Possible to use BMW ISTA for Mini R56? How to setup?

Confirmed! you can use BMW ISTA-D and ISTA-P for Mini R56 diagnostics and programming.

If Mini R56 is in the F-series category then:

Try this sequence.

Turn off all Antivirus or remove them all together and turn off windows defended and firewall then :

1st>Plug in driver’s seat belt:

2nd>Tern on terminal 15:

3rd> Give a minute for control units too boot up,

then connect the ICOM emulator to DLC 16 Pin connector,

then allow ip address to set in tcp/ip setting in windows.


Then go ahead and try establish connection Mini R56.

If this procedure doesn’t work then try out another interface like Enet cable for Mini R56


Have tried

4.9 Loader 6.1 and 6.4l lite

i reinstalled Windows all net-frames and latest ISTA-P Minis working great
