Thanks for the thread.
I have a E46 M3, and I use a VagCon cable modified with 232b and real ignition.
I use a Asus Eeepc 1005Ah, windows 7 32 bits (Home version) and I had some problems at the end of installation.
I use this computer to other programs (Porsche) and COM1 is not available. Then I use COM4 and was configured with latency Timer=1 , 2046 and checked in register that RxFifo and TxFifo are set to 8 (0X00000008).
Firstly, when I started the installation INPA/Ediabas 6.4.3 and 4.4.7 you can’t select any port. Doesn’t have this option. On install BMW Tools, you have this option and I selected COM4.
Since my antivirus was off, all installation was normal and I can see INPA main page. But when I started the tests showed error IFH-0018. On OBD.INI I could see that was set to COM1 and I edited to COM4 and I made a new copy to c:\windows.
Now a have a real communication with OBD and the ignition was on when a turn the key.
But now I have IFH-0009 error. Looking on Inpa Problems FAQ.pdf all reasons to have this error was checked and nothing was wrong.
Any good idea?????
Problem solved: after searching a solution and not find, I decided to put the latest driver from FTDI. I remembered that my netbook has a program called spy-bot and decided to disable it while running the INPA. Result: Tested in my M3 E46 and I was able to access the various modules. Now I will test on other cars.

Many thanks. I have been having such uphill on my Windows "7" Toshiba. I shall clear it all out and start again. Mike
Exactly the same as my issue with exactly the same car as you. I have followed every guide I can find and I'm positive that I have missed nothing out.
Well it turns out that I forgot to turn off Windows Defender. Also, don't forget to end the VM session properly.
Finally got my codes

A massive thumbs up and thanks for taking the time to do this write-up, you've saved me a load of time figuring it out by the looks of it
Looking for a bit of help if you can,
7. Install BMW Tools
Set the Destination Path C:\BMW Tools (Don’t change this path) -> 'Install' -> 'OK'.
Select 'English' -> 'Continue' -> 'Continue'.
Ive got as far as the above, but am coming across an error message when trying to install - Windows cannot find ' C:\temp\Programinstallation\setup.exe ' -
Any ideas ?
