BMW ista Windows 10 install:
Setup on Windows 10 64-bit:
After the Windows 10 update (which failed the first two attempts because it turned out the BIOS needed an update first) most applications were fine.
By simply revisiting the COM port settings for my K + DCAN USB to set back to COM9 , minimum buffer sizes and minimum latency Rheingold ran perfectly.
Loader V3.2 and ISTA-P was a bit more tricky. I re-ran the Network Config Tool. I tried Loader V4.3. No joy. However I did it nicely and ISTA-P runs nicely too, and with the excellent Loader V4.3 .
