2. To import E46 daten in WinKFP

Note: BE AWARE WITH STEP 8. For my E46 daten, it didn’t work in that way. I skipped step 8 and did NOT overwrite the files and it worked without cutting any lines.

Then for updating the DME in WinKFP. You can either go for certain desired ZUSB number or select update ZUSB to get the newest one. Then selectt program. Terra has explained this in many forums, he’d be the best to answer.

Guide: GET STARTED WITH WinKFP

1. Install WinKFP

2. After installation we get some directories:

How_to_start_WinKFP-02

After installation the directory (Drive letter):\EC-APPS\NFS\SGDAT contains file

CABI.h only, and doesn’t contains files, required for working.

3. Mount the Progman disk in virtual drive (or insert in usual DVD-drive), extract all files SP-daten-Exx.rar from directory (Drive letter):\CIP-Installer\bin, each one in its own directory. (You must get directories like SP-daten-Exx).

How_to_start_WinKFP-03

4. Now copy all *.IPO files from every directory (Drive letter):\SP-daten-Exx\sgdat to directory (Drive letter):\EC-APPS\NFS\SGDAT. For this purpose better use Total Commander, it allows to overwrite elder files with newest.

This directory now looks like this:

How_to_start_WinKFP-04

5. In the same way refresh directory (Drive letter):\EDIABAS\Ecu with files taken from (Drive letter):\SP-daten-Exx\ecu

6. Run WinKFP

How_to_start_WinKFP-05

7. Choose “Import/Export – Import – Assemly line data” and import all data needed from directories (Drive letter):\SD-daten-Exx\DATA

Details how to import assembly line data are given in official manual for WinKFP

8. After importing the data, copy all files from directory (Drive letter):\SD-daten-

E70\DATA\gdaten to directory (Drive letter):\EC-APPS\NFS\DATA\GDATEN,

overwriting all existing files.

Note: If you use Progman v.30 for updating WinKFP, it has error in file

\GDATEN\Sgidc.as2. Simply open this file with Notepad and delete line 165.

WinKFP is ready for programming
