Despite what they say, BMW Scanner 1.4 works fine on all Windows from XP through 10. I would order the cable from xcar360.com.I went looking for that BMW 1.4 scanner too as I see them for like 12 bucks but they all say they are for Windows XP and the software is on a CD, which no laptops have anymore!
There is a software download link on that page.
