Software installed but when connecting to car for the first time I get the following error message when trying to run ZGW_Search.ex (step 09 in the .txt file)

"Component MSWINSCK.OCX or one of its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid"

I'm running a ThinkPad X201 with Win 7 Pro 64, Wireless card has been turned off and laptop rebooted but still getting the same error.

What am I missing?

You're not missing much, that file has issues under 64 bit. You could try to see it runs if you try it in Win32 compatibility mode but there's no real need really, you can skip that step if you want, the car should still make connection to your laptop (if it doesn't, make sure you disable wifi as that might give connection issues from time to time).

Yes Sir! XP compatibility mode did the trick. Thank you very much. I'm now connected to the car, Yikes! Off to read the other manuals and off to coding wonderland.

Can an audiable chirp be coded so you would know the doors are locked. ( No alarm)

Shouldn't that be an option in iDrive? I know I can set that in our F10 which doesn't have alarm. FYI I set it to do that for a week and then turned it off, I find it highly annoying and it's easy enough to hear the locks themselves.

On the vehicles without the alarm system there is no option for a chirp.

I would be interested in knowing if a non-alarm vehicle can do a chirp by coding? My sister has a 328i F30 with know alarm and really wants the chirp.

I did see something mentioned about the alarm chirp in the code but I haven't been able to test it on a non-alarm equipped car yet.

Anyways, if you want to try and see if it works, to enable this in the menu on the iDrive, you can find it in the code here:

HU_CIC -> 3000 -> ACOUSTICAL_LOCK_CONFIRM -> set from nicht_aktiv to aktiv (at least I'm figuring that this has to be done on the non-alarm equipped car since I do have alarm and it says 'aktiv' with me ).

This thread is awesome!

Can you actually set it so you see the tire temp and tire psi on the dash??

Yep, it's just one setting to change.

I now have one of the convenience buttons assigned to show the tire temp & pressure; very reassuring and cool to have!

Awesome! Can't wait to program it on mine! Anyone in NorCal want to do it for me once I get my car? We should find someone in the Bay Area who has the cable and computer and software and is experienced at doing it and have a meet-up and everyone can pay him $50-$100 to code their car as requested. That dude would make some serious coin in a single day.

UPDATE: I built my own cable and was successful in coding my car. Again the ICOM from the Service Department I work at DID NOT work.

I have a question. I DO NOT have comfort access but coded to close windows and sunroof with key fob. However, I can't seem to get it to work. Do I need to hold down the lock or unlock button on the fob?

Also I DO NOT have an alarm and coded for the "chirp" when locking or unlocking and that DOES NOT work just to let you guys know.

Thanks again to all those who have helped the rest of us and especially SVACHE!

I have comfort access, so your behavior may be different, but after coding, you have to push and hold the button (fob or handle) for 3 seconds before things start closing and you have to keep it held until the closing is done. If you release the button, the closing stops; probably a safety feature.

BTW: Thanks regarding the chirp; I was going to try that too. I guess I won't bother.

I have a question: has anyone seeded a BitTorrent for the RapidShare data files? I am just reading through this thread and thought it might be easier to use the P2P network to distribute the files.

Is there some reason nobody's seeded a torrent of these files?

There is a link to a torrent file here:

http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...&postcount=108

I don't know if they are the same files as what's on the rapid share site or not, I gave up on the torrent as there weren't many seeds at the time. The torrent looks pretty healthy right now...

Thanks. I'll take a look.

Right now, there are three seeders.

My UK spec 320ed is able to open/close the windows from the key fob as standard. No coding required and I didn't get the comfort access option. Press and hold the unlock button to open and same but with lock button to close.

Also I did the tyre pressure info mod and I get the extra display but no figs?

Imho, people should just do it for free if they use the information provided here or on one of the other sites. After all, they downloaded their software and everything for free as well. The only cost would have been the cable. It's a different story when someone actually bought everything and has to make a living out of it, but those who use the software from here, they should just do it for free imo

This should be the same, it's the same source from what I believe

It may be the fact I don't have comfort access but I can't get my windows/roof to close with the FOB. I appreciate your response FROGMAN but is it holding down the lock or unlock button on the FOB that closes everything?

When I hold the open button on my E90 key fob, it will, after a couple of seconds, open the windows and sunroof. The reverse happens with the lock button. This was standard for my car since day one and I did not request this operation. Some countries' specifications do not allow for this option, USA being one of them.
