Default Can an indie shop (or any one other than BMW) program a virgin MSV80 DME?

My local indie shop (shop A) towed my vehicle (07 328i) to another shop (shop B) to have a virgin DME (purchased from local BMW dealership) programmed to the rest of car because they lacked the tools to do it. When shop A got car back from shop B, it would not start with new DME. Has 2F49 error (EWS manipulation protection). Shop B claims they never tried to start the vehicle and has nothing more to say (maybe playing dumb)

How difficult is initializing/mating a virgin DME anyway? Can independent shops do it or is this something that can really only be done correctly at factory or stealership? What is more likely, that shop B did not properly program the right "secret code", or that they did so incorrectly and bricked it?

Thanks in advance for any feedback.
