After dealing with installation issues for the better part of this afternoon, I determined that the files in the OP are corrupted/missing elements to make everything work. After digging around the internet I came across this link, which is about 34 pages long spanning nearly eight years of people posting and contributing to the particular thread:
https://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1204192


The OP has a link: https://www.mediafire.com/folder/a7jvirbs559ib/Software which contains installation files and instructions to install INPA, NCS-Expert Tool, WinKFP, Tool32, EDIABAS and BMW Coding Tool. Everything installed perfect on my WinXP machine along with the e53 daten files: https://mega.nz/#F!plp2gCJS!NDWXdf7OjFC0bTTiwyf0Ug which need to be extracted using this program here: http://www.7-zip.org/. The pdf instructions are straight forward up until the OP mentions using the K+DCAN cable. I have the BMW Scanner v1.4.0 as recommended by pretty much all of you here with E53's.


My question; is there any further setup in any of the software listed above to utilize this scanner? A special setting for latency/connection/time out in WinXP or? I have properly installed the drivers that came with the cable and the cable when plugged into USB port 1 is recognized and named as "BMW Scanner".

The COM settings are defined inside some ini file.


Search your C: for "obd.ini", and look in there.

Ok, to the best of my recollection I didn't have to do anything special for BMW Scanner 1.4.0, just unzip, install, plug in and use (basically).


For INPA, NCSExpert, etc, etc, and the cable that is used with those applications, I belive you need to do this:


1. Go to Device Manager.
2. With Cable plugged in, find the "USB Serial Port", make it COM1 (or any free one, your choice). Also make latency 1msec while you're there.
3. Now go to C:/EDIABAS/bin/OBD.ini and change the COM port to COM1 as well. (It can be any COM port, as long as they're matching with step 2 actually).



.ini files can be opened with most text editors, just right click and choose "open with" and choose your .txt editor of choice, edit the .ini file cirectly and save and close.


Note - the cable used for BMW Scanner 1.4.0 will not work with the INPA, NCSExpert, etc, etc apps, that is specifically (I believe) the K+DKAN cable you mention above and the cable used for INPA, NCSExpert, etc, etc will not work for BMW Scanner either, they are not interchangeable that I have seen.

And I could also never get my INPA Cable (K-Line) drivers to co-exist with my BMW Scanner cable drivers, so I ended up using two laptops (well, one is a real laptop, the other is a WinXP VM on a MacBook).

This makes more sense. I was unaware that INPA, EDIABAS etc. have their own cable - the K+DCAN cable. I was also unaware that the BMW Scanner v1.4.0 comes with its own software, a single program. That clears up a lot of confusion which isn't clearly stated on other forums/posts. Can anyone recommend a proper cable to utilize INPA? The OP's link expired long long ago.
