It runs fine on my 64-bit Win7 machine even though they say it's not possible. Install should be similar to yours.

Search for the guide, I've seen at least two guides on how to do it.

I posted the following information some time ago in another thread, and in case this link goes down like so many others, it may be useful to include it here, as well. Below are the MD5/SHA hashes (similar to fingerprints for a person) of P.A. Soft's official BMW Scanner 1.4.0 files. If the contents of a file are different, the hashes will be different.

Files can be verified online with sites like OnlineMD5 or with a downloadable tool like HashTab. Have seen a number of links for this and like to confirm what I'm downloading and installing. Hopefully this helps someone out in the future:

BMW Scanner 1.4.0 Full Version:

File: bmwscan_140.zip
MD5: DD3EC43B60758A8FE8A5137A7C6A597C
SHA-1: AF4670D5C8FF88CBDB757D819FD511D9F89B6F20

File: BMW Scanner v140 Install.exe
MD5: 0B9D5F141AB310F1F888870736ACF411
SHA-1: 62D73FA9E481ECA4AB2E46832C64D421A0517846

BMW Scanner 1.4.0 Demo Version:

Just received my BMW scanner. The dang CD was blank! So I just tried that link above: http://bmw-scanner.software.informer.com/1.4/

The download and extraction seemed to work, and it showed up as expected in device manager, etc. However, when I clicked on the shortcut on my desktop, It said bad shortcut. Also It's not in my program list, nor is it in my control panel list where I would be able to delete it if wanted. Tried the download twice. BTW I also couldn't get the driver to stick. Kept disappearing after it said install successful. In the directory all I have is:
C/
BMWScan140 (folder)/
BMWScan140.exe (folder)/
Drivers (folder)/
7 FTDI files

There doesn't seem to be a start up file (.exe) for this program. The .exe listed above is a folder name.

So I'm wondering... could it be my virus software (Webroot) or maybe just a bad zip file? I'm running Windows 7 premium home.

As an alternative, I saw this link on page one of this topic and wondering y'all can confirm it's safe: http://www.obdreaders.com/Diagnostic...ostic+Tool/14/

Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!! _nr_

UPDATE: Got it done with the help of lilmenace91 who provided me a good copy. It's working now!

My experience with the P.A. Soft scanner has been mixed. It will run under Windows 7 and will read all codes but it has trouble clearing them. I loaded the software on an old Dell laptop running XP SP3 and it works just great. My car is a 2000 with the round under-hood "Pac Man" connector. The PA Soft device MUST be hooked up via an adapter cable ($7) to it. Connecting the PA Soft device to the OBD port under the dash results in only reading engine codes. Later cars with only the under-dash connector are likely to be fine. There is software out there on fleaBay for around $60 that does a whole lot more than PA Soft but at least for early e46s mandates a true Windows XP SP3 laptop with a real 9 pin serial connector and adapters to get you to the Pac Man port.

Thanks Bim3Por911, My '05 is all through the ODB Port. Nothing under the hood with this model. And it turns out the Win 7 is not a problem as long as you get the right USB drivers, which I saw how to get from a couple other posts in the forum. Oh, and actual working software helps too!

Thanks to lilmenace91 for hooking me up with that software through drop box. You're a life saver!

Got rid of that pesky ominous air bag light. Tripped the error code when I connected the battery without the airbags connected, while I was replacing the window regulators. Doh!

yes follow my DIY guide on installing the drivers for windows 7 64 bit. as far as windows 8.1 goes, I have not tried it and have no clue. perhaps that ftdi website could provide support for windows 8.1

Hi guys, i too received my scanner from Xcar360 and my mini cd was snapped clean in half. I have downloaded the zip file and install it but it says there are no drivers installed. Does anyone have the solution? I am going crazy.

Are you trying to run it on a Windows 7 64-bit machine? If so, there are a couple extra steps required; here are some links that will help with drivers:

Post #1: https://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=942966

Post #7: http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum...4#post23146094

Believe the first link above was all I used, and everything worked flawlessly.

Thank you SilberVogel, I'm running windows 7 Ultimate 32bit. I did the first step you linked for me and finally the software says it has drivers but now when i try to open the software it says Faulty hardware. do you know what i need to do now? I can't believe everything I try to do with my car takes twice as long or is too hard to acquire. Like my automatic transmission that I need. Living in Tassie sucks sometimes but mostly it is a little paradise.

Make sure the unit is plugged into the car first, as it gets its power from the OBDII port, not the USB cable. If it's not plugged into the car, you'll get that "faulty hardware" message.

That seems to be one of the most common causes for it, but unfortunately, beyond that I'm not sure of what all else can trigger it. The instructions in those previous two links have worked for well for others, but hopefully someone more knowledgeable can chime in with another solution.

If it were me, I'd probably start fresh with a clean install just to make sure nothing got hung up along the way.
