The minimum system requirements are so low that the program can be run on the weakest laptops:


  • Operating system Windows® 98 / 2000 / XP / VISTA (in XP compatibility mode) / Windows 7 (in XP compatibility mode)
  • Processor at least Intel Pentium-II® 300MHz
  • RAM from 64MB
  • Free disk space 400MB
  • COM port or USB port

If you install BMW INPA EdiaBas on a virtual machine, then it doesn’t matter what system you have, even Windows 10: the main thing is to have WMware of a certain version that can work with the virtual machine image.

Installation of BMW INPA EdiaBas

The installation depends on the selected version. Below there are both clean installers (self-configuration), or a VMware version with already configured parameters. In general, the choice of one or another version depends on your skill. It is also worth considering that the emulator is slower and consumes more laptop resources, so we recommend installing the regular version (not VMware) on slow or old devices.

If the current status is “Disabled”, then the virtual machine does not see DCAN or there is no power at the connector in the car (the ignition is not turned on).
