ISTA-D Full crack - Download (~ 15mb)

Installation instructions


For correct operation of ISTA-D Rheingold software, you need a computer with Windows 7 or Windows 10 operating system, 7-zip ( download ) and min. 30 GB of free disk space.

1. Introduction


for the program to work correctly, the Standard Tools package (Inpa, NCS, etc.) must be installed. The necessary files and instructions for proper installation are described on our website. If you haven't installed it yet, do so first;

To install the program, the Net Framework 4.7 library is required. You can find it at this link;

in the case of Windows 10, you must first disable the default Windows Defender antivirus program;

Links to files you need


INPA, Ncs Expert, WinkFp, Tool32, Bmw Coding Tool, Ncs Dummy - DOWNLOAD (~ 230mb)


Fix in the registry - DOWNLOAD

SP-Daten bases


Attention! Databases are required only when we want to be able to use the NCS Expert encoding program. You can record them later as needed. You don't need to download all available, but only those models that you want to be able to encode.

2. File upload


download the .zip archive from the link at the beginning of this guide;

after downloading the package, right-click on it > Properties and in the window that appears, check if there is an "Unblock" button in the lower right corner. If it is, you need to click it. Otherwise, after unpacking the files, some of them will be blocked and the program will not work. If this button is missing, just close the window;

create, for example, a folder on the Desktop with any name and unpack the downloaded .zip package into it with the 7zip program;

3. Installation


go to the folder where you extracted the previously downloaded files and install all the programs from the "Pre-Install" folder one by one (some of them may not install - don't worry about it and continue);

in the next step, copy the "Rheingold" folder with its contents to C:\Program Files (x86) ;

go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Rheingold\TesterGUI\bin\Release;

right-click the IstaGUI icon>Properties>Compatibility and check the box next to "Run this program as an administrator";

in the same window, click "run this program in compatibility mode". Leave the default value suggested by Windows in the dropdown. Confirm the changes by clicking "Apply" and then "OK";

right-click the IstaGUI icon > Send > Create Desktop Shortcut;

rename the created shortcut to "ISTA";

launch ISTA with the created shortcut and go through the installation process. When the program asks for a license, go to the files extracted from the beginning, open the IstaLicense.txt file and copy its contents into the installation window;

during installation, the program will ask for the "ISIS" number - enter the number 1 in this field and click the "Finish" button. After that, the program may report a problem, but after accepting it, everything will work fine;

to restart a computer;

4. Configuration


launch ISTA and click the wrench icon on the top bar. In the window that appears, go to the "VCI Config" tab and in the "Interface type" item select "Ediabas default settings (ediabas.ini)" and click OK;


5. Adding a Polish version


unpack the previously downloaded package ISTA_PL_4.01.20.rar;

go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Rheingold\SQLiteDBs ;

move the extracted files (without folder) streamdataprimitive_PLPL.sqlite and xmlvalueprimitive_PLPL.sqlite to the above location;

after launching the ISTA program, click on the wrench icon on the top bar. The new language option should now be active;

    Imre #15:
    right-click on IstaGUI -> properties. Check compatibility mode (Win XP - default value) and check "run as an administrator".

    This helped me.
