Spent xmas night binge watching Dr Who, and trying to get ISTA running on my tablet.

Looks like several links are dead in the obdii365 article (http://blog.obdii365.com/2017/11/16/...nstallation/#2)

The files in the second link(https://mega.nz/#F!4Msz2RgL!jvZdlqN3SF75Z5rIRnWnYg), which include a Korean manual and a database labeled as Korean. The ista folder seem to be missing some of the prerequisites? Has this upload been changed since the OP, or is my hangover hurting more than I thought?

Currently my tablet's ISTA will only show an error message when trying to launch. To the effect of "your ista is screwed, undo customization or reinstall"

I'll clear my tablet and start from scratch again, I'll update if I make headway.
Any input would be great. I have had ISTA running on a different machine long ago, but no clue how I managed that.

Thanks for the offer..
but..
My poor tablet has 64gb internal and sd combined!

I fired up an old server and dug through my archive, found a 22GB copy of ISTA 4.04.12 which seems to be working. At least it boots up, and shows no errors. I need to configure it and test on a car.

I don't recall where I got it.

Did you use the Megadownload file with the Korean manual link on the first post?

I had no luck with that one as well.

I have ista d and p setup but they only thing I want it for I can't do lol. I just want to run a vanos test on my s54 but because ista d detects my Vin as E46 ev53 non M, it will not let me add the vanos test to a test plan. It does show the mss54hp DME and can read and clear codes but just can't run the vanos test or any specific s54 tests. Seems like this is a great tool if your sent running a swapped vehicle.

Hello to all,

I had ISTA-D but just reformatted my laptop's hard drive and am in dire need of these files for the ISTA installation:

RCleanerV4.4.exe
Unblock.reg

If anyone has them, and can do me a favor and send them, i will greatly appreciate it.

Regards,
Mark

I attempted to install from a torrent got some error that seams fairly common but did not put the time into figuring it out, something about wrong with the ista configuration but it was on a clean machine so.. Most likely the download..

Would love to try a this software for diagnostic purposes.

Failed to start ISTA.
Please make sure your ISTA configuration is valid.
In doubt reset any non standard ISTA configuration and reinstall ISTA.


Same issue I have previously.. IDK whats wrong with the configuration googling the error - I'm not the only one running into this issue. its a shame too.

I would recommend the bummergeeks ones. I tried many others with ista install failures - got everything from them and it all worked.
