  • If you use the browser to download files(not recommended) download files as a "standard download", NOT a ZIP format

  • Because the server contains large files, please use e.g JDownloader or Megasync.

  • Note: this is only our friendly tip, it may not work for everyone and you must purchase a paid account as a description in Terms of Sales which you agreed to BEFORE your purchase.

  • Mega offers a free account of 20GB but with bandwidth restriction. If you have an active Mega account, then move the files from our Mega account to yours and download them to your laptop.

  • The free version from Mega now has a download limit. You can use a VPN to keep changing your IP and use mega sync to download from your account. You have to exit and reopen the mega client after changing IP each time. Your bandwidth limit is due to your 100% grant to the downloader (so you do not have any available bandwidth yourself).

  • Tip: to download from Mega use jDownloader or Megasync with free-account will continue after a break! Please be patient!

  • Creating a free account, prevent your link from expiring!

  • Please login to your account via the web client and go to "My Account" - "Settings" - "Transfer Settings" - adjust it to not 100% as shown.

  • If you have a limit to downloading (changing IP can resolve such an issue)

  • To avoid errors! Please do not allow any extract files of "JDownloader”! (Switching off in the settings before starting the download). Do it yourself after downloading it.

  • The software has been tested regarding viruses - Trojans or similar malicious programs. Please turn off antivirus because some antivirus programs detect the file as a virus if you have susceptible applications (eg.AiCoder). Mega-Server does NOT allow placing infected files.

  • Your laptop should be not used for daily use; diagnostic programs don't need an antivirus program. Be aware; some programs will not work if your antivirus removes installation files detected as the virus. A good practice is to use Windows Defender but not in every case, the message about virus detection area. False-positive! To avoid errors, the installation of programs should be performed on a clean, genuine operating system.

BMW_ISTAP_3.68 xxx And onwards

 

  • Install Ediabas Patched, Java, vcredist 2010, vcredist 2013, vs90_piaredist, all net framework and ALL necessary tools. (folder tools)

  • ISTA-P must be installed on drive C:/ only! (Don't try to Unzip files! Just start .exe)

  • Install Networktool.exe, for K-DCAN cable. For ICOM don't need.

  • Restart PC.

  • Run BMW_ISPI_ISTA-P_SYS_3.68.0.800.exe

  • To run ISTA-P always use BMW ISTA-P Loader (activation in a text file) from the Tools folder. On the server has been placed 2 different Loaders,

  • ISTA-P Loader v6.4 For ICOM and ISTA-P Loader v6.1 For D-CAN Interface. (New ISTA-P Loader v6.4 version)

  • In Loader choose language, resolution, expert mode options and other features

  • Expert Mode password: istap

  • Ignore the message regarding screen resolution.

 

UPDATE

  • To install correctly, be sure don't change any of the original installation files that already exists (to put Expert Mode for example). If you have modified any file, will not be installed and will fail. All files in the current install version must be original. This is imperative to upgrade to the new version.

  • Any possible updates must be installed sequentially cannot skip to the latest update.

  • Put in the same folder and location all the files. (.exe Files) AND (.istap Files which are unzipped.)

  • Run EXE or MSI.

  • Make sure your system meets the minimum requirement.

  • Make sure to:

  • Turn off Windows Firewall Service

  • Run program as an Administrator

  • Those two things will eliminate many errors

 

Important

In the original installation is missing BMW.Taurus.WsmProvider.AgentBackend.dll in 

"ISTA-P\BMW\Environment\Wsm" 

Loader 6.4 fixed it by copying this dll in the folder. Loader 6.3 and lower not. You need to change in ISTA-P  application.xml 

68.0.800 to 3.68.0.800. Open the file with a notepad. Now you can use loader lower than the 6.4 version​

If you use loader 6.4as first, you do nothing and it works, and also with older loaders because loader 6.4 makes the missing file

BMW.Taurus.WsmProvider.AgentBackend.dll in "ISTA-P\BMW\Environment\Wsm

After that, you can run all older loaders.....

 

 

ICOM, ICOM A1 and Common ICOM A2 Firmware Update

Steps and Note:

  • Use Network cable to connect ICOM (ICOM A1 or Common version ICOM A2) with a computer, charge ICOM (ICOM A1 or Common version ICOM A2) with a 12V power adapter or connect ICOM with the BMW vehicle.

  • Open IE Internet Explorer, browse http://169.254.92.38:60080/, log in with username/password: root/NZY11502.

  • Click "Update Firmware", you will see ICOM firmware version information.

  • Choose file "ICOM-BootImage-xx-xx-xx.bin", set image type to SYSTEM, click "Send the file".

  • When it pops up "Write the image file to the flash?", Click "Yes", then the ICOM indicator light will turn red.

  • When it pops up "The SYSTEM IMAGE update was successful", click "Update Firmware".

  • Choose "ICOM-ApplicationImage-xx-xx-xx.bin", set the image type to APPLICATION, click "Send the file", it will take several minutes since the archive is a little bit large.

  • When it pops up "Write the image file to the flash?", Click "Yes", then the ICOM indicator light will turn red for the second time.

  • When it finishes upgrading, click "reboot" to restart the computer.

Important Note:

  • Setting up your computer to obtain an IP address automatically

  • Firstly choose the smaller file "ICOM-BootImage-xx-xx-xx.bin" , then set the image type to SYSTEM; Secondly, choose the bigger file "ICOM-ApplicationImage-xx-xx-xx.bin", then set image type to APPLICATION.

  • You can update the ICOM firmware via the ISTA-D Connection Manager.

  • IP: 169.254.33.45:60080 

  • PW: NZY1150263 for Icom A2

In the last ICOM Firmware, BMW has decided to close ssh, if you do not have the private key, also they have added RSA signed firmware, which means you cannot downgrade to an older firmware version because they are not signed.

On the server are 3 files:-

Use this if you *have* already upgraded to 03-15-02

ICOM_Restore.bin - a custom restore image that will restore to the latest firmware but unprotected.

Use the files below, if you have *not* already updated to 03-15-02

ICOM-BootImage-01-26-00c.bin - this contains the *FIX* for ssh.

ICOM-ApplicationImage-01-41-02c.bin - this contains a patch to bypass the need for signed firmware.

No other aspects of the firmware have been changed and it is 100% safe to use as the original firmware.

Check folder called    " Tools"  where has been attached helpful info.

E-sys Program

Unfortunately, according to the Terms of Sale, we do not support the E-sys program at all.
Everything that you need to start the program has been attached in the folder called " launcher solution" E-sys on VM ready to use!

SP-DATEN

  • Updating new SP-Daten files can be a pain. A lot of copy, paste and adjust files. Manually and/or with Total Commander.

  • This tool will automatically update your Daten files for you. Only replacing the files that require replacing and skipping the files that don’t. Very easy!!

  • MSCOMCTL Error Fix:

  • For those who get an MSCOMCTL.OCX error… Please download the MSCOMCTL Error Fix.zip and follow the instructions

  • First, we need to set our default folders for NCSExpert, WinKFP, and EDIABAS.

  • Once all the folders are set we can now proceed to update our SP Daten. Doing this by selecting the “Select SP-source” button and then selecting the folder with the new SP Daten. I always like to start with the earliest model which is E36.

  • The path should look something like mine in the screenshot.

  • Now that we have set our SPDaten path we can now select the “Update SP-Daten” button.

  • Only all NEWER files will be copied from:

…\SP-DATEN-Exx\ECU –> …\EDIABAS\ECU
…\SP-DATEN-Exx\SGDAT –> …\EC-APPS\NFS\SGDAT
…\SP-DATEN-Exx\SGDAT –> …\NCSEXPER\SGDAT
…\SP-DATEN-Exx\DATEN –> …\NCSEXPER\DATEN\Exx
Also, update of files in …\NCSEXPER\DATEN

  • You will notice the files that have been replaced will display update –> **.** and the ones that did not require updating will display remain –> **.**

  • In my case, as displayed in the image below all will show remain because I have already updated them.

  • Now repeat the same steps for WinKFP…

  • Select the “Update WinKFP” button, and all folders will be copied and replaced from:…\SP-DATEN-Exx\DATA –> …\EC-APPS\NFS\DATA

  • also, update of SGIDC.AS2 in …\EC-APPS\NFS\DATA\GDATEN to adjust the “long lines.”

  • Backup’s of all folders are saved as …\name_date_time

  • Once completed… repeat the same steps for all base models so from E36 to E89. Now you have successfully updated your NCSExpert and WinKFP with the latest SP-Daten files.
