EasyInstall software with full support for BMW DK (Yellow Head), OPS, OPPS, USB KCAN, DCAN and Serial ADS Cable Interfaces!
NEW! We have added access to the BMW and MINI WDS (Wiring System Diagrams) to the website!
We are offering access to Dealer and Factory BMW and Mini Software specifically designed to diagnose and program your BMW or Mini that was built from the 1988 through 2009*** model years. Using this system you can Diagnose problems and custom configure your cars optional parameters (such as drive away door lock, chimes, day time running lights, HVAC system changes and much more depending upon your cars capabilities). All this installed on your own computer with your correct Diagnostic Interface for your BMW or Mini. All this provides you with the same software tools the dealer uses, thus saving you expensive dealer diagnostic fees.
*** Later model cars possible using the update for the EDIABAS (factory) tools that is available after the installation is completed! (Current data included for E-series BMW's and R-series Mini's through 02/2016.)
Our PSS Custom Installation takes all the guesswork out of installing all the software - from the required support applications (except the PDF reader or VMware Workstation/Player) to the correct configuration of the EDIABAS no special steps are required by you. You provide a laptop or notebook with a reasonably clean copy of Windows, and this system will connect to your car and work the first time, and every time.
The BMW and Mini DIS GT1 and SSS Progman interfaces have been modified to allow the user to get more out of the system. The SSS Progman runs on Windows XP embedded, and we have altered it to allow easy printing inside the SSS, to allow drag and drop to the host system, have re-included the guest OS with the start up and shut-down using Windows alone. The DIS GT1 (both v44 and v57) allow the user to print pdf's while continuing to use the DIS GT1, have the TIS already installed and are ready to run 'out of the box'. The DIS GT1 and SSS Progman communicate with the host system (and the BMW Mini or Rolls Royce) the first time, every time.
Printing to the host computer from the GT1 DIS is included - works on Windows XP through Windows 8.1 64-Bit. The files are pre-configured to print to a PDF file, and then are saved to your host computer for later review or printing (since most of us do not have printers near our cars). Printing from the SSS Progman is also handled, but for convenience sake, it is saved as a PDF file inside the SSS environment, where you can drag and drop it to your host system. Note that if you are using a factory BMW diagnostic head, printing through the virtual network does not work as the machines physical network is used. However, printing will still work if you switch interfaces in the DIS and VMware.
We have full support for USB EDIABAS interface cables, as well as Serial ADS cables and the factory BMW DK multiplexer (also known as a Yellow Head and sometimes incorrectly as a GT1) as well as the BMW OPS and OPPS diagnostic multiplexers. Included are utility programs to configure the system to use whichever diagnostic interface you need. The primary tool is the Cable Select utility, it will reconfigure the EDIABAS configuration files to match whichever cable you need at the moment. If will recognize both standard Serial Ports built into the machine, and those virtual serial ports created by the FTDI installation. When you are using a USB cable, there are special utilities used to configure the cable (and that only need to be run one time per USB cable) as well the Cable Select utility that will configure the system. Adding support to use the EDIABAS with the factory heads is included.
There are a couple of limitations to using an serial ADS cable that you should be aware of. First ADS cable drivers will only run properly on Windows XP so if you plan on diagnosing/coding an ADS car you need Windows XP. Second, the SSS Progman, does not reliably connect to ADS cars. We have had very mixed results in success with this. However, the GT1 DIS v44 has complete functionality with ADS cars and you can perform any task through the DIS that you could with the SSS Progman, and for those with the oldest BMW's we also offer (via download) the DIS v39.
On your selected notebook or laptop, install the appropriate version of VMware player (free from VMware for non-commercial use) or if you already have your own copy of VMware workstation, it must be no older than 6.5. Insert the PSS DVD into your laptops DVD reader and the install process will start.
How does it install? Well unlike all the other ebay offerings, there are no complicated instructions including things like 'change this setting in your Windows to make this program work.' The Custom PSS Installer for determines your Operating System and install will initiate the installation of all required software accordingly. Complete instructions are provided, and support (should you need it) is readily available by email, phone or using TeamViewer.
A DVD with the custom installation which includes the following software:
* The NCS Expert is a legacy 16 bit application and will not run on a 64 Bit OS. It can be run if you add Microsoft's Windows XP Virtual Machine on your 64 Bit version of Windows 7 (Professional, Enterprise or Ultimate are required). This is not the only way, we have another solution for NCS Expert that does NOT require building an XP virtual machine, and is included as part of our general update. This update is included with the purchase price and can be downloaded by request. The update will run on any supported platform from XP onwards.
** With our update, we include a utility to get the addition Assembly Line data files for the WinKFP/NFS tool set pre-integrated into an image of the installed EDIABAS system. This will allow you to code/diagnose all models non F-series BMW's and Minis up to the 02/2016 Model year. This download (if you choose the whole package) requires up to an additional 45 GB of disk space to install on top of the existing system.
** If you have an ADS car you MUST have a real serial port hardware address as COM1 and your computer must run Windows XP and you must have a ADS cable! Unless using a factory DK diagnostic multiplexer.
