Trying to code two different cars and having issues

I was able to successfully code my i3. After that, I tried to code my M235i but I am not able to connect to the car. The "connect via vin" option is grayed out. I have tried a couple of times. I've checked the cable both times. I'm using windows 7 and have confirmed that firewall, anti virus and wifi are all disabled. I am using the following:

E-sys 3.26.1
Psdzdata 54.2 Lite

Any suggestions? Do you need I clean install from scratch of e-sys for each car?

Do you have the "dist" folder in the proper place? Is your network bridged (if using VM or Parallels)?

I was using a MacBook with VMWare and it just wouldn't work no matter what I did on a 2015 535d (despite coding a 2013 535i just fine). I had to reinstall another virtualization program (Parallels) and it worked the first time.

It could just be Windows... Try reinstalling it. Sometimes it's the easiest thing to do instead of trying to figure out where along the way a setting changed and is screwing things up.

No. If you could code the i3, then you can code any car.

Just shut down M235i for 30 minutes, and try connection again.
