Ediabas error #95 means that some INPA script (.IPO file) is requesting a result from some .prg file that does not exist. This is most probably caused by a missing .prg file.

 

Error message 2:

2.5 IFH-0018: Inizialisation Error

INPA doesn’t work but Toolset yet

 

The error occurs if a SGBD is running by INPA or CASCADE. If the same SGBD is loaded in

the Toolset it will not occure an inizialisation error.

 

Reason : The communications port COM1 doesn’ exist, but COM3 yet. The Toolset is

working without the inizialisation error, because the file OBD.ini exists in the

directory C:\Ediabas\bin\. But the file OBD.ini has to exist in the direcory

C:\Windows.

Solution: Copy the file OBD.ini in the directory C:\Windows or create a new one. (Creation

of OBD.ini q.v. 3.3).

 

Error message 3:

API job error or no such result!

Varuantenkonrolle:

inpa-IFH-0018-INITIALIZATION-ERROR

Reason: Ediabas is attempting to access port COM1. However, the port doesn’t exist, or it

has been taken by another programme (e.g. HotSync from Palm, infrared).

Solution: Install a COM1 interface or free it.

 

Real feedback on INPA initialization error with solution above:

Yesterday my BMW INPA K+DCAN software showed error: INITIALIZATION ERROR. killed several hours with this knock-off. The car i connected to is BMW 2011 – e92 – LCI.

To set the COM to 1, obd.ini is also COM1.

I seek help from forums and one of them provided a solution to the problem:
(solution offered by an experienced user with K+Dcan cable)

Modify the EDIBAS.INI as follows
RemoteHost
; Description : server address/name
; Default = –
; RemoteHost = Desmo16
Desmo16 being my computer’s name (note that this must be maximum 8 chars)
and
Port
; Description : IP communication port
; Value : 1000 < port < 30000
;
; Spezialfall OP(P)S /ICOM:
; Value : 6801 ;OBD-Treiber (CAN)
; Value : 6802 ;Most-Treiber
;
; Default = –
; Port = 6801
OBD2 notice that you should be sure port is 6801 as mine was 3000. It worked like a charm after i made these mods.
