EDIABAS and INPA will work on win7 64 - that is what I am doing. NCSEXPERT requires 32 bit, so many are using a virtual machine to run XP or other backroute approach. I am still trying to determine how I will do it.
Much props to OP for writing this, got me started and I am very excited to have this. I would add to the tutorial it is imperitive that COM1 is used, source of my confusion - and it can be changed in COM settings, advanced settings, and using the drop down menu to select COM 1 if it is anything else
FYI I bought this one for $45 from amazon:
Interface USB OBD2 OBD II for BMW - INPA/Ediabas - K+DCAN
sold by: OBD-HotSales
shipping was faster than estimated (I have no affiliation to them btw)
