Default Issues with NCS-Reading VO and INPA-Reading Engine

< NCS Expert >
I can get NCS to show CHASSIS: E89(E90), and FG: (my car’s VIN number), but when I click ‘ZCS/FA f.ECU’ and select CAS or FRM to have NCS read the VO, I get the following error.

“ Following feature is invalid for FA: $8AF ”

*Note: According to the SA codes list I have, “$8AF” refers to ‘OWNER‘S HANDBOOK/SERVICE BOOKLET, KOREAN’ which is perfectly reasonable in my car’s case since it’s for the Korean market. So, I’m wondering why NCS is mentioning that it is “invalid for FA”.
If I click ‘Enter FA’, the pop-up edit window seems to show my car’s VO (although I’m not sure if it is accessed from a file in my computer or if it is actually from one of the car’s modules).

More importantly, the space to the right of ‘FA’ is left blank. My understanding is that the VO’s string of numbers(codes) should show up to the right of ‘FA’, so why is it blank?
The reason this is important to figure out is because without the recognition of the VO, NCS is not allowing to proceed with reading ECUs(the buttons are greyed out) so I can’t proceed with coding.


< INPA >
I select E90, then in the ‘Script selection’ I select Engine. Because my engine is an N46N (more specifically N46TU2), I select the closest match in the right side list of engines:

ME9.2 / MEV9 for N45 / N46

Now, I know that my engine’s DME is MV1746(and there is under EDIABAS > Ecu folder the 'MEV17N46.PRG' file). Therefore, ME9.2 or MEV9 and certainly N45 do not apply to my car, but I select this selection because it is the only selection that indicates “N46”. But this results in the following 2 errors one after the other:

“Checking versions
Versions do not match. Malfunction possible! ”

“Checking language variants
Language variants do not match. Malfunction possible! ”

What do I need to do in INPA to have the ‘right versions’?

Hopefully the moderator will take down the spam reply above from 'computertkp'.

Searches have made me consider the possibility of having to update daten files. I encountered a thread elsewhere that mentions that 'updating daten files' actually requires updating all of the following:

\NCSEXPER\SGDAT\ *.ipo files
\NCSEXPER\DATEN\ coding data (daten) for models
\EDIABAS\Ecu\ *.prg files

Are the files mentioned above linked in any way? In other words, must a certain *.ipo file and *.prg file be updated together? Or are these files independent of each other?

I’ve also encountered folks mentioning versions of daten files such as V41 , V45 , V46.3, V48.3 etc.. How can I identify which version I have and how can I identify and get later version(s)?

Updating BMW Standard Tools to 2.12 and updating SP-Daten to V49, resolved the NCS Expert issue, but I'm still working on a solution in INPA.
