**Mike's Easy BMW Tools Package**

SINGLE INSTALLATION FILE. ZERO CONFIG.

I have just finished spending the day creating an installation package that I think people will find very useful. The package takes all the guess work out of getting your computer ready for coding and diagnostics. It will be extremely useful for novices as well and basically is one single installation file that installs and sets up EVERYTHING.

What's installed:
- Inpa 5.0.6 (with English script files & Support for F-series)
- EDIABAS 7.3.0
- NCS Expert (with English menus and buttons, and NCS Dummy Profile pre-installed)
- NCS Dummy 4.0.1
- Tool32 4.0.3
- WinKFP 5.3.1
- Integrated SP-DATEN v53.3
- BMW Coding Tool v2.5.0 (for use as an alternative to NCS Dummy, or to update DATEN files as new ones become available)
- USB Drivers for cable

Why is this beneficial?
- One single installation will install ALL the programs needed for coding & diagnosis, will update the programs to show English menus, will set up NCSExpert with the correct NCSDummy profile, will automatically install USB Drivers, and comes integrated with SP-DATEN 53.3 (YES, Integrated!)
- All the latest versions of the programs in one neat install file
- No hunting or searching for SP-DATENs then struggling to import them
- SMALL file size. The entire package is only 170MB!! No need to download 15GB of DATEN files.
- System Environment PATH variables taken care of by the installer
- USB Driver included and automatically installed (and figured out if you need the 32 bit or 64 bit driver by itself)


The ONLY thing that users may need to do is reconfigure their COM port to be COM1 after the install, but a Readme file pops up after the install with simple instructions.


Hopefully this is not against the rules posting a link. If it is, feel free to contact me to have it removed.

I know nothing of this source, but my BMW Standard Tools and INPA Fxx was 156mb.

Have a hard time believing this does not violate Bimmerfest policy though.

I've tested it and installs cleanly. You have to learn the program's though especially if your going to use WinkFP

I had all the software before hand. I would like to learn wink FP but haven't had time yet. Mike did a great job writing the software for an easy install. I just passed it along. Also, I m not sure if I got it from this website or from anothet

I've been using NCS Expert to code my 2006 E90 for 2 years with no problems. Just bought a 2012 E92 and have spent about 4 days trying to get it to work with no success. Tried 2 versions of EDIABAS, 2 versions of NCS, 3 versions of SP-Daten (including 53.3). Reinstalled about a million times.

Downloaded this installer and had it working in minutes. In 64bit Windows 10.

Nice one Mike!!!

Yeah, I thought it installed smoothly as well. Those programs can be tough to install.

When I select Choose ZUSB in WinKFP, I get an empty list. Can you help me resolve this?

I haven't used Winfp yet so I can't help. You can go to other websites that specialize in winkfp

you need to import the files to WINKFP first. there are lots of tutorials around.
the fastest way is to use the coding tool...

Downloaded that thing, since my bmtechnic acted up and wanted new activation codes.
But I got FTDI CDM Driver error while installing, is that important?. I also have a problem with getting the usb port called com1 as described in the readmefile..

Sounds like you have a problem with your cable. You need to check to make sure your usb cable is set to com port 1. Depending on your operating system it could be set to com port 4.

Thanks, found out, it was at com3. When you launch the ncs expert, isnīt it supposed to be in the wmware virtual machine? Do you have to start the virtual machine by itself first?

No NCS expert should just start but I've only used it a few times. Go to bmwcoding.com and they can walk you through it. I use INPA mostly to check codes and reset them. I also used INPA to adjust my vanos and stopped smoke coming out during idle.

NCS doesn't use VMware that is DIS that uses that.

What are you trying to do? NCS Expert is for coding modules. It doesn't do diagnostics. For that you need INPA or DIS or, better still, ISTA Rheingold. INPA is very clunky, though quite useful if you can get it recognise all the modules in your car. I can't even get it to talk to my DDE, so it's not much use to me. DIS is way better but a total ballache with all the VMware BS. On my laptop, it only loads 1 time in 4. Rheingold is a standalone program that runs in any version of Windows (including 64 bit Windows 10). It does everything that DIS does but loads every time with no problems, is quicker and easier to use.
