BMW ICOM ISTA 2017.05 review 1:
Download ISTA-D 4.04.31 ISTA-P 3.61.4 from www.cnautotool.com
Well done !
Perfect instruction for installing
I personally went for VM WS installation, because of the portability is a very important issue
For these run out of disk space, like me, i suggest to install ISTA+in VMWare WS Ver 12X with
win7 X64 Guest, Earlier VMWare versions down to 10 probably will work as well. Disk space need
runs to 350GB. I used 350GB diskspace on SSD installed in a caddy sitting in DVD slot of an i3
ISTA can be working good soon, in case you are following the excellent instructibles of spider80
without missing not a one step of instruction.
X86 apps in VM X64 environment like itoolradar arose a java problem, even when I tried to
isntall an outdated X86 Java version.
Mayor Ista+/ISTA P Working like a charm(i used icom with latest firmware update). Running ISTA-P
requires good charging
equipment with constant additional load otherwise it will quit session. BMW currentliy advices
supply> 70A. For older cars like E-series.
25A seem to be ok in my opinion.
