Default DIS - Diagnostic Head Connectivity Issues

Hello All,

I purchased a K+D CAN "switchable" cable and "one-click" setup DVD set from, the installation went as expected, no issues.

INPA works fine, but I cannot connect to DIS. I tried following instructions on bcables FAQ page, but had no such luck finding resolution. I contacted the seller for help, but to date no response....

Seems the diagnostic head will not connect.

Attached are the error screens that greet me....

Any help is greatly appreciated

Found Resolution following the below procedure:

On your C:/ drive locate the folders named EDIABAS and EDIABAS1, then swap the names;

On your c: you have two ediabas folders, assuming you haven't changed these the one labeled ediabas is version 7. Dis will only work with 6.something this is installed in the folder ediabas1 folder.

rename the folders:

ediabas > ediabas7
Ediabas1 > ediabas

You will need to switch the folder names back to use INPA

Now, find IFHSrv32 located in your newly named EDIABAS folder (C:/EDIABAS/bin, then run as admin (IMPORTANT TO RUN THIS AS ADMIN)

Click on the VMware Player and run as admin (IMPORTANT TO RUN THIS AS ADMIN)

For quick access I created shortcuts to both IFHSrv32 and VMware Player on my desktop.

At this point I quickly opened cmd prompt and pinged the interfaces of the VM, and They should return successful connections.

Once it's booted up you will noticed the battery and what looks like a signal strength bar is NOT lit up, but don't worry it will still work.

That's it!
