The driver for the USB serial cable was already installed before I began Mike's Easy BMW Tools setup. I plugging in the cable, set to COM1. All software is installed on desktop, then when I launch INPA it throws an error before it can boot up saying...

"program can't start because api32.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem."

I'm guessing OS's running off an SSD is an impossibility? This only works with Windows 7 or higher running an HDD?

It's supposed to work on any Windows 8.1 64bit and higher including Windows 10 with a HDD.

SSD users have reported issues, i don't have a SSD equipped laptop so i didn't have a chance to verify or dispute. You can try on a laptop with HDD and see if it gives you the same result

I uninstalled then reinstalled but I'm continuing to receive the same driver error during installation then a separate error when trying to load INPA from desktop icon. All hope is lost.

I have been using ISTA-D for a few years, but was not able to find there some of the test, like Vanos test for example.

The collective wisdom on the fora I was/am registered is that DIS is a better tool for our car, but I never successfully managed to downgrade to DIS.

I had a few attempts, at some point even was able to read few errors with DIS, but nothing consistent.

At this point I get error 200.159 on my DIS installation, but NCS Expert, ISTA-D, ISTA-P are running fine however on the same laptop with the same cable (SSD by the way).

I do get some error in INPA now, but when DIS worked on my laptop, INPA did too and it was on the same SSD by the way.

Anyone have DIS and ISTA-P running on the same laptop? Or, alternatively, can you run Vanos test from ISTA-D (or trigger aux fan for example)?

Hi, all. I hail from e30 land and am new to the forum.

I am trying to get this package to do adaptations on a MINI r50. Does this include or must I do extra?
Thank you for your work.

what do you mean by "do adaptions"?

this INPA package will allow you to clear adaptions and read out errors of your car.
