successfully ran the BAT file as admin
tried to launch esys launcher but it still doesnt open?

any ideas?
Best to just switch to Bimmercode, itís £25 for the app and £20 for the V Link adapter and then thereís no more complications, and itís so much quicker and easier to use!

Hadnít a clue about a lot of things tied with eSys and the launcher.

The script does work, try to change the time before running the script, and maintain that until you have finished what you are doing.

I may turn to BimmerCode once I can get back to ďdefaultĒ or factory, so I can make a backup on there and continue making tweaks every now and again.


eSys is really useful for full on retrofits of which I am not doing. Iíd like to actually get a Pro license but that seems unlikely, so once back to basics and warranty work is adhered to, Iíll go down the bimmercode route.

Donít even have anything extravagant, 8.8Ē sceeen that comes in a 4 series, it would just look odd with the smaller controller.

Electric seats donít normally come with easy entry/exit do they?

Then a few fun things I did like the Xmas/M logos, digital speedo display.

It may all go unnoticed, but I have no relationship with the dealership and itís my first visit.

Enough with the workarounds already

I am going to get flamed for this, but here goes anyway. Why all this effort to find workarounds for the software? Is $50 really so big a price to pay for a rather useful piece of software? I don't think so.

More importantly, however, is the fact that you are donating money to a worthy cause. I donated to the BCRF and did so happily, despite the fact that I have donated my time and skills to the Breast Cancer Foundation here in New Zealand already. US$50 converts to NZ$73 which is really not a big deal.

My grandmother died from breast cancer and I never got to know her as a result. Even scarier is the thought of my mother or sister having to go through that same drama. If my $73 makes even the smallest impact then I will be happy.

Stop with the workarounds, donate the money, and if you really feel that strongly about it...flame away.

I think the reason for all these workarounds is that the developer isn't responding anymore, even if you donate.

Paying/donations for software, I don't have an issue with but at the moment TM seems to be taking the money and not providing the Pro login details.

I've paid directly to TM and heard nothing back and yes I do feel a bit cheated. If TM is no longer supporting his software then he should stop his automated emails asking for donations and just say so on the forums.

I've asked PayPal to look into the transaction, honestly I have no idea if TM has really passed on the donation or just using my cash for a new car.

Some say you can find a working token for free, some say eBay, some say Esysx

Personally I just use Bimmercode, much easier and more convenient!

I need to code for M Performance brakes (370mm) - I have Bimmercode, but you can't do that.

Im pretty sure you can code VO in Expert mode.

I had to code my SAT (2TB) sports auto transmission... in expert mode because it was also a VO code.

Someone else please chime if they have knowledge...

Just trying to help and I have a feeling BimmerCode is capable.

Im also upgrading my brakes (to MSport) this spring and will likely need to know the answer to this very question!

VO coding just makes a whole load of FDL changes ďen massĒ, so you can code it with Bimmercode expert mode, but you would need to know all of the FDL changes that need to be made.

Isn't he just?

Can sort of understand it when others have ripped off and repackaged his stuff to sell.

While this version's free I noticed that the token expires next year, so probably not a good long term solution.

I found that one earlier, generates 50 year tokens so no need to shell out anything.

yep in the us is $30 for the pro version of bimmercode and doesn't seems a lot and really simplify a lot the process of installing a lot of sofware

question for you or anyone who knows the answer, I am also interested in having apple carplay in full screen but for that the only option that I found was to pay $50 and they will send me the code

can I do this by code using bimmbercode or just ESYS??

Most likely Windows Firewall / Defender needs to be disabled.

You will not be able to connect via VIN unless PSdZData is properly installed, and the Car and Laptop have a connection. For this:

1) The Target Connection Window should not be blank (It should show multiple target connections for different chassis')
2) ENET Cable must be good and making good contact in OBDII Port
3) Car must have proper voltage (Make sure motor is running if car is not on a Charger).
4) Laptop must not have Firewall or any Antivirus software running.
5) PC Lan Adapter should get a fallback IP address of 169.254.xxx.xxx (Make sure it is using DHCP and does not have a Static IP address assigned to it)
