You don't need to. Install using Win 7 compatibility mode and it will run fine on Win 10. Step 1 of the install instructions.

I'm on Step 17 of the install and I've hit a problem.

When I open up the BMW Coding Tool, I cannot get past setting up Button #1 because when I select the Download folder where the daten info was downloaded, I get an error message that states "not a valid SP-daten folder".

I'm absolutely new to this, so apologies if this is a very simple problem.

Initially, I downloaded just the e89.rar daten file thinking that I just needed the particular file for my car. I got the "not a valid SP-daten folder" message. So, I proceeded to download the complete daten folder and the outcome was still the same.

Could someone help me finalize the install of this??

Did you unpack E89.rar to a new location with a Zip program.
Most all this stuff requires that.
.rar files are compressed and cannot be used till uncompressed.
(or unzipped as we call it)

You need one of the zip programs that does .rar files.

First, thank you to the OP and all who have contributed to this thread. It helped me gain the confidence to do coding myself on my car with my old laptop. Having said that, I just got Bimmergeeks ProTool and it looks to make at lot of this now obsolete. I may never need to open my old coding laptop again. I would encourage you to check it out. And No, they did not pay me to say this. I just remember when I came on these forums a few years back wondering if I should get a Cobb Tuner and someone simply said "Why not try MHD, it's the future". Paying it forward.

Whenever i try to download the "BMW Standard Tools" file, i get a virus warning, saying "This program is dangerous and executes commands from an attacker.", preventing me from downloading the program. Is anyone else having this problem?

Are you downloading from the link on the Bimmergeeks site? If you are its more than likely fine.

I'm reaching out to the forum in the hopes someone here can help me out. I have a couple cars in my garage and have recently tried to upgrade the Z4 3.0i to 3.0si. Unfortunately I have failed miserably and now the little guy wont start. I am using the Bimmerlabs coding and not really sure what happened other than a "fatal error" is now showing. I have reached out to Bimmerlabs but have not received any response to date.

P.S. I'm pretty much computer illiterate but do have access to my IT guy that speaks the language.

What did you do to it and what is the difference between
a si and a non si.
What kind of motor do you have ..
Did you mess with the DME
Exactly what did you try to do?
d/k can cables are not recommended for a total re flash of the car.

Do you think maybe you depleted the battery .
describe exactly what you where trying to do.
no si non si in the 3 series that I am aware of at least in the US.

It's fine... Don't know why Windows Defender is stating it's a dangerous file. This software has been around for a very long time with no issues.

You will most likely need to exempt that folder/file until you can get it installed.

That's only if you're setting it up to use the software on the F series.

N55 on E84 INPA

This install went super smoothly. I really appreciate the explanation of what you are doing in each step.

I have a 2015 e84 (X1) with the N55 engine and I am really struggling to get INPA to work correctly. I installed the e89 daten (as e84 is in the e89 family). When I start up INPA there is no e84 option (expected). I tried both the e89 and the e83 option but there is no N55 engine option for either of these chassis in INPA.

I also tried the e90 because it has a N55 option, but I get an error message. This try was also a bit of a shot in the dark as I was at a loss for next steps. The error (after being passed through translate):

"Searched ECU 'MEVD17KW' not found. Found control unit 'MEVD176K'. You either have an outdated file ..\EDIABAS\ECU\T_GRTB.PRG, and / or the controller gives you a wrong variant and / or diagnostic index. the program is canceled."

I have both of these ipo files in the INPA\SGDAT folder.

Does anyone have insight as to what I'm missing to make this work?

Hello everybody. I've been reading over this thread yesterday and today as well as successfully installing the software . My cable is being delivered today, so I am really excited to try programming. I do have a question though, is there a process described anywhere how to program keyfobs using BMW standard tools or the NCS Expert?

You cannot program keys with this software, it requires specific key programming software that is not free.

Ok so I'm having an issue with the aux port. I have it showing up on the screen, and bought this cable. When nothing is plugged into the cable, I can select aux. If I have my phone plugged in and select the aux input, the radio freezes up, reboots several times, then comes back to radio. Has anyone experienced this before? Is it the cable or my programming?

this has nothing to do with setting up std tools.

this has nothing to do with setting up std tools.
Better start another thread maybe in the stereo sub
forum with details on which type of head unit you have
(idrvive or pro radio)and what options the car came with.
what programming did you do? Is this even a 3 series?
You handle says 650i
