**** Download and read "ISTA+ Installation Guide" PDF file BEFORE downloading or attempting to install ****

EDIABAS Installer is included in the Tools folder. Install only if you need it and you don't have a previous installation of EDIABAS. Make sure you configure your cable/ICOM settings in EDIABAS.ini file. If you need help with configuring your cable and/or ICOM, refer to the Beginners Guide to ISTA+ located here

Megadownloader is now added to the download. Use it to download large files from Mega. You need 60GB of available space before extraction AND 36GB of space for the program.

CLICK TO DOWNLOAD

Version Info - includes English & German DB's.

Don't clutter this thread with requests. Issues with installation and other information should be discussed either in your own thread or in the "Beginner's Guide to ISTA+" thread. Don't PM asking for links.

Is there another way to download this? Mega is ridiculous with the quota and HTML5 storage error crap. :tsk:
Just get a paid account. It is cheap, only €9.99 per month.

Solved

Megadownloader worked..much better than Mega's webpage interface. For everyone else with the HTML5 or quota problems, open the link and download the Megadownloader executable first and install it. Copy the download link with the Megadownloader window open and it will begin downloading without quota or HTML5 issues.

Megadownloader is the way to go if you do not have a paid account, although many have said Megadownloader stopped bypassing the bandwidth restrictions. But if it worked for you, maybe it is a cat and mouse game between Megadownloader and MEGA.

Mega patched the bypass a month ago so unless you pay to use Mega, or you use a VPN to get a new IP address every 5GB of download (and this is going to be about three to six of those swaps, depending) the link is not as useful anymore.

I even tried going to Rheingold's site to just pay them for it but they don't appear to actually sell software anymore (or their site is just completely jacked (their site is super jacked)). I just get "Sorry, the requested product is not available" on every software download in their storefront.

looks like I'm just gonna have to code my trailer hitch the old fashioned way. NCS expert it is.

Shawn suggested getting a cheap Mega account. The issue of Mega throttling bandwidth should be discussed elsewhere.

As for "Rheingold's site"...there's no such thing as Rheingold making BMW software. BMW makes BMW software and distributes it. Just because the company name is Rheingold doesn't make it authentic.

That said, Rheingold is not for coding. Its for diagnostics and programming for F series and beyond, which isn't the same as coding with NCS Expert.

Hello,

i read in some other forumpost that the newer versions (over 4.03.31) of ISTA-D does not show the complete manual to fix problems.
Is this problem still in the above recommended version 4.05?

thanks for your information.

License warning!
Unfortunately your local copy is not activated yet or has expired. It's necessary to activate your local installation via an authenticated license. Please follow the steps in the next dialogs.
. No use of this software in source code or binary form without permission. For further information contact ( [email protected] ).

This is as far as i got on Windows 7, followed the guide although was confused to the comment about the x32 bit windows 7 needing SP1 and also why x86 folder exists and why would someone use it? as far as rEGEDIT and Standalone Regedit

So i need help is what im getting at there is nowhere to enter in the license information ? only two buttons exist on mainfraime of ISTAGUI is the print and X on top right nowhere to enter in license.

I ran the Unblocker first, it was successful, rebooted comp and did not get the option of unblocking Ista-7z in properties. Although continued to install and got this message with no prompt to add the license code.

Recently Deleted Rhiengold from C drive and ran the Registry Cleaner started at step 1 to my surprise no Unblock in properties again. Help! :)

Windows 7 x64 and SP1 on my Toshiba.

Many thanks to the threadstarter! I opened a free MEGA account, transferred the big Rheingold file to it and downloaded it from there with no speed problems. After getting the rest of the files directly I installed everything on a W10 laptop with no problem. The dialogue for inserting license is shown when proceeding after the message quoted in post #13. So, thanks again! Now I can finally open the park brake to change rear brake pads, despite Munich's efforts to make it hard for a non-pro... :bigpimp: :thumbup:

Good Evening,

is there a chance to integrate the german database to the package ?
Or maybe create a extra package ?

Greetings

Can you provide a link for getting the free MEGA account?

Thanks

@745D: It's the link that Almaretto posted. See attached how it looks for me; but perhaps that may differ when called from other countries.

@dmann93: everything needed for running the program in german IS included. Go to settings and choose German.
