Default Reingold ista missing control units


I'm running Rheingold Ista 3.42.30 and I've noticed the last couple of cars I've connected to has had control units missing from the quick test. They're not even on the control unit tree. Completely non existent!

I've had TCU missing, SMG missing that I've noticed, but probably more than that, that I haven't spotted.

If I then connect to ISTA/P the control unit is found, I can program it and communicate with it perfectly. If I then go back to Ista it still isn't visible.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

I probably should have explained a little better what the problem is.

Here is a photo (please excuse the poor quality) this is taken from a BMW franchise ISTA.


My version doesn't recognise the SMG or ULF on the car (amongst others). Its as if the car doesn't have them fitted. Not even on the control unit tree at all!!

The cars I have been using it on are e46s
