It is highly possibly that you are one of the lucky few where PA soft will not work.
I have two e39's, a 97 528 and a 99 540 where PA soft works but only using the 20 pin odb plug under the bonnet.
On my 2003 530 e39 PA soft will only read dme and egs, I continuously get failure to connect to ike and ews but only on this vehicle. Updating to 1.4.09 is futile and a waste of time. Wondering if 2.0 software and interface is the way to go.

download the [Only for registered users... ] software, and get a [Only for registered users... ] to 16-pin connector under hood, it should work
