    Hi there, became a paid member on 4shared, I am now downloading the required files.

    Will keep updated, but this sure is driving me nutts...also still waiting on discs and pads, I know that I will deffo need to get this all sorted as I also found out today that as of april 2012, I would fail an MOT if i have any warning lamps at all showing.

    Just out of curiosity, if I were to get the files downloaded and have a fresh install of xp on my other machine I use in the garage, would anyone be able to vnc/teamviewer remote to me and help install the software for me, I would record the install and then up a howto video on how this is done.

    Think something like this needs to be done as there are always alot of questions about this.......It would also help all the guys on here who are looking to do the same thing and would stop people who were of the mind to just pull a bulb/ led from their vehicle, and so doing so would also help to keep our beloved bimms on the road in tip top working order.


    Was also thinking, would it be better to install windows 7 on the other machine as I know that the INPA has been got to work on it too......

    Hi guys again, just to get this clarified, this is the usb and adapter I have, also this is the onboard Connector my car has and lastly this is details of my exact car.
    Before I go through the brain draining exploits of trying to get this to work again, are these the right leads and adapter for my car, which is an E36 BMW 323I TOURING 1999 , Built May 1999.
    It is just that I read part of the INPA sticky and a guy had the 93 bmw and there was something about ADS and he had to get some other connector, so was just looking to see if this would be the case for me.........{hopes not}
    If some one can confirm this for me, then I will endeavour to get this done.

    Yep, you should be able to communicate at with most systems, sometimes only the ABS won't respond.

    Plug in the cable, and see where it appears in device manager and note down the com port.
    You can also set the latency to 1 here under the settings.

    When you install inpa, you need to make a change to the system paths to add c:\ediabas\bin into the list,
    When installing, it'll ask you what com port you are on, and tick the USB box underneath.

    You may find you need to do another install after, (first use the setup.exe and then next go to referenz/install and you'll see something like instprog.exe.)

    With them done, you'll need to change the obd.ini file in ediabas/bin to make you you have COM"x" and hardware=USB, and copy that file and put it in c:\windows

    9. Install OBD Setup

    From the above extracted file set, double-click the file 'Step 3_Final Update.exe'.
    The Destination Path should be left as it is, then select 'Install'.
    Select 'Yes to all'.
    Once completed, the window will close itself.

    Am at the above stage, when it finishes it throws up a window and it has an icon in it and says invalid image, so i click the ok button and it closes...........is this a problem?

    I didn't do the final update part on mine, I think I used one from a different package.

    Guide: Installing INPA/EDIABAS on Windows 7 64bit

    Have you read through the first post there?

    This is the guide that I am following, not sure what to do next, other than break a window that is located to the left of me, with a rather large box containing a pc and software that is doing my brain in........lmao

    Edit the file 'C:\EC-APPS\INPA\CFGDAT\INPA.INI' in Notepad, locate the section that starts with '//F3', remove the slashes at the beginning of the three lines of text, and amend any instance of 'F10' to 'E46'.


    where it says this, in my install, there is not even a //F3 section in the ini

    head to ECAPPS\INPA\CFGDAT and find the INPA.ini file.

    either rename it as .txt and post it here, of look for the slashes mentioned in the guide.
