any luck with bmw scanner 1.3.6 tool?

I have been reading threads on this "tool" and seem to see that its use is pretty limited. Since they are so cheap I got one off eBay and was looking to figure out an intermittent code and also see if I could set the auto-locking feature for the door locks.

Despite reading many people having issues getting it to connect, it runs fine on a Mac laptop with windows running in Parallels, also using a USB to serial adaptor (prolific 2303). I can read codes that are in decimal and hex and also clear them. I can't seem to locate any useful resource on the codes though and nothing on the auto-lock programming although I've seen it claimed that this software will do this.

Any insight appreciated, thanks in advance. I'll probably end up doing the key coding at the dealer and this was a $40 experiment as after hours of googling haven't turned up much in the way of documentation etc.

Thanks again.
