E39 coding and Rheingold

Any e39 coder guys in here?
Just modded my LCM to stop warnings about led lights. I replaced almost every bulb, 14.
The blinkers still fast flash, but no more errors.

Any other mods you recommend for e39? While I'm still fresh how the process works 😉

I figured out how to modify your OBD1 cap to allow obd2 interface to communicate with all modules thanks to a buddy. I connect with OBD2, with the cable pictured. Works for INPA and ncsexpert.

However, I can't use Rheingold. Can't tell if my installation is wrong or e39 is not supported. No other cars to test and this is a new install. It's like my license is wrong but I double checked all the steps and the registry. Both keys for 32 and 64 bit are installed, and online mode is true. The error after trying to identify or entering my VIN is: the recognized vehicle is not licensed to connect etc etc.. and then it disconnects. If you're not sure what my problem is maybe my version is not a good release of the Rheingold ISTA-D, please confirm which release is sure to work from your experience.

Thanks!

4.15.12 works
I deleted my rheingold folder and followed the steps again to install this whole thing and somehow now everything works
cant tell if this is a bad release or my installation of 4.23 was wrong - that error usually means missing core files in the ista database
but this is resolved for me

I find the description of errors is not very often useful considering its 200+GB on my disk but it's still appreciated to visualize the ECUs and all errors at the same time and access each ECU functions
