Many have asked for the easy way to install BMW Std Tools, and I have developed a proven method that can be done in less than 15 min depending on the processing power of your machine.

The only requirement for this install is Windows XP through Windows 10, 32 or 64 bit version and a working KDCAN cable. Instead of writing a lengthy detail in this post, I generated the instructions that's included in link below.

If this install has assisted you in achieving a working set up, please click the appreciate link, thanks!

MediaFire: https://www.mediafire.com/folder/a7jvirbs559ib/Software

NOTE:
For everyone who's having issues setting the default folders, it is because some of the downloads excludes "empty" folders. Therefore, make sure your folder structure on the C drive are as follows (if you're missing a particular folder, create an empty one):

C:\EC-APPS\INPA:
BIN
CFGDAT
DEMO
DOKU
english
english.met
HELP
PRT
SGDAT
source

C:\EC-APPS\NFS:
BATCH
BIN
CFGDAT
DATA
DOKU
FORMAT
KMMDAT
SGDAT
TRACE
WORK

C:\EDIABAS:
API
BIN
DOKU
ECU
HARDWARE
HELP
SIM
TRACE
TUTORIAL

C:\NCSEXPER:
BIN
CFGDAT
DATEN
PFL
SGDAT
STDAT
TAB
VERPLATZ

Edit 1: Added F series files for INPA. Added support files for N47.
Edit 2: Added working copy of NCS Dummy.
Edit 3: Updated DATEN link.
Edit 4: Added notes about setting default folders in BMW Coding Tool.
Edit 5: Updated DATEN link to 60.0.

For the NCSExper_64 and EDIABAS folder, when I try to select them in BMW coding tool I am getting an error saying "not a valid NCSEXPER_64 (or EDIABAS) folder"

Any ideas? I have both the folders in the root C: drive and they are both extracted.

I'm on Win 10 64bit

EDIT:

For some reason it looks like not all the files are downloading when I download them. The ECU folder does not download from the EDIABAS folder for example.

EDIT 2: I figured it out I think. Mega wasn't downloading empty sub folders. For that reason coding tool was viewing the EDIABAS NCSEXPER and EC-APPS/NFS folders as invalid since those were all missing empty folders.

Compared what was on Mega to what I had and created any of the empty folders and it looks like it worked.

It's because Mega won't download an empty folder. I'll have it fixed tonight and post an update.

Link is fixed and shouldn't contain empty folders, so you should get a complete download.

Thanks a ton for this Joseph. I followed the steps and things seem to install and launch just fine

One question I have is that once I imported the DATENs, can I delete the original DATEN folder? It looks like the DATENs are sucked into C:\EC-APPS\NFS\DATA?

You can delete the chassis folder you downloaded that contains the DATENs, but you obviously can't delete the Daten folder under NCSEXPER.

You shouldn't have any problems deleting them if you have administrator privileges. Just select and delete.

More than likely your cable is bad. What color is the PC board, and where did you get it from?
