I didn't read through the first post but the instructions seemed way too long. The kit from Romania is idiot-proof and works on XP, Windows 7, and 8.
It probably works on Windows 10 too, just need to confirm with the seller. Besides INPA, NCS, and Ediabas, it also includes a few other programs like SSS and Winkfap (probably spelled that wrong).

So I downloaded this version and it works. But when I go to download the patch to put E53 in the front, google drive says "Sorry, file infected with virus" and stops me. Am I missing something? How to I download it?
Wow!!

Had no clue. So your buying a free program that you can't read. Anyhoo, this version is in English so you can read it!

BMW USB OBD Diagnostic Cable Inpa Ediabas Dis V57 SSS V32 Progman GT1 | eBay
With this cable, did you have to cut it open and solder pins #7 & #8 together and/or some other hack to get the E53 to show up?

The link for a cable in the OP is to an expired ebay listing, and I would rather get something that is more plug and play. I saw a demo on YouTube for the 1.4 BMW scanner tool with PA Soft and that looked simple to use, but unfortunately I have read that only works up to 2003 models and I have a 2006. There is so much conflicting info out there on the scanning/coding options and much of it seems out of date, but this is a pretty recent thread. I just ordered a BAFX bluetooth OBD2 scanner so I could try out Torque Pro app on my Android phone, but I don't think that will help with what I need to do, so I'm looking for the right cable to work with a laptop as well.

I don't want to do anything real advanced; my main goals are the following, in order of priority:

* Turn off cold check for my halos

* Reset adaptation for after I change my transfer case fluid

* Display transmission temp for when I change my transmission fluid
(I just ordered an infrared thermometer for this, which may work fine)

* May want to change the window roll up options, etc..

* Display and clear codes (Android Torque Pro says it clears codes, but PC based app may be better


My work laptop has Win 7, but I don't want to screw anything up on that, so I'll probably buy a cheap Win XP laptop on Craigslist to dedicate for this and for something to keep in the garage for looking up things on the web.

There are only two posted, and yes both of them work. I have both cables running all this software and it works great.

I found this from the original thread posted on another site.....

"I updated the pack, for anyone that downloaded it after 7/16/2015. I had made a small mistake on the Step 3 self extracting archive that updates everything. It is all good now.

To fix any potential issues from a pack installed in between that timeframe, re-run Step 3 of the installation."

This was posted a couple days ago.

Do you have to solder pins together on the one from the Romanian seller (catatefy)?
