    wierd though because if i try to open dis through the vmtool it loads but then wont let me get out of programme, have to physically turn off machine, it also says i cant configure the other programmes correctly until inpa works, which wont work, doing head in but more surfing needed to find out if any one else has had this problem.

    cheers.
    I agree 100%

    I tried every trick in the book, in fact I did get everything running fine, the problem was I couldn't get the diaghead emulator to work. Well it did work, then a reboot later and out to the car and it didn't work, really drove me crazy. The problem I believe is the software contains a lot of 16-bit code/drivers, which means you need some sort of emulator to simulate an older processor.

    Microsoft offer an XP Emulator to help companies transition to newer code, which in theory should work, or at least help, its also a free download IF you have a premium version of windows (not Home etc).

    Best solution to this problem, at least the easiest and most flexible, is to source a cheap and older laptop and dedicate it purely to running INPA and BMW TIS etc. While I'm sure it is possible to get it to run on a 64 bit system, the amount of workarounds and tweaks involved make it a real nightmare and unfeasable if you're not wanting to get driven insane in the process.

    Seems like Vista 64bit is the non starter Rick but regarding purely running INPA I'm virtually 100% sure M3DrEaMeR has it installed
    and running on a Win7 64bit os in XP compatability mode

    The XP compatibility mode didn't work for me, am curious as to how they got it working. I can get INPA installed and running, but connecting it to the car and getting data is a struggle. Last hurdle I faced wasn't the software running or even running correctly, it was the interface between the car and the software via the emulated diaghead. Proper headache material this

    Compatibility mode alone won't fix the problem of any underlying 16-bit code if the processor is still 64-bit. If they got it installed and connected to the car and receiving live data, I'd love to find out how they did it. Get em to spill the beans

    Right guys and gals,I've got everything working very well,apart from NCS Expert working on Win7 64bit.You have to disable the UAC in control panel,and for some software,disable the driver verification to install some drivers,then everything works brilliant.Anyone need help,just ask.

    Can you confirm you're getting live data via INPA through the car? I did the above but it was the diaghead that screwed it up, but gonna have another look now

    Maybe you could make a write up with images of the entire process of you installing everything ? Shouldn't take you too long and if you did I'm pretty sure everyone would be very grateful including myself and the OP.

    If not though no problem m8 I/we understand. Do it anyway though lol

    Thats excellent news then Are you using a diaghead emulator and if so, do you know what version it is? (it should say when started etc)
