This is an attempt at writing a comprehensive guide on how to correctly load up NCSEXPERT. With time it should be fairly complete but for now a rough draft should get most everyone started.
You will need (INSTALL FIRST) EDIABAS 6.4.3 and EDIABAS 6.4.7 (RUN THE SETUP.EXE UNDER PROGRAM INSTALLATION FIRST, REBOOT THEN RUN REFERENZE/INSTALL/INSTPROG.EXE AND UPGRADE) installed on your machine.
and V40 e46 progman files found here E46.zip
I would also recommend to use any of the included profiles to read modules and exclusively use revtors profile (ATTACHED) (or make your own) to do any coding. Once you are comfortable coding modules you can run revtors profile exclusively for both read and write.
To install the profile copy the .pfl into NCSEXPER/PFL folder or EC-APPS/NCSEXPER/PFL
Once, you have downloaded the V40 files mount the iso using DAEMON tools. Then browse to the daten folder. Inside it you will find LADEN.bat. Run it and choose yes on all the prompts.
This effectively updates NCSexpert files to prevent CHASSIS is faulty and VIN is faulty errors.
Use repxet as the password under file/edit profile to create your own profile.
COAPI-1020: can not open file for reading
Fix: open up notepad, choose save as, name the file FSW_PSW.MAN and drop in the path shown above or your WORK folder. (MAKE SURE IT'S NOT SAVED AS A .TXT file)
Additionally, I've attached a copy of NCS with all the above steps shown above. Simply delete or rename your C:\NCSEXPER folder and extract the zip in its place.
Should work error free but as always if any come up please let me know!
