Hi Guys,

First of al thank you very much for sharing this with the comunity.

It is my first time trying to do this sort of things.
I have installed everything according to instructions and all seems to be properly installed, including the cable, when conneceted to the computer.

The problem I'm having is that I connect to the car and nothing happens....
Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks

Sorry to anyone who downloaded the install over the past week or so, as it had a bug. New BMW Standard Tools file is now uploaded.

I downloaded the software and after a few evenings of messing with things to get it all sorted, I was able to code my car tonight. I already have ISTA-D and ISTA-P and now have BMW Standard Tools all playing nicely in the same lap top. Thanks for posting the info.

Hi guys. I've been looking to update my transmission almost 6 month since I notice some issues and finally find appropriate information, I appreciate your work its very helpful and finally I hope it can solve my problem. I already have CARLY Wireless OBDII adapter. My question is if it's possible to perform all that update with wireless adapter or I need one with com port cable? Thanks

Each time I open the BMW Coding Tool (as administrator) the Daten's are no longer there and NCSExpert doesn't launch from the button iat the bottom. This is without the car connected. Is this normal?

Had this same issue with another download from another site.
I'm trying to determine if I have a bad cable.

The buttons at the bottom of the BMW coding tool are just to select the folder that each of those items are installed in. You should have an icon for launching NCS Expert on your desktop and it should open up fine without your cable attached.

Thanks. I can load it up by going to the executable in my C drive. I was just wondering if the Coding Tool was installed ok. How about the Datens? Do they need to be loaded up each time you open the Coding Tool?

When you open NCSExpert from this download, are there 2 profiles Factory Reset and Feature Coding?

Sorry for all the novice questions. I'm wondering if my cable is bad. Hard to believe since it is new and from Bimmergeeks and they have a low fail rate

I'm new at this too, but from what I know once you update the Datens you should be good in NCS, no need to update each time.
The one that I got to work in English which I posted above has Integrated SP-DATEN v53.3 which should be all I need for my 2008 328i so I haven't tried updating Datens. When I do load profile in NCS I get default profile and Dummy NCS profile as choices. I'd go with the Feature coding one I guess, Factory reset sounds scary.

Have you seen this little tutorial?

Thanks for that link. Actually I feel pretty comfortable with the coding having researched it for so long. Of course, it's easy to feel comfortable about something I haven't done. But the coding seems almost intuitive once you've watched enough tutorials. Here are 2 good ones you've probably found:

You don't need to open it as administrator each time, just the initial time and the datens aren't loaded inside the coding tool itself, it's just a program that loads them into the appropriate folders for use by other programs.

If your shortcut for NCS Expert isn't working for whatever reason, go into C>NCSEXPER(_64)>BIN, find NCSEXPER application, left click, right click it, create shortcut, then drag the created shortcut to your desktop. Problem solved.

Just watched that video and it shows how to change the VO. Take this with a pinch of salt, but, I think you can do a lot of coding without changing the VO. VO changes are a bit more involved than just coding. The negative of not changing the VO is that if a shop does some programming on your car the modules you've coded might revert back to the VO.
