Disclaimer:

You are at your risk.  INPA will work with few select things for an E38 such as resetting adaptations, diagnostics, code reading, etc. NCS Expert will NOT run on a 64-bit operating system. If you have a 32-bit version of Windows 10, please feel free to try ECS Expert and let me know if it works!
