Step 3: Move Rheingold folder
Move the folder to C:\EC-APPS
Note: You can place the folder as-well in C:\Program Files, or wherever you'd like. I personally like having it in EC-APPS because its easy to find.

Great News! I have found an earlier version 4.01 (Which is compatible with Windows 7).

I learned that versions 4.21 and above is only compatible with Windows 10. :rolleyes:

I'll be making some new install instructions for Version 4.01, and readding v4.32 soon as-well.

I apologize for all the frustration, I know its a PITA getting a version to work.
What a surprise!! I'll give it a try. I'm downloading it now. Thank you for the effort!

Just updated OP!

Removed ISTA/P Link, the DL was corrupt as-well.

Will be reuploading, w/ instructions.
Oh Goodness! My apologies, ill finish the instructions tonight for ISTA/P.

Are you looking to program or diagnose your E-Series?
Thanks for the Update!

Install Instructions: ISTA+ v4.32.15
Requirements
  1. Windows 10 v1903 or higher, 11 (32-bit or 64-bit)
    -> Windows 7/8 is NOT supported!

    -> Amazon/eBay cables are hit or miss
  3. BMW Standard Tools MUST be installed, and working correctly!
    -> How to Install BMW Standard Tools
  4. 150GBs or more availble space on your Hard Drive or SSD.

both, so is ISTA+ v4.32.15 the correct version?
I downloaded the RAR, and in the Rheilgold directory there is no directory Rheingold\TesterGUI

What did I mess up?

4.1 - I have an old version of Windows so I can run INPA/NCSExpert - don't I have to use the older ISTA?

Good News!

I stumbled upon another version of ISTA 4.32.15 which has Service Data.

Note: ISTA+ does not program E-series.

-> Will be uploading soon.

I also am testing a version of ISTA/P and once I get that confirmed it works I'll upload it.

Also to clarify ISTA Versions:

Credit: Almaretto @ Bimmerfest

E-Series & R05x Mini:
  • Interface = K+DCAN Cable (OBDII to USB) or ICOM
  • ECU Data Files = SP-Daten
  • NCS Expert = Coding Software
  • WinKFP = Programming (Flashing) Software
  • EDIABAS = Low Level ECU Communication Software used by NCS Expert & WinKFP
Fxx- / Ixx- / Gxx-Series, Mini (F05x/F06x), & Rolls-Royce:
  • Interface = ENET Cable (OBDII to RJ45 Ethernet) or ICOM
  • ECU Data Files = PSdZData
  • E-Sys = Coding Software
  • E-Sys = Programming (Flashing) Software
ICOM
  • ICOM A: main interface
  • ICOM B: adapter for programming multimedia in E series
  • ICOM C: adapter for old BMW with round 20 pin diagnostic plug
  • ICOM D: adapter for motorcycles
Additional Dealership Level Software
  • ISTA+ (AKA Rheingold or ISTA-D)
  • ISTA-P
    • PROGRAMMING traditionally for all chassis, but F-/I-/G-series phased out with 3.63.5 release (March 2018).
    • ICOM Recommended. An ICOM emulator with K+DCAN or ENET can be used, but will NOT communicate over all protocols to program every ECU.
    • Replacement ECU's must be NEW

Ista+ is not letting me use programming, any idea why this would be? is there a special setup? I have an ICOM Next.

Also I got Ista/P from a utorrent download but there is a weird problem: The terminal 15 voltage keeps cutting out to 0.0V. because of it the DME might be bricked..
Ista+ is not letting me use programming, any idea why this would be? is there a special setup? I have an ICOM Next.

Also I got Ista/P from a utorrent download but there is a weird problem: The terminal 15 voltage keeps cutting out to 0.0V. because of it the DME might be bricked..
ISTA+ in the current download doesn't have the SDP for Programming.

What are you trying to achieve w/ ISTA/P?
