FWIW: When I set the latency setting to 4 milliseconds, my connection was much better and I did not get any errors. 1 millisecond did not work for me at all, 16ms (the default) was error prone. Obviously YMMV. I am running Windows XP with SP3, 32 bit on an old laptop.
The latency setting would depend on the circuit board in your cable. For most people 1ms works great, but I guess there are some cables who need the bigger latency setting.

This thread started in 2012. Is the zip file still valid and instructions up to date? Plan on coding injectors this weekend. I'm reading you can install XP Mode on Windows 7 64bit and do Virtual PC.

I went there. Seems pretty involved. There's multiple methods discussed for various operating systems. Some talk about VirtualBox method too. Some talk about VMware. I'm guessing the V3 does installations on all Windows?
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1220039

I think I will try the XP mode since that seems easiest for Windows 7.
Run in compatibility mode for windows xp SP3, also run as administrator.

You're way off...if you reread my reply, you should easily be able to find the thread I mentioned.

I was up, running, and coding injectors in 10 minutes.

Sorry if this is a noob question.
But does this work for all DME types?
I noticed that only MSD80 pops up.
Should I assume the same process for MSD81.
Thank you

Vasil,

I'm having some issues with the install of the software. I'm using Windows 10.

So far I have done the following.

1) Installed the drivers for my INPA compatible D-CAN cable.
2) Determined that it is using COM3 for the port.
3) Changed the port settings to match your screenshots
4) Extracted the zip file to the C:

Setting up INPA
1) I've created the shortcut on my desktop

Here's where I'm running into problems.

In environmental variables I have more than two options but I do have TEMP and TMP as two of them. Looks like this :

https://photos.google.com/search/_tr...XZJx_COhhOqRt5

I highlight TEMP.
Then I highlight Path in the lower window and click Edit.

What I get then is a list of items that look like this :

https://photos.google.com/search/_tr...JR2G-PePVzmxj1

I created the last one that says C:\EDIABAS\BIN

What am I supposed to be appending because when I click edit on the path none of the options look like they are the path itself. I mean, the path says "C:\Windows\system32;C:\windows;C:\windows etc etc but none of the options in the edit window show the same string. They are all either %systemroot or C:\program files

Please can you explain this part a bit better.

Also, when I edit the .INI file I see this :

https://photos.google.com/photo/AF1Q...BakePGQ-JDNQjH

Am I changing the COM5 at the top to read COM3 ? (COM3 is my port as per device manager)
What about where it says COM2 at the bottom of the file ?

I replaced #6 injector last night with a slide hammer made out of a nut screwed onto the injector, a piece of threaded rod screwed into the nut, a large socket to slide up and down the rod and a nut on the end to stop the socket from sliding right off. Hey, it worked eventually. ;-)

Thanks
Will
