BMW ISTA 4.05.23 Installation Tips
I personally went for VM WS installation, because portability is a very important issue for me.
For those run out of disk space, like me, I suggest to install ISTA+ in VMware WS Ver 12x with Win7 x64 Guest. Earlier VMware versions down to 10 probably as well.
For disk space need runs to 350 GB. I used 350 GB disk space on SSD installed in a caddy sitting in DVD slot of an i3 notebook.
X86 apps in VM x64 environment like itoolradar arose a java problem, even when I tried to install an outdated x86 Java version.
Mayor ISTA+ / ISTA P working like a charm ( I used ICOM with latest firmware update ). Running ISTA /P requires good charging equipment with constant additional load otherwise it will quit session .
BMW currently advice supply > 70A. For older cars like E-series, 25A seem to be ok in my opinion.
