Install Guide for BMW Scanner 1.4 on Windows 7 32-bit and 64-bit

Requirements:

  • OBD2 Scanner for BMW 1.4
  • PC running Windows 7 32 or 64-bit
  • Latest FTDI Drivers for Windows 7. Download it directly from FTDI's website HERE
  • File Extraction Software. We recommend 7-Zip. Download it HERE
1. Use your file extraction software to extract the driver's you downloaded

2. Go to the Control Panel, then Device manager and scroll to Universal Serial Bus controller.

3. Next chose one of the USB Root Hubs and right click and then Update driver.

4. Then browse my computer for driver software

5. Choose let me pick from a list of device drivers

6. Then chose "Have Disk"

7. Browse to where you extracted the above file and select ftdibus and hit OK.

8. From the list I choose USB serial convert A and click install

9. Just click OK through all the Windows notifications

10. Turn off your internet, then plug BMW scanner into car and then into computer. Win7 will say it can't install device

11. Go back to device manger and find BMWscanner that should have a yellow ! next to it. Right click, update driver and install the same driver you did for the first usb hub. You need tohave “Administrator Rights” to install the USB driver. It might show an error, but everything should still be installed correctly.

Open up BMWScanner software and it should know show up that drivers installed and connected to car!

Note: 
If your BMW model has 20 Pin diagnostic socket [located under the hood, in the engine bay], you properly need the 20 Pin to OBD2 Adapter Cable
