You need someone to code it for you that has one of the newer Launchers or, PM dayvg:

He has working LauncherPRO 3.7 solution for FDL coding.

Thanks shawnsheridan I just registered on bimmerfest but I don't have the option to PM/start a conversation. It appears I will need to have a minimum number of posts before I can PM so I have no way of reaching dayvg at the moment.

I think for Bimmerfest, you only have to wait an hour.

Perfect. Thanks for the pointers. I will report back with my progress.

shawnsheridan big shout out! I got launcher pro from dayvg - I can also confirm that dayvg provides product support after I ran into a few installation hiccups which was fixed immediately. Successfully FDL/NCD coded additional parameters for anti-dazzle. Thanks for the pointers.

Two questions since i've been out of the coding game for awhile, just looking to get back the functionality i had enabled before the last software update which wiped all that out;

I had the tesla mode driving assistance with lane change enabled, and working

and i had the anti-dazzle lazer headlights working perfectly

now two things from my attempt tonight

1) i encountered an error in esysx when attempting to edit a CAFD file from the coding window - picture as you will see displaying the error. I believe it is a software error only as I'm still able to browse to the CAFD file manually and open it in the FDL editor (same thing the software is triyng to do no?)

2) all the FDL edits are still showing up when I load from the ECU, i attempted to make them and found all the changes made (still) and the settings activ instead of nicht-activ ... so if the changes are already on the cars ECU why are the features not working? is there something else I need to do to 'enable' the ECU to use these changes now...?

slightly confused on the process now, since the original plan is make changes to FDL, code it to the ECU, and done. but it seems that part has 'stuck' through the bmw software update ... so a little lost now on the next step!

even the removal of 5AP for the VO portion of the anti-dazzle change has stayed

Normaly closing and relaunching E-SysX will correct this.

thanks i'll try again, but does it make any difference to the way things are done?

it essentially makes picking the file easier, but if i search and load it myself it's the same step basically right?

The Edit FDL error is not a process related issue.

VO coding survives through software upgrades. That would explain why your VO doesn't have 5AP. Also depending on the FDL you are referring to — after you VO code anti-dazzle, a couple of them automatically change to aktiv:

C_HBA_DIM_ENA
C_HBA_GFHB_ENA

If you're referring to these, that's expected.

Are you sure your anti-dazzle isn't working? Was it working before the last update.

pretty sure , it's working as expected for north america, but not the full range like we see after the coding is completed - when i had the stuff coded before i could easily see the light tunnel forming around cars, now it happens but very rarely, and any sign or change in other cars will force it to turn off

the other indicator is like i said all the FDL edits I made for the lane change assist and drivers display (tesla mode) are still there, but it's also not active in the car

so it seems to me like all the edits persisted but I need to maybe re-code it into the ECU?

not sure that makes any sense, as it is pulling the data directly from the ECU already when I read it right?

that's why im saying im a bit stumped, because i went in to make the changes, going down the list and saw them already there.. so i was like ok what now...? I can't save the file because i didn't make any changes! lol

Sounds like you'll have to recode. Never seen this kind of problem before. Typically an update does clear your FDL coding. But seeing that you have issues with Esysx I'll wait to fix that and then check the CAFD values for each of those ECUs

Use Read (ECU), not Read (VCM).

Does not appear the option to send a PM to him, if I try to play the direct link appears the message "You do not have permission to view this page or perform this action.". This is both on an older account and on a brand new account.
