BMW Standard Tools is the software suite distributed by BMW Group that contains several interoperating applications and drivers, including NCS Expert, WinKFP, NFS, INPA, Tool32, and others. Here is the free download link for V2.12. A PC (Operating system: Win XP 32 bit /VMware Win 7 32 or 64 bit).
Set COM port for INPA cable . Connect the INPA DCAN cable with PC Install device driver Come to My Computer>>Device Manager>>Ports (COM&LPT). In this case, it’s COM5.
We need to change this in the obd.ini file locatedin the c:\ediabas\bin folder.
Right-click on your INPA cable driver for example mine is labeled “USB Serial Port” and click on properties.
Now in the property window click on the advanced tab.
Now every driver is different but the important part is the settings such as latency timer and received and transmit bytes.
See pic below for the ideal settings. You may also change the COM port number here as well for tutorial I left it at 5.
Once your changes are done we can proceed by clicking OK to accept the changes. No close all windows to return to the desktop. Browse to C:\EDIABAS\BIN and find file obd.ini andopen it with an editor (e.g Notepad). The First 3 lines will look like this….
Need to change the Port to reflect our INPA cable which in our caseis COM port 5.
So change it to look like this…. NOTE: Remember which USB port you connected your cable to as plugging it into a different USB port will allocate the INPA cable to a different COM port and neither tool will see the cable until the original USB port is used again or changed in device manager and obd.ini as mentioned above.
Now to test if your cable installed correctly.
Plug it into the vehicle’s OBD port and openINPA.
Step 6: SPDATEN Files . Download and install SPDaten files (always recommend the latest) in this case it is 50.2 until I finish zipping and upload SPDatens 51.0 and upload it to share.
(Follow the instructions provided at the end of the blog labeled “How to start WinKFP” which will explain how to import the SPDaten files to WinKFP).
Once downloaded you can now . **EDITED 10-12-2013**. For NCSExpert to install or update the data files, copy the files from SP-daten-E##\daten tothe C:\NCSEXPER\DATEN\E##\ (where E## is whatever chassis you’reupdating).
You will also want to copy the files from SP-daten-E##\SGDAT to C:\NCSEXPER\SGDAT (they’re not separated into different chassis in NCS Expert, so you just want to copy and paste everything to that directory.
Overwrite everything it asks about). Then copy the files from SP-daten-E##\ECU to C:\EDIABAS\ECU. After copying the data files toc:\NCSEXPER\DATEN\E## copy the following files to the following locations:. copy C:\NCSEXPER\DATEN\E##\*.000C:\NCSEXPER\DATEN\copy C:\NCSEXPER\DATEN\E##\*.DAT C:\NCSEXPER\DATEN\copy C:\NCSEXPER\DATEN\E##\*.ASC C:\NCSEXPER\DATEN\. After installation, the directory (Drive letter):\EC-APPS\NFS\SGDAT contains file CABI.h only and doesn’t contain files, required for working.
Mount the Progman disk in virtual drive (or insert in usual DVD-drive), extract all files SP-daten-Exx.rar from directory (Drive letter):\CIP-Installer\bin, each one in its own directory.(You must get directories like SP-daten-Exx).
Now copy all *.IPO files from every directory (Drive letter):\SP-daten-Exx\sgdat to directory (Drive letter):\EC-APPS\NFS\SGDAT.For this purpose better use Total Commander, it allows overwriting elder fileswith newest.
This directory now looks like this:. In the same way refresh directory (Drive letter):\EDIABAS\Ecu with files taken from (Drive letter):\SP-daten-Exx\ecu 6.Run WinKFP.
Choose “Import/Export – Import – Assemly line data” and import all data needed from directories (Drive letter):\SD-daten-Exx\DATA Details how to import assembly line data are givenin official manual for WinKFP.
After importing the data, copy all files from directory (Drive letter):\SD datenE70\DATA\gdaten to directory (Drive letter):\EC-APPS\NFS\DATA\GDATEN, overwriting all existing files.
Note: If you use Progman v.30 for updating WinKFP, it has error in file \GDATEN\Sgidc.as2.
Simply open this file with Notepad and delete line 165. WinKFP is ready for programming.

With the classic toolset for BMW (Ediabas and Co.) some useful things can be done.
From coding to the error memory and flashing the individual control units.
Unfortunately the software to be used is for the most part not freely available or is very expensive.
Therefore it can usually only be obtained illegally.
In addition, some expert knowledge is necessary, which must be obtained before.
Either an ICOM (recommended) or a classic OBD cable with ELM327 chipset is required.
1 Series (E81, E82, E87, E88). 3 Series (E36, E46, E90, E91, E92, E93).
Classic way (E-Models)
5 Series (E39, E60, E61, E63, E64). 7 Series (E38, E65, E66).
X1, X3, X5 and X6 (E53 E84, E83, E70, E71, E72).
For older vehicle models an OBD2 to OBD1 20 PIN adapter may be necessary.
Ediabas serves as an interface between the OBD adapter or ICOM and the individual programs for coding your BMW, reading error memories, and more.
This software library is used to interpret or create the *.GRP and *.PRG data for transmitting to the OBD adapter.
Tool32 or EDIABAS ToolSet 32 is an swiss army knife.
It can be used to read the fault memory of individual control units, reset the service and carry out individual functions of the control units (training the battery, configuring new injectors, calibrating the steering angle, testing the speedometer, and so on).
You can also use it to code your BMW. For example, you can re-program the fuel consumption indicator (KVA) into an oil temperature indicator.
For instructions see here (German). With some background knowledge, NCS Expert can be used to change a wide variety of ECU settings, in technical terms simply code them.
NCS for Dummies simplifies the use of NCS Expert. Or often found in forums: “NCS Dummy taking the expert out of NCS Expert“.
With INPA you can retrieve the fault memory of your car and also display individual parameters from the control units.
For example the battery voltage, engine speed, intake temperature, oil temperature and much more.
You need WinKPF to change and replace (flash) the firmware of your ECUs.

INPA on BMW E46
Usually only all ECUs in the vehicle can be flashed to the same “level” version.
