    BMW Diagnostic Cable Tool with car coding Software - DIS SSS INPA EDIABAS | eBay

    I have just fininshed installing INPA for 64bit win 7 and trying to get an connection to car,
    so i can get further with the installation.

    Here is a picture of where i am now.

    My picture on my computer is all the same as the above picture.

    My car is an 530D E61 2007 model.

    The guide is telling me to choose the right car model, and as I
    understand is the E60. But here is where i doent know where to
    continue. I doent know what engine I should put in.

    I know i am a noob, but everybody have to learn some time.
    And i am a fast learner.

    Thank you very much.

    Morten

    It'll be either DDE5 or DDE6, I'm guessing it'll be 5, but try each one and see what happens. If you pick the wrong one, it'll say no response from control unit.

    Try something like Body> instrument cluster too, as there's only one of them so you can't go wrong.

    Above all, don't go resetting everything!

    Oki an update here.

    Because i had allot of issues with installing this.
    I have reinstalled windows 7 on my laptop.
    And now i have followed this guide:

    Guide: Installing INPA/EDIABAS on Windows 7 64bit

    Everything went well and i now have the programs installed again.

    I did as you said. Tried DEE5, DEE6 and Body<Instrument cluster, but just
    got an error message like this:

    Error message.png

    I have tried to do the same thing without cable connected
    to car. And i am getting the same error as above picture.
    Is there something mor i need to instal to get this to work
    except for what explained in this guide?

    Regards Morten

    Looks like a hardware error to me, how old is the laptop? Are you using the USB cable, or the Serial-to-USB cable? Either way, it's entirely possible the port/interface you're using on the laptop is damaged, even if only slightly. Try using a different USB port if you're using USB and if you're using Serial, switch to a USB port instead. This could possibly also be the cable, but I doubt it, it looks like it's complaining about it's own hardware, not something attached to it.
    If everything seems fine, then you probably haven't grasped the gravity of the situation.

    Oki.

    I will try this but this is a compuer that is not older then
    1,5 year. And i am using that usb port all the way and
    it has always worked. But i will try one of the oders to see.

    I am using this cable:

    BMW Diagnostic Cable Tool with car coding Software - DIS SSS INPA EDIABAS | eBay

    Its an usb cable. But the computer understands it as a com port.

    Hello i just noticed this on the ebay site where I bought the cable:

    Important: This will work for BMW cars from 1991 to 2006/2007. This will not work on cars built from 03/2007 and newer cars (from when BMW started using D-can for OBD communication)

    My car is actual almost an 2008 model. Mine is 2007 in 11. month i think.
    Its the facelift version. Can this be the deal? If so, what cable do i need to
    use then?
