No Chassis Options in INPA

Good Day All

I have been trying for two days to get INPA working on my Windows 10 64 bit laptop from the files in the first post. I have been all over this site and the internet looking for a solution. I can install everything but when I open INPA I don't have any chassis selections.

I'm thinking it may have something to do with these steps:
● All files in “daten” → C:\NCSEXPER\DATEN\XXX (where XXX is your
chassis code)
● All files in “sgdat” → C:\NCSEXPER\SGDAT
● All files in “ecu” → C:\EDIABAS\ECU
Do not copy the folders themselves, only the files inside them. Choose “Copy
and Replace” to resolve conflicts.


Or the INPA.ini file??

Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Cosmo727, have you searched bimmerforums.com? There is a LOT more information there on INPA than here. Although there is a lot here, there is even more there. They might have a little more info on win 10. I set mine up on an XP machine all by itself. Worked through a lot of issues right at first but it's been far too long ago for me to be very useful to you. Sorry, I can't tell you more!

Thanks for the reply thewizz

I have been to bimmerforums and have tried a few things from there with no luck. I even installed Mike's Easy BMW Tools. It was an extremely easy installation. The problem with that one was that there were no MINI chassis installed, just BMWs. I then tried to copy the Datens from the first post in this thread into Mike's Easy BMW Tools. I'm not sure if I was doing it right because every time I made a change the program seemed to re-install itself back to original.

Still looking for suggestions to get INPA working on my Windows 10 64 bit laptop.

I remember when I installed, you must run it in 'compatibility mode' for Windows.
Right click on the programme or exe file
Click on properties
Compatibility Tab
Check, run this programme in compatibility mode.

This might help

Don't think I chose any particular mode, PC did it for me.

I finally got it going!! Thanks to all for the replies!! I found another installation file on bimmerforums which was relatively painless to install.
Special thanks to thewizz for mentioning bimmerforums so that I could revisit there to get this thing going.

My next task will be to get DIS/GT1 working....wish me luck!!!

Your EDIBIAS is probably old and needs a more recent version. Helped me get rid of errors.

Any way you could send me that forum link? I've been searching and can't find one that will work. Also did you get NCSExpert to work on windows 10? I'm running a x64 OS so I know it might not, but I have a separate computer with xp on it where I could install it again.

Hey everyone.

Would love it if someone could help me out.

I installed NCSExpert on my laptop (Windows 10, 64bit), and yes, I know they say NCS wont work on 64bit but I thought i'd give it a go anyways.

The install process went fine and exactly as described in the manual, but NCS would not load saying it is not the right software for my operating system.
OK, thats probably why they say it wont work on 64bit.

So I tried running INPA.
It seems to connect with my car as I can see the 2 black circles of battery and ignition and they respond when I turn the car on or off.
But, I cant connect to any of the modules. keeps giving me an error saying "ÏFH-0009 No response from control unit".

Is this also affected by the operating system? or is it something else?

Vehicle is Cooper S 2012 LCI
Cable is the recommended one from ecutool.com
Im trying to program the car work with the xenon retrofit kit.

Any help would be appreciated.

Maybe someone knows of another software that could help me program what I want and would work on Windows 10 64 bit.
Or maybe a better cable?

I really dont know and i'm quite lost.

thank you!
