So the instructions that came with the inpa/standard tools download I am trying to setup is pretty simple until one of the very last steps, the step says to check advanced settings "Environmental VariAbles" menu and make sure that the directories tem and temp have an ediabas.bin in the Value String, I'm unsure as to how exactly to check that. I know where to go but not if I'm posed to change the value of the thing to the ediabas file or just make sure that the file is in there?

I don't know whos or what pkg you're trying to install, but if you'd just stick with the bimmergeeks.net download you wouldn't have to ask any of these questions. It's probably the best pkg out there and the simplest to install.

1. Run St212.exe using all default settings except the 4 checkbox options in the "select additional task" window regarding "backup and restore" and "create desktop/quick launch icons" .
(If using Windows 10, run in st212.exe in "Compatibility Mode" for Windows 7)
2. After install completes, select "No" to restarting PC.
3. Navigate to your C:\ drive and delete the folders labeled "EC-APPS, EDIABAS & NCSEXPER"
4. Replace those folders with the "EC-APPS, EDIABAS & NCSEXPER" from this download by copying them to the C:\ drive.
5. Copy the 3 files inside the OCX folder and paste them in the C:\Windows\Syswow64 folder. If you do not have this folder you are a 32-bit system meaning you need to paste them in C:\Windows\system32 instead.
6. Open Command Prompt as administrator & enter the following commands. Please note if your 32bit system, start on the 2nd line: If you have issues getting the commands to succeed, make sure your running command prompt as administrator.
cd c:\windows\syswow64
(Press Enter)
regsvr32 mscomctl.ocx
(Press Enter & wait for "Registration Succeeded" message)
regsvr32 msflxgrd.ocx
(Press Enter & wait for "Registration Succeeded" message)
regsvr32 comdlg32.ocx
(Press Enter & wait for "Registration Succeeded" message)
7. Place the "BMW Tools" folder(BMW icon) on your desktop. Shortcuts to all the software are inside.
8. Make sure your cable is set to COM-1 with a Latency Timer as 1 in device manager.
9. Reboot Computer.
10. Installation is complet


This was the directions that came with the download, I believe it is the bimmergeeks one. it came with a dr gini program as well and im having A hard time trying to learn how to use the software as well as what exactly it does, it is like another version of ncs dummy to make coding easier or is it more like easy connect and works as another platform to connect the car to the comp?

i think this is it basically edit the variables add ;


  1. Go into Control Panel -> System -> Advanced System Settings.
  2. Select 'Environment Variables' and then verify that the System Variables 'TMP' and 'TEMP' both contain the path 'C:\EDIABAS\Bin' within the 'Value' string - for instance "C:\Windows\Temp;C:\EDIABAS\Bin"

"C:\EDIABAS\Bin" is just a folder path is that on your harddrive?

You won't need it for anything you want to do (Dr Gini). Don't even bother with it. Google any of the other programs and you should find plenty of YouTube video tutorials
