    HELP!! BMW e32 750il Diagnostics (tiny ADS)

    Hi everyone first time poster long time reader

    Can anyone help me with inpa/Edibas............... i have a old Dell D630 laptop running windows 7 with a true serial port, a 20pin connector with a tiny ads interface with a serial port plug, also running VMware virtual machine.

    I have purchased a program from DJWW auto diagnostics but no luck with the program i am having issues with corrupt files i believe whilst unpacking so i believe i am missing some important files

    I have read many posts on this and i am now very confused with all the different versions of INPA Ediabas and other programs that i might require like DIS, BMW SSS v32

    Can anyone please supply me a link to a working version for my 1991 e32 750il

    You may be better doing a search in the Diagnostic Software forum. Not sure if he is still active but I would look out for posts by David Mc who is in Queensland.

    Don't think you need VMWare for INPA. You will if you run DIS as that runs on UNIX in a virtual drive. IIRC, v44 was the last version to contain programming. HTH

    I have done some more research on here..... I am going to re install the program that i bought from DJWW I think the problem might be that the tiny ads serial port cable might need a special driver as im running this program a dell 630 laptop, the posts i have read i think this might be the problem. I have a usb K-DCAN cable i purchased off ebay (not compatible with my car e32) when i have this plugged in and open INPA/EDIABAS this cable is detected.

    thanks for the reply Whiskychaser

    I have been using a Dell 810 for many years without problems. You might check with your supplier if the software will run on Windows 7 as I use XP. Not sure you need to do this with INPA but I have to run ifhsvr32.exe before starting DIS. And IIRC, the first time you use the software you need to run adssetup.exe from the C prompt. It is in the ediabas/hardware/ads/ads32 folder and installs the driver for Windows NT 4.0. Not sure what cables you are using but in my experience, the carsoft ones don't have enough wires connected. As a result, the car is not identified automatically. You may know all this already but in my experience, stumbling around in the dark isn't much fun.
