INPA startup errors

Sorry to start yet another INPA problem thread, but I'm running V5.0.2 on a Win 7 (64 bit) with a new $99 "USB K+DCAN USB Interface (INPA Compatible)" cable from One Stop.

I followed the DIYs posted here exactly (environment, path, interface in the EDIABAS.ini, etc.), with the exception of the serial port FIFOs as none are applicable for the USB cable driver. I set the USB Port properties for COM1 and set the latency to 1 msec per the One Stop installation instructions. When I start INPALoad the battery indicator is ON but the ignition is OFF.

I'm working with "E90" as my car is a 2008 335XI. Despite the startup issue, I tried to proceed and select e90 / F9 getting the appropriate dialog. If I double click 'airbag' I get an "IFH-003 ...interface interrupted" fault. I wasn't expecting it to work!

Any ideas on troubleshooting further would be greatly appreciated! Help!

I read some vague reference to COM port conflict issues on a Dell laptop, so I changed my port to COM3. I haven't had a chance to test it yet, but while rereading the OneStop Electronic installation instructions for my USB cable, they make reference to a COM port setting in the obd.ini file. I don't have an odb.ini file in any directoty of my install (C:\INPA, C:\EDIABAS, C:\NCSEXPER, or C:\ for that matter!). Any ideas or help would be appreciated.

I've heard of the same thing happening in the past and it turned out to be a bad cable - the user contacted One Stop and a replacement cable fixed the issue.

Tested COM3 setting for USB serial port and now the "Battery" indicator is OFF. Changed back to COM1 and got the Battery indicator back to ON, but I still have "Ignition" indicator OFF.

Still troubleshooting!
