INPA cfgdat files

hi all. thanks for all the information in this thread. i am hoping you guys can help with an issue i am having. when i run INPA, everything looks good except the list of chassis were not appearing. after some google searching, i found a thread where someone provided the text for the file INPA.INI that goes in the cfgdat folder. worked like a charm and i can select f9 for E90. but now, i get an error saying E90.ENG cannot be found, which is also supposed to be in the INPA/CFGDAT folder. after some more google searching, apparently, there is supposed to be a bunch of files in the CFGDAT folder which mine does not have. all of my programs were installed by the standard coding tools 2.11 file.

can someone with fully functional INPA please share the files in the INPA/CFGDAT folder with me?

INPA

Ok, I decided to try ncs expert even though I couldn't get INPA to work and I was able to successfully code window roll up from my key fob! So I think I am going to start trying to code other features.

I would still like to get INPA working properly and would appreciate any help anyone could provide.

There is information but the best information I've found is at the b m w c o d i n g website. There you will find a detailed tutorial and links to the software. There are also experts there who will answer questions when they want to. It seems like the biggest experts in coding get tired of answering questions from people starting out. They often either don't reply or answer in ways that are not helpful.

If you speak German it probably also helps since all the words in the software seem to be German.

But the bottom line is there is information that will allow you to be successful. But there is not the same sort of helpful chatty forum you find here. You will almost undoubtedly be frustrated at times. But if you keep after it, you can make some changes in your car.

I found all the software and other info but not on that site. Also, the Daten files are huge if you decide to download all of them. I would just do the platform your working on.

HELP!!!! I have killed by car!

Ok I have coding the car many times and felt pretty comfortable with NCSexpert. My 2010 128i was working great and then I thought I would code the mod for triple blink for the turn signals. So I changed the code from wert_01 to wert_02 and wrote the code to the mod. It was successful, no errors. I tried to test the car no function AT ALL from the switch.

So I said OK I'll just rewrite the ECU with my backup. I CANT! I tried to communicate with that ECU and I cant.

How do I fix this???? Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks!

Have you tried putting the car on a charger? I've read of people having experiences like this when their battery went dead while coding.
