One of my blog readers sent the e-mail to ask how to install BMW INPA software on win10.I searched and found the solution provided by forum members.
Procedures of BMW INPA Install on WIN10:
Install the drivers for INPA K+D-CAN cable (version with FTDI FT232RL chip only).
Disconnect from the Internet because it is possible that the drivers are installed from Windows Update (if you want to use the latest home FTDICHIP then disconnect or reinstall) why run the executable CDM 21216_setup.exe; It is compatible with 64-bit versions of Windows 7, If necessary, you can download the latest version according to the OS on the siteFTDICHIP
This is an interface / cable VCP (Virtual COM Port) so there are two features and therefore an installation in 2 phases if done manually
1 – Cable driver
2 – VCP driver if using the automatic executable (.exe) offered on the site, then the 2 self install a result it’s easier and without going through the Device Manager => then plug the INPA cable into a USB port NOTE WELL PORT IDENTIFY THIS CAR ALONE WILL WORK AFTER SETTING IT WILL THEREFORE ALWAYS CONNECT THE CABLE ON THE PORT in Device Manager there will be a new entry: “COM and LPT ports” / sérial USB Port (COM3) eg for now Then you must configure the port that will emulate the virtual COM port 9 (eg. Default for Ediabas 7.3 patched) but it’s tune to your install Open Device Manager, choose COM Ports / USB serial port / port settings / advanced / set “COM 9” and the latency to “1” finally install BMW Standard Tools, all versions are not compatible with win 7 and 64-bit architectures, so use the BMW STD Tools version 2.12, which includes a recent version INPA 5.0.6 and 7.3.0 Ediabas.
