  1. Ok so start from the beginning, have you installed the cable drivers? when you plug cable in check lower right task bar and see what usb is doing, it maybe searching for driver from update and can take a while to do so.
  2. It wont show unless you have the cable plugged into your pc, once plugged in it will load driver and show in com/lpt ports.
  3. will run on windows 10, make sure you have set usb serial port, settings or device manager, com/lpt ports/usb serial port /properties/com/advanced, set comport and latency timer both to 1 and try again.

    Which diagnostics for a beginner

    Hi, sorry for late reply, ista will be more usefully to you, e-sys is for coding and ista is for diagnostics. both available with a quick google search, or you can purchase on ebay cheap enough, again make sure seller has support.

    Which diagnostics for a beginner

    Hi, You can use either the K+Dcan or E-net cable of your FXX, There both available on ebay for pennies now, my E-Net are £24.99 delivered ebay you can get probable half that price, unfortunatly I had to pay import duty and vat on my where as most ebay ones dont, make sure if you go ebay/amazon route that they supply the software with the cable. either way do some reading on ista and e-sys before you start playing with your car as a beginner. all software is windows based and will run on 7 8 and 10.

  10. Hi, For diagnostics you can use the switched K+DCan cable on all the models mentioned, software comes free with the cable.

    Re-use old USB OBD2 cable

    Hi, No you cant, you can mod them for earlier K-Line models but you will need a dcan/K+Dcan for your f11.

    Suggestion for coding

    If you are not up to speed with the likes of e-sys you should be looking and phone app software as its a lot easier to use than e-sys, I use bimmercode on my F11 but there are others to look at, post in the F series section and you will have a lot more replies.
