Realoem.com

Type last 7 of vin in there, you'll then be taken to a screen with categories for your car. Choose vehicle electrical system and you'll then see an option for battery. Click it and you'll see a list of compatible batteries for your car. Just take note of the Amp Hour ratings and CCA. Then you can go to oreillys or any automotive parts store, let the clerk know the amp hours and CCA rating you need and you're all set. No need for Oem battery, just as long as it's the same specs.

That's what I call lazy lol, "without open the trunk". Is it that hard to get up and do something yourself?

Hahah in his defense there's usually some sort of panel you gotta take off and kinda hard to read the sticker of battery specs since lots of times there's a brace connected on top that blocks it.

If you got as far as you said in the other post then yes the cable is working. You won't be able to go very far if the computer/program can't connect to the car

Might be easier to use Inpa or Tool32 .
It's better to get Inpa up and running and may be essential
depending on whose install you use.
Bimmergeek.net install requires Inpa(standard tools suite be
running first. )
Most PC problems are due to not having the complete set of
Microsoft C++ executable s installed or not having netframework 4.7
or better. Which operating system (windows 7 or 10 is not the issue)
Windows 10 comes with more stuff installed defacto than Win 7.

When I start seeing method error's it suggests that all the
C++ excutables are not installed.

https://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1581663

Also since this thread was started to give a library of software
it's not really a good place to ask questions about how to get it working I think.

It's probably best you find someone to remotely do the job for you. Unfortunately we cannot walk you through every single little detail, it would take too long to figure out where the problem lies. Last thing to check us ista vehicle interface. Make sure it's set to enet

Here is the update:

After read car information, there some icons showed brown and then got error: "the programming system could not be initialized. The ISTA installation may be damaged or incorrectly configured. Reinstall ISTA . If problems persists. Contact local support "

therefore I continue to select Vehicle management/service function//body/voltage supply/battery/register battery replacement, instead of Answer Yes to "is the newly installed battery an original BMW parts?", because I thought I bought a brand new BMW battery from BMW dealer, so it is an original BMW parts, is that right?

tonight, I select No, and then everything was successfully registered.
