Not pulling any punches or trying to soft soap over anything:
NCS Expertentool (usually referred to as NCS Expert)... NCS Expert is part of the BMW Ediabas software suite which also contains programs like INPA - popular and advanced diagnostic software for BMW vehicles. NCS Expert is the coding part of the Ediabas software suite. NCS Expert was designed for internal use at BMW - in other words, for people who know exactly what they are doing. Unlike SSS/Progman, NCS Expert provides no help or guidance. If you don't know what you are doing, you may very rapidly end up with dead modules. Therefore the program is often labeled as dangerous to use.
And your other question:
rder = all items that came with the car from factory (i.e. Nav, Alarm, CD Changer, SAT Radio, Bluetooth, Etc.) Whatever options came with your car from factory will be programmed in. If you add items such as the Alarm - it will need to be programmed in (added to the VO) in order for it to function fully.
