I tried two laptops (both running Win7 x64) but the same error from both.
One additional detail: E-Sys never asked any PIN ...is this normal?

Anyone had similar experience ...any hint how to get forward?

Here's the error msg with all the detailed text:
It seems you have not installed the psdzdata files correctly.

To view your cafd files when not connected to car, you should save your SVT during the last connection to car. Following are the steps:

Connect to the car
As usual read FA and SVT
Now save FA and SVT to a location of your choice but outside E-Sys.
In the process save all the cafd files too
Disconnect ESys

You are now ready for off line reading.

Start ESys
Don't press connect button
Press load to load saved FA (this may be optional)
Press load to load SVT
Right click on any green cafd file marker and New>FDL
Point to the right saved cafd file

Now follow your steps

Thanks April!
Perhaps you can give some further quidance based on following info:

My psdzdata folder "c:\ESysSData\psdzdata" contains all files extracted by WinRAR from the original psdzdata 47.4 rar -packages (using all the 23 downloaded *.rar files). In the "psdzdata\mainseries" subfolder there are some additional folders & files generated during the installation.

The data files in psdzdata were just extracted by WinRAR and there was no any other processing before using them, is this ok ?

The "status" of the other subfoldres in the ESysData -folder is:
CAF - no files here
EST - two files here, e.g. Code Away.est
Etc - no files here
FA - on sample xml file here
FP - no files here
Logs - several log files
ODX - no files here
Rules - three .jar files
SWE - no files here
SVT - no files here
SWT - no files here
TAL - no files here

...and My car is X3(F25) built on 9/2011.

Thanks, that is what I did not do. I had only saved my cadf files and not the FA nor the SVT. Thanks for the the assist.

If you want to look at your car's read ECU coding data (CAFD .ncd files), you only need to launch E-Sys, go to the Editors & Viewers, open the FDL-Editor, put your PIN in, and then navigate to your CAF folder (C:\ESysData\CAF) and select the desired CAFD file's corresponding read coding data .ncd file.

If you want to look at an unread CAFD file, launch the CAF-Viewer, and then navigate to your CAFD folder (C:\ESysData\psdzdata\swe\cafd) and select the desired CAFD.

I have tried both your way and April1 and I get an error message "No EST file chosen". I have associated the cadf files to the SVT but still can't get any further.

Copy "e-sys est" folder from "\\BMW E-Sys\E-Sys Program\e-sys est" to "C:\ESysData\e-sys est"

Launch E-Sys, and Under Options, Settings:

On the EST Tab, set the Developer-Soft-Token EST Path to "C:\ESysData\e-sys est\Code Away.est"

Also, while there, make sure that on the PROGRAM TAB, you set the Directories - Data Path to C:\ESysData

I figured it out I had not pointed the software to the codeaway file in the EST Folder.

Sorry for late reply.

psdzdata folder should have following sub-folders:
extLibs
kiswb
mainseries
mapping
security
swe
temp

please check that there is a dist folder in each of the odx folder of sub-folders of odx of each series.

Other folders and contents are corect as stated by you.

The Temp folder is not needed and may or may not exist depending on the PSdZData version and who packaged it. I think it may actually be created by E-Sys after running it, as I have the folder now, but it was not in the original downloaded 47.5 PSdZData.

Yes ESYS creates the temp folder, so it can be ignored.

Hey guys, I just tried coding and I am missing modules such as HU_CIC and CMD_Media??

Any ideas why? I was able to code BKOMBI and gain access to the MPH on the BC

Any immediate help would be gratefully appreciated

Your Head Unit is HU_CHAMP instead of HU_CIC because you do not have 609 Navigation. You do not have CMB_MEDIA, because you do not have 6VC Combox. And as you already discovered your KOMBI is BKOMBI for basic Instrument Cluster.
