BMW INPA K+DCAN cable fail to install driver (fixed)

If your cheap BMW INPA K+DCAN USB interface with FTDI chip failed to install drivers or the system prompt cannot locate the drivers. Here is a little write-up on how to fix it.

Disclaimer:
I am using Windows 8.1 system. No sure if it works on yours. You are on your own risk.

Pre-installation caution:
Here are the INPA driver & software free download links. If the driver/software is working, then ignore the next part. Otherwise take a look at the following part for reference.

11. Setup INPA cable as normal and run INPA software.

It seems that the white FTDI chip INPA cables have to be manually put into D-CAN mode. This file will take care of that. It is normal for the LED to go out.

If you put the cable into DCAN mode, the LED goes off, and it says there is no adapter connected. Please connect it to the car and run the DCAN mode.
