Coding: (No Request) Latest Software Links

What is Included:
  1. Software Overview and Requirements
  2. Latest Software Links & Installation Instructions
NOTE1: URL Links are in BLUE and pictures are links to larger images.

NOTE2: Click here for Getting Started Guides, Tips, & Cheat Sheets

1. Software Overview and Requirements:

This guide serves Fxx, Ixx, and Gxx-series vehicle. For E-series, different software and cable are used. Complete Software & Interface Overview.

Supported Chassis Code Overview



Alternative Resources: Burger Tuning & BMW Archives

Prerequisites:
  • Windows 7-10 Computer with .NET Framework 4.5.2 (or greater) due to new features added.
    • Alternative: Mac with Windows Virtualization (eg, Parallels, VMFusion, Oracle Virtualbox) or Apple Bootcamp
      • ALL VM Setups: Network Adapter configuration should be set to Bridged Network mode.
      • Note: Starting with Premium 2.8.2, VM no longer supported. You can still use Bootcamp on Mac.
  • E-Sys = Main Coding Software
  • PSdZData Lite (~2.5 GB) = ECU Data Files. Works for VO & FDL Coding.
  • E-Sys Launcher = Provides License (ie Activation), FDL-Coding mapping, Cheat Codes (Section 7), & other optimization.
  • Connection Interface = ENET Cable (OBDII to RJ45 Ethernet) or ICOM. For computers without an ethernet port, you can use USB-to-ethernet adapters



2. Software Installation:

NOTE: Links never change. Latest versions always found below.

E-Sys - Install Instructions - v.15.pdf (Guide courtesy of member Shawnsheridan)

E-Sys 3.27.1 - Preferred version (All functions work)
  • E-sys 3.28.1 - May result in JRE runtime errors when you try to "Edit FDL" in Expert Mode > Coding
    • You will not be able to inject CAFD or flash program
    • External Transmitter does not work
  • E-sys 3.31.0 - Only use with Pro Launcher
    • Coding-Verification & External Transmitter do not work
Launcher Pro 3.x - NO LONGER AVAILABLE
  • See pdf instructions on acquiring activation for use
    • Pro Launcher TIPS: For Improved Pro Performance:
      1. Use 64-bit Java (JRE7 for E-sys 3.27.1 & JRE8 for 3.28.1+)
        • Replace 'jre' folder contents in E-sys installation directory or create separate 'jre_x64' folder. Then, set Launcher memory settings to custom 4-8 GB.
      2. Exclude kiswb that you do not using Launcher Settings
      3. Minimize Cheat Sheet Authors selected to just those you need
  • Launcher Premium 2.8.x (w/ Built in Token Generator) - Does not work after 12/31/2018
    • NOTE: Pro Launcher has newer mapping so you risk coding incorrect FDL's with Premium for G-series

Latest PSdZData_Lite (~2.5 GB) WORKS FOR ALL FDL CODING & VO CODING
  • Use this guide to determine your I-Step.
  • You only need one lite version for coding that is equal to or greater than your I-Step.
    • NOTE: If you get "Not Found [C012]" error when "Read Coding Data," it is time to update.
  • Do NOT merge. DELETE old PSdZData folder & REPLACE w/ new PSdZData folder.
  • ISTA-P Version & I-Level Overview
  • Certain E-sys installation require a minimum Psdzdata:




TokenMaster's NCD / CAFD Tool 0.5.2 (Optional)
  • One other useful tool. You can read more about it here.


By Resource:
  1. NCD / CAFD: Read *.ncd files offline and easily search for function, viewing current settings as well as other options
  2. NCD Compare: Load *.ncd files using Folder icons or drag & drop and then far right button initiates compare. Popup showing Left vs right values which you can highlight and copy if you choose. It also highlights *.ncd trees differences in red & you can scroll up and down.
  3. Decrypt CAFD: not just for CAFD's. It also works for other Psdzdata files (eg FAFP).
  4. FA / FP: viewer; tool includes mapping (eg 430 Inter Exter mirror anti dazzle). You can search loaded FA or entire FAFP (ie available options). FP viewer allows you to view options by Vehicle Profile (FP) without loading FA (Vehicle Order).
  5. FA Compare: like #2, but comparing FA's.
  6. FA-CAFD: You load individual ECU's *.ncd and can see how FA additions will affect (ie "what-if).
  7. SVT-CAFD: You load entire saved SVT file and see how FA changes will affect (ie "what-if).

You have CIC Head Unit. You can code VIM to unlimited Speed.

E-Sys 3.29 and 3.30 add nothing and are not supported by E-Sys Launcher, so using them isn't really an option.

You can use Symlinks. If using Premium Launcher, only E-sys must be installed in default location, but data folder can be anywhere; I have mine on secondary drives.

You configure in E-sys settings where data folder is located. It can be located on another partition or drive if you choose.

I think that you don't understand me, is it possible Data to be without psdzdata but with shortcut to psdzdata from ISTA, if I do programming to save about 90 GB space.

I understand; you can use symlinks. Only way you are saving that much space is that you are using PSDZ_Full, which is unnecessary unless you plan to program.

You can use one of these MKLINK GUI utilities to simplify creation of the Symbolic Link from "C:\Data\psdzdata" to "C:\Program Files (x86)\BMW\ISPI\TRIC\ISTA\PSdZ\data_swi\psdzdata" (ISTA+ Installaltion) or "C:\ProgramData\BMW\ISPI\data\TRIC\ISTA-P\BMW\Services\data\ecudata\psdzdata" (ISTA/P installation):

Mein Auto: X3
Hi guys,

I hadn't updated my ESys in a while, but I just did a fresh install of the latest recommended software. Running ESys 3.28.1, Launcher Premium 2.7.1.135, and psdzdata 61.4 (full). When I try to FDL code my X3 I am getting "." for all the values in the CAF-Viewer and FDL-Editor. I am selecting F25 in the launcher and as the target when connecting to the car in ESys. Any thoughts on why I'm seeing this?

Thanks!

You must use E-Sys Launcher to Open E-Sys, and not Open E-Sys directly.
