    BMS/BB Flashing App Issue

    Hi,
    running into a little trouble;

    2007 k-line 6mt
    using the BMS tweaked version of the BB flash utility
    currently, on step 3 of 3, 585 minutes remaining?!

    laptop is plugged in, extra battery connected to the terminals


    any ideas on how to speed up the read process?


    I've read in the file that i might need some .NET firmware download but I can't find a link.

    thanks

    You need the BB version installed which you can download where it says downloads.

    yes, I've read the instructions and the threads. the posts I've seen indicated that the BMS tweaked version was better for the K-line. sorry if I misunderstood something.

    from this thread, it seems like it might be a compatibility issue with my laptop:

    i'm running a brand new HP machine with windows XP (work computer, we use XP still). I have an apple macbook pro that I can try out, if that machine will work with the flashing ap. i can give that a try.

    No the issue is you need to install the BimmerBoost version to have the correct framework as it says in the instructions. Install it, use the BMS tweaked version then, and see if you still have issues.

    thanks, i fixed the issue with a different computer. apparently windows XP will work for CANbus (2008 or newer) but not the 2007 k-line. windows 7 is required for the k-line. thanks for your help
