Customer asked questions:

Q: I'm searching a tool which I can use to reset EWS, DME for E/F series, so I can apply used controll units. I already purchased Icom. Problem is the original bmw-software dont support DME, EWS coding on already used control units. That means I searching for a tool which can change VIN on control units.
A: Our icom can meet your needs. If your car is before 2015, then choose our 2015.1 icom software to do. our software has the engineer version. It can do the coding function, but the matter is you need to know how to use engineer version do it.
this one has the single programming function. It can do coding. For original software, it does not have the single programming function. Original software support full system programming automatically, not single programming.
For original bmw software, if one ECU is broken, then it stops programming, it only support programming when all ECU meet its standard. and canceled many special function.

Answer: For bmw icom after 2015.7. This is the normal prompt. Just click OK and go on to use this software. It has no influence for software functions.

Part 6: I cannot open ISTA after power on the software. It give me message "Please wait while ISTA-D is starting! Don't close ISPI-NEXT Admin Tools when ISTA is Running!" How to do next?

Solution: Restart the system. Then open ISTA again. When you see this message. Do not click OK first. Wait for 1-2 minutes. software will enter ISTA automatically. There is the ista-de option at buttom right cornor. Tick it. It will enter ISTA faster.
