Windows 10?

I have 2 laptops. One has Windows 10 and the other is a Mac. Before I go through setting up Boot Camp with Windows 7 on the MacBook I would like to know if anyone has done coding from Windows 10 yet.

Thanks. That's great news. I just ordered an e-net cable and a wifi ELM327. Most of the coding forums reference the cable. Is it capable of more stuff than what you can get to from the wifi connector or just more reliable?

If we are talking about coding, you do nothing with ELM327. Enet is for F-series, K+DCAN for E-series.

I didn't realize the E-series was a different cable. I mostly want to code my F25 but may want to do one or two things on the E60.

Is the ELM327 good for anything or a waste of money? I was going to try some iOS apps but since there are official BMW apps that work over USB maybe there is no point.

I can probably still change the order.

Also not sure if it matters. The E60 is 2010 with NBT.

I have not used ELM327. I know that you can use some apps like bmwhat with it. Iphone requires wifi-elm327.

For coding NBT you need enet and e-sys. It also requires special tricks and knowledge to code it when it is installed to e-series car. Maybe you should ask from the person who installed it.

I'm getting confused on my iDrive acronyms. It's the 2010 iDrive, newer than what is in older E60s. CIC? Anyway, the ELM327 wifi is only $17 so I'll just let that ride.

Is the verdict that I need K+DCAN for this E60?

If I do an in-place upgrade on my Windows 7 laptop to Windows 10 (not a fresh install) will the programming software still work?

Has anyone tried upgrading their seven machine to Windows 10 and run into any coding problems?

My friend told me that Windows 10 slowed his Rheingold v50 vehicle test significantly.
