I purchased the BMW PASOFT SCANNER with the Round 20-pin Adapter for my 1999 BMW 540i DINAN 5. I was having Light Control Module (LCM) issues with headlights, taillights and brake lights.
I tried unsuccessfully three times to install the software on my older model Windows 7 Dell laptop that was updated to Windows 10 Home using a 64-bit system.
The included instructions are fairly straightforward but there was something I just wasn't understanding and doing right with "disabling driver signature requirements", as well as, installing the correct "drivers" for my specific computer.
I contacted PASOFT and Tony was amazing. Instead of trying to email me back and forth about things I wasn't understanding in the first place, we connected via AnyDesk and he took care of everything needed.
Bottom line, the BMW SCANNER software is loaded and I'm ready to get to work.
Tony, thank you again. I hope many people read this review because Tony mitigates any fears you may have about PASOFT 1.4 and taking control of your BMW.
definitely well worth it. I played around with various other scanners/softwares and this one was the easiest to use and fixed my issues. definitely money well spent as a standard tool for these cars. wished I would not have waited to buy it sooner
Install was easy, hardware worked, and problem solved.
Happy with the capability for the price(also it comes with the cable to connect to laptop). Set aside some time and read directions for proper set up of tool/ software. Works great and was able to install a used LCM with no problems/ faults/lights on after.
Software and device worked perfectly - I had an software install issue (my fault) and had to send an email asking to download the software again. Got a response within minutes, much appreciated!
