Update: 100% working 1.4 scanner on Windows 7 Home 64bit native ^.^

First I take no responsibility if you fry your computer.. however these are the exact steps I took to get 1.4 running on my computer

Okay so it took me about 5 hours trying to install XPMode on Windows 7 when I finally tried to go rogue and reattempt at installing the software on windows 7. It took awhile but make sure you install > once this is on your system your computer should recognize the BMW scanner in your device manager as "BMWscanner14x" or something along those lines with a yellow "!". From here you right click to update driver, browse my computer, let me pick from a list, select "USB serial bus controller", then on the next screen scroll down to FTDI chipset. It will warn you that hell will freeze over and your computer will break - proceed, Now go back into your device manager and OH NOES the BMWscanner14x device is no longer in the device manager.. but there is a NEW com port listed with an "!".. again right click, update driver. Follow the same steps as before and to install the FTDI drivers onto the com port.

Once all is done, open up PA.Soft and get to coding!
