9.INPA BMW Software Trouble Shooting


9.1.Driver Error

Message comes along with an ADS or OBD connector.

This error occurs if another program or device has taken the COM1 port of your PC.

If you want to work with EDIABAS or INPA, please make sure that the COM1 port is not taken.


9.2.EDIABAS Error 126 (only up to Ediabas V6.4.x)  

EDIABAS Error 126

Reason: This error message appears if you start the Tool Set while an INPA script is  running. This is also true the other way round. The reason for this is that only one programme can access EDIABAS at a time.

Solution: Therefore, before you start the ToolSet, you must exit INPA!!!


9.3.ToolSet Error: Runtime error ’372’

The following error message appears.

inpa bmw 3.8ToolSet Error Runtime error372

Reason: The old version msflxgrd.ocx exists under c:winntsystem32. Solution: msflxgrd.ocx under c:Ediabasbin must be registered. To do this, select “Start”   “Run…” and execute regsvr32: ediabasbinmsflxgrd.ocx in the window and confirm with “OK“. The following must be entered for Windows XP: “regsvr32 c:ediabasbin msflxgrd.ocx“
