everything you need is there.
Its 45 bucks the other cable the coders used to recommend
is one stop electronics which was 100.
The bimmergeeks cable is more stable and faster.
Yes you can get 20 dollar cables on ebay but are you willing
to gamble on them being any good for 20 to 25 bucks difference.
Bottom line is a K/D can cable.

Thanks !!
This is the cable I'm ordering. I'll be using just laptop IPNA with this cable. I don't need anything else, right?

That cable and the download from Bimmergeeks.net will
get you two forms of diagnostics and all the coding and programming
ability you will ever need.( Inpa and Ista D)

You can use a Windows PC with any operating system from xp to win 10.

If you use Windows 10 the command prompt is now the Power shell.
Right click on start and always use the admin version.

Also these are helpful

I suggest you vist the coding forums online for DIY's
one of which is
https://www.e90post.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=368

I suggest you set up Ista d to. Its a better program and all in English.
It's like having a shop manual with guided troubleshooting and a searchable database.

There is no program called INPA on the Bimmergeeks website.

It's work to install it because it's pirated. You want the $10,000 software to install easily? Buy it.

Figured so, I didnt DL from there due to the fact they were charging me for DL bandwidth....so I was certain I had incomplete or bad files.

I am getting my Protool WIFI adapter in the mail today and have already purchased the app for Diagnostics...

Thanks for responding.

My download stopped too. It said, exceeded bandwidth or something like that. You can pay or wait few hours and after a few hours, it will start to download again. I opted to wait. And it eventually downloaded it all.

don't know whats going on with my links they worked before .
I noticed when I invoked them from inside the copied comments they
didn't work to. But they are working from my shortcuts list in firefox.

Will try again.

I tested them by clicking on the above and it worked.
I suggest saving them for reference.

They worked from entry 4 where I first put them up apparently something happens
when you requote that doesn't allow them to work right from the quoted area.

I didn't do anything special to my PC's anytime
I installed Inpa or Ista from xp to win 10 just
made sure I had enough space on the hard drives.
The old xp laptop would not have had enough space
for ista.
