INPA IFH-0018: INITIALIZATION ERROR Solution

Working solution to INPA EDIABAS  INITIALIZATION ERROR.

 

Error message 1:
ApiCheckJobStatus: Error #95
SYS-0005: OBJECT FILE NOT FOUND
API job error or no such result !
inpa-Edibas-error
Ediabas error #95 means that some INPA script (.IPO file) is requesting a result from some .prg file that does not exist. This is most probably caused by a missing .prg file.
 
Error message 2:
2.5 IFH-0018: Inizialisation Error
INPA doesn’t work but Toolset yet
 
The error occurs if a SGBD is running by INPA or CASCADE. If the same SGBD is loaded in
the Toolset it will not occure an inizialisation error.
 
Reason : The communications port COM1 doesn’ exist, but COM3 yet. The Toolset is
working without the inizialisation error, because the file OBD.ini exists in the
directory C:\Ediabas\bin\. But the file OBD.ini has to exist in the direcory
C:\Windows.
Solution: Copy the file OBD.ini in the directory C:\Windows or create a new one. (Creation
of OBD.ini q.v. 3.3).
 
Error message 3:
Edibas error:
ApiCheckJobStatus: Error #28
IFH-0018: INITIALIZATION ERROR.
API job error or no such result!
Varuantenkonrolle:
IFH-0018: INITIALIZATION ERROR. Das Programm wird abgebrochen!
inpa-IFH-0018-INITIALIZATION-ERROR
Reason: Ediabas is attempting to access port COM1. However, the port doesn’t exist, or it
has been taken by another programme (e.g. HotSync from Palm, infrared).
Solution: Install a COM1 interface or free it.
 
Real feedback on INPA initialization error with solution above:
Yesterday my BMW INPA K+DCAN software showed error: INITIALIZATION ERROR. killed several hours with this knock-off. The car i connected to is BMW 2011 – e92 – LCI.
To set the COM to 1, obd.ini is also COM1.
I seek help from forums and one of them provided a solution to the problem:
(solution offered by an experienced user with K+Dcan cable)
Modify the EDIBAS.INI as follows
RemoteHost
; Description : server address/name
; Default = –
; RemoteHost = Desmo16
Desmo16 being my computer’s name (note that this must be maximum 8 chars)
and
Port
; Description : IP communication port
; Value : 1000 < port < 3000
;
; Spezialfall OP(P)S /ICOM:
; Value : 6801 ;OBD-Treiber (CAN)
; Value : 6802 ;Most-Treiber
;
; Default = –
; Port = 6801
OBD2 notice that you should be sure port is 6801 as mine was 3000. It worked like a charm after i made these mods.

Yup, you either need to move your usb cable to the USB port that matches COM1, or change the mapping in device manager. AND edit the odb.ini file to match COM port number.
