(Solved) BMW ISTA+ 4.10 Error “Programming is not possible”

Here lists possible solutions from users to help those with error “Programming is not possible” when using BMW ISTA+.


Sw version: Ista+ 4.10.30
Hw: Enet cable


Error message: I get message after reading all ECU’s
“Programming is not possible”
If I click this message away I can just continue.

I have: bin, binx64, host, hostx64
But which files/maps must be located in map PSdZ?


Solution 1:

Try it with the BLP data so the folder “data” under C / Rheingold / PSdZ / data ..
Of course, in the Reg also specify that the data is available but still as you have made everything on “false” ..


you unpack the BLP under C / Rheingold / PSdZ / and you get the folder “data” ..
So C / Rheingold / PSdZ / data ..


“Product Version” = “”
“Main Product Version” = “4.10”
“Data version” = “10/04/31”
“DataVersion_en-GB” “04/10/31”
“Logistic Base Version” “10/04/30”
“SWIData” = “04/10/30”

“BMW.Rheingold.Programming.ExpertMode” “True”
“BMW.Rheingold.Programming.Enabled” = “True”
“BMW.Rheingold.Programming.PsdzDataPath” = “.. \\ .. \\ .. \\ \\ PSdZ data_swi”


If it doesn’t work, try the following solution. It works for someone in earlier version.


Solution 2:

In earlier versions this worked:

Have not tried on latest.

P.S. BLP must be installed normally into data folder. No need to create any empty folders.


Still had psdz path set to data_swi. You must adjust it to be data instead of data_swi when no sdp installed. Then it should not complain and work. BLP data MUST be installed in all cases.



Solution 3:

Create empty folders
