Reprogram Head Unit

I have an error message on my I-Drive screen: Head Unit Not Programmed Correctly
This is after a replacement of a MPM. I assume I need to some how program this correctly. I have search pretty diligently but I am not finding any clear guide or advice as to how to reprogram this correctly other that dealer or independent. I have a laptop and a VAGcom KLine cable from my E39 here. I want to reprogram this myself if possible. Any recommendation on how to best do this in terms of software and module to reflash?

A few threads in here regarding if programming is needed or not after a MPM replacement. In my experience it seems that it is but I cannot be certain that this Head Unit Not Programmed Correctly was not present before hand. When I got the car the module was damaged from water and the I-Drive was dead. I replaced 3 fuses and the MPM and I-Drive came back with the error and no volume whatsoever.

I have no error codes related to the Head Unit either.
