Still don't understand why but for some reason they still use 98 and XP to run this type of software

i even tryed it on win 7 32bit and no go. The problem is the usb drivers will not install with any other OS above Windows XP

The problem is that you can only use this scanner on Windows 98 or Windows XP

The usb drivers will not install on any other OS other than 98 or Xp

So what you will need to do is install 98 or xp on to your laptop to use it

My Ride: 2000 323ci Manual
Hey Abby I just got mine yesterday and today I installed the software and had to update the drivers cause it didn't want to work and then when i connect it does not read the IKE and cause of that when i scan everything else says not found. Do you know what could be the problem?


Edit: after research and research on this I came across and learned yes everyday i learn something new about bmw and what I found is that for the year of her car 2000 it has the obd2 RECTANGLE port under the dash driver side and has the obd diagnostic ROUND port under the hood also which i had no clue, I was plugging it in under the dash port and most likely that's why I was getting the IKE error so ill will try later on when the sun comes up and look for the port under the hood and hope i don't encounter any more problems.

False, many users including myself have this properly installed on Windows 7 64 and 32 bit

This topic has been covered extensively and many people have gotten it installed without any issues. Perhaps you should do your homework beforehand
