I am hoping to fill this thread later. This is intended to be the thread to help people get setup with NCSExpert as this can be a real nuisance. If it attracts interest I will later divide it into threads with settings for various chassis.
For now I will be replying to beerman's post in the general coding thread.
Have you setup all of Standard Tools? If so which version?
Which interface are you using? Are relevant drivers loaded (if it is USB)?
Have you tested the interface and installation using INPA yet?
Have you found a recent copy of the daten files?
Have you imported them correctly (can be done by hand but easiest using BMW Coding Tool)?
Have you downloaded NCSDummy (makes life a million times easier)
Have you downloaded or created an "Expert Mode" profile (often called Revtors Profile)?
Sorry before I thought I would start I thought I would check the preliminary steps.
