My interests are diagnostics, coding and flashing for my E46.

I originally purchased a K-Line cable from UK which included a software disk. It has a launcher for INPA, DIS V57, NCS Expert, NCS Dummy, BCT 250, Tool32, Progman V32 and WINKFP. I have used INPA, DIS, NCS Expert and NCS Dummy, but not the other programs.

I also have a copy of BMWFlash and MSS52 Binary Modification Tool. I found the K-Line cable would not work with BMWFlash, so I purchased a K+D-CAN cable. That cable works with BMWFlash, but doesn't have pins 7 and 8 connected, so can only access the DME. I will probably solder the pins to get around this so I can use one cable for everything.

What I'm hoping to learn here is what the various programs are for, what overlaps are there between the various programs and what the latest (or best) versions are to use. I'm especially interested to know if I should try ISTA rather than the older programs. Also, wondering about what daten to use.

I'm also interested in knowing what the latest versions of TIS, WDS and ETK are.

I should also say that I'm using an old Dell Latitude 830 laptop 1920x1200 with Core2 Duo T7500 (2.2GHz) and 4 GB of RAM, running Windows 7 Pro SP1 x64.
