This thread is intended to contain all information and links for BMW Scanner 1.4.

Background
BMW Scanner 1.4 runs on Windows XP through 10, and provides the ability to read/clear trouble codes, view live data, code settings, and test functionionality on most control modules found on BMW models produced from 1992 to 2006.

PA Soft is the european company, now defunct, that created the software and original cable. PA Soft sold the cable for several hundred dollars via their bmw-scanner.com website; you paid for the cable but downloaded the software for free. Later, the cable began to be cloned and sold for less than $100. At that point, PA Soft gave up selling it. Today we buy these cheap Chinese cables for around $20 and download the software for free.
