Don't you have readme/install/how to file with this package? Tell us where is your problem.

Quick guide.
1. Install drivers FTDI ft232R
2. Don't forget to change COM port number to COM1 in device manager
3. Change latency timer for this port to 1ms
4. Install BMW Standard Tools, choose C: as your installation drive, choose STD:OBD as your hardware interface, restart PC
5. find Instprog.exe, run it and update your software, choose BMW UK Rectification program

Pretty much job's done. If you have good cable for your BMW, you can use INPA.

I have a 04 525i & am new to BMW's but am very interested in learning as much as I can about them so I'm wondering if anyone can direct me to the right cord I would need to go from my car to a 2018 HP laptop with windows 10?
