to improve my times. I know the tracks very well, but it's the setting up to get better. I also use the Thrustmaster Ferrari 458 spider, with Xbox one. Racing F1 2015. Absolutely bog standard at setting up. Can you help me please?
