*OFFICIAL* BMW Diagnostic Scanner PA Soft 1.4 Thread

I would go into control panel then devices, find the BMW scanner and reinstall the driver from there.

I would recommend using wmware and run a virtual xp. I have done that on my win 8 and it's working perfectly

Just use any other version of windows. (Xp or windows 7 32bit for better results)

Vista is horrible. Get rid of it.

As per others, go XP or Win7.

I got my Scanner to work on my Vista laptop using this method......

Restart or turn on your system. Allow your computer's boot processes to finish.
Press the F8 key before Windows begins to load, or at the operating system selection screen if you run a multi-boot setup. The Advanced Boot Options menu should appear.
Select the option titled "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement." Hit the enter key and allow Windows to continue booting as normal.

Disabling the drivers signature allows the BMW scanner program to run just fine.

for the corners to blink on lock/unlock you have to checkmark the alarm system. this will also make your "clown nose" thingy on the rearview mirror blink when locked. I can't remember the exact name but if you can't find it let me know.

You dont. Early 2000 and late 1999 do.

xcar360.com also has the INPA K Can BMW scanner. How is that different from BMW scanner 1.4?

Completely different things, but can do many common things. The INPA suite is way more advanced and way less user-friendly. It is BMWs standard tool and can do pretty much everything, including breaking stuff if you are not careful.
