    How to setup a BMW Diagnostic Computer v.2 > With Files doityourself

    So....Charlie was kind enough and had enough foresight to save files to his computer prior to deletion by a defector. In the process of uploading them now. Thanks to Boss for upgrading my upload limit to make this possible for the Community.

    File names have the page numbers of the thread I believe, so reading them in order should make sense. Additional data point is that you can't upload a "Zipped" file. I did not know that.

    MACOSX files are in post #3.

    Enjoy.

    Actually, they will all work on PCs as well. All these files are saved in .pdf format so if you have Adobe Acrobat Reader then you should be able to look at them

    I just downloaded a file from the PC list and it worked on my mac

    Excellent!
    I have an old Dell Latitude D630 with XP and a DB9 serial port that I use for programming with other software (NavCoder, Intravee, etc).

    I plan to get NCS Expert going ASAP. This cable just came in from Romania which supposedly will work. It also came with NCS Expert and some instructions on a DVD. I'll post more once i get things going.

    thanks for this. Most of this is all scattered over the internet but its nice to have it all laid out for ya. I read another place where the editing of the INI file was different and let to my APItest to have a host error . I followed this one and manage to get the API test to test out! Just have to wait till tomorrow to get on a charger to see if this works!

    APItest was working so it meant the GT1 could read out of the virtual machine and onto physical ports. I got stuck where I couldn't detect a diaghead from GT1. The GT1 could be pinged from Vista cmd prompt but it didn't see it from the GT1 side.

    I found out you need a diaghead install as well. (should be on the EASY GT Folder on 4share)

    I had to run the diaghead software. Hit the run on the diaghead software then turn on the IFHSrv.exe. The boot up GT1 and setup the connect the diaghead under adminstration connect diaghead. I got it to read my vin automatically. I didn't have anymore time today to short test but it looks like it should be working soon! I don't have my driver seat as well so driver seat memory is not working and I know programming is out of the question. (No real reason for me to use it since I do have access to ISSS at work)
