Cool [BMW Diagnostics] VirtualBox WindowsXP

* Rheingold 3.41
* Inpa 5.0.6
* INPA Fxx Series v2
* EDIABAS 7.3.0
* NCS Expert 4.0.1 (pass: repxet)
* AK90
* NCS Dummy 0.6.0.7
* Tool32 4.0.3
* WinKFP 5.3.1
* SP-DATEN 53.3
* BMW Coding Tool 2.5.0
* Dr.Gini - B014
* NavCoder 2.9.18*3
* BMW PassThru Tool

Additional info for Pre-FL cars:

To connect to all modules via K-LINE (example: Pre-FL X3 petrol): OBD-II pin7 and pin8 must be connected.
You can either solder 7+8 or buy OBD2 to USB + switch
OBD-II pinout: http://pinoutguide.com/CarElectronic...c_pinout.shtml

I'm using this VirtualBox on Windows 10 laptop. Operational tasks and diagnostics are working flawlessly.

Note. To people who are about to write ECUs. Test and make sure you have dumps! USB interface is very tricky on different manufacturers and can lead to unfortunate results.

What software would you use to perform ecu and module upgrades?

I also need to clear adaptions in my 2004 e83. What is the software you would you use to perform these tasks?

I have BimmerGeeks cable on the way.

ISTA-D is perfect for clearing adaptations.

I would not recommend module upgrades.

can also use simple INPA to clear individual or all adaptations

>many forget that you can simply load old faithful simple INPA and clear one or all adaptations ....especially good for older x's like an 04

Do you have a check sum for that 18gig file? I've been downloading from Mega the past 24 hours and don't know if I got it all yet and its still timing out due to bandwidth.

Since I never used Mega before I don't know how it works..What happened is this... I created an account then installed desktop syncher, then installed the Mozilla add-on helper.
I went to you OVA file by clicking the link and then indicated I wanted to download to my HDD.
It went about 12 hours and I had something called .getxfer.1260.mega (17gig) but no OVA file. then I noticed my "online account" had the bmw-tool file in my folder so I clicked on the mega synch and the download process seemed to be started all over again . I thought it was decrypting the xfer file.

shortly after the above, the OVA file showed up in on my HDD as the full 18gig but as time went on the xfer... file is now down to 7.5+ gig after running all night. From my account it looks like I am d/l the ova file a second time (it says 7.5 of 17.x gig downloaded and 2 files to my credit)- so to be safe, I copied the 18gig bmw-tool.ova file (already in my hdd folder) to another location in case it gets overwritten. clear as mud?

So it would be nice if you could provide a checksum to validate the downloaded file (either encrypted or after decryption if it stays the same) and maybe some simple instructions on what to do using Mega (even their pdf doesn't mention d/l) .

thanks
sd

Ok it looks like I was downloading it a second time, so i stopped that. I also got the Oracle Virtualbox to install. I assume once I get that installed I just open the .ova file from VBox?
I understand I will have to get a cable to hook to the car. Right now I just want to play with the sW to get familiar with it. I don't have a laptop with anything newer than XP but have a bunch of extra desktops w/ win 7-10-Linux so I plan on putting Vbox on either Win 7prox64 or maybe 10 xhome64. Any tips you can suggest?

From my experience INPA could not do what ISTA-D did in many occasions.

I will check the checksum later.

You basically have to import the .OVA file in VirtualBox and initialize MAC address.

I can tell you from experience, that if you have incorrect bandwidth settings or over-sensitive USB port- you can erase your Ecu and not upgrade it. I had to call in mechanic with his gear to fix my Ecu. I suspect Lenovo's USB ports were messing with me.

Thanks ... a-lot
Looks like I may have to learn some German for a couple of them
The file byte count matched and it started right up in VB without any issues, my calculated sha-256 also matched so I'm gtg.

I see in the 'import virtual appliance' dialog there is a check box to 'reinit MAC addy of all network cards' ... is that twhat you were referring to above?
Ii will take me a month or two of reading and testing before I actually hook it to my car and I'll heed your warning about the ECU and baud rate...
Is there a particular pre-made cable available to hook (USB or db-9 Serial??) into the OBD connector?
I might just setup this win-7 box in the workshop and get a long connecting cable as laptops are scarce around here.

You can use BMW ENET cable, Serial or USB. At the moment it's supposed to use COM1 (USB-Serial converter), but you can always re-configure Ediabas or Rheingold.

Connect your USB cable to the laptop. Install drivers or the drivers will be added automatically. Afterwards check the Virtualbox right-bottom corner and forward USB device. It will have some weird naming, but you will figure.

BMW ENET for F-series. You can search for guides online.

Thanks for much for this, it's great to have it in one package

Is there a way around the prompt for the rheingold license? I asks me to enter the license key but I can't find one that's the same version as the one in the image.

Thanks.
