Default E36 M3 Evo, what software to use

I have a ADS cable and DIS 44 installed, it seems to work fine.

I installed from RV8FLYBOY dvd

I also have INPA 3.0.1, i get a script error everytime i do anything with the e36 modules. If i flick the switch on my cable from ADS i get the ignition on showing in the INPA software.

Any ideas how to make it work?

The error message for starters
What com port
Did you disable any build in modem that may be on com 1
Have you got diaghead program installed? And is it off when using INPA

The error reads 'error compiling script file!'

I didn't disable any modem, i don't think it has one.
I don't have diaghead installed.

Well if DIS works in VM and uses underlying eidabas installed in windows then that and the serial and the cable work ok. Sounds like INPA

If you used something like filemon / regmon or process mon you should be able to see what file

I just installed a different version of INPA and can dow get into the E36 sections, i managed to activate a few things on the car through it.

I'm getting a different error a lot now though.

'Variant checking'
IFH-0009: NO RESPONSE FROM CONTROLUNIT, program will be stopped!'

I'm now on INPA version 5

You're not telling us what modules you can access and activate stuff on and what modules you are having trouble with and what features work and what don't.

Can't guess from here

I can access the
engine module and activate aircon compressor, fuel injectors etc
Internal digital climate control, and activate blower, open flaps and make the readout all on.
Thats pretty much it, can't access anything else, it all fails
