I have a problem with ISTA-P - it starts and loads OK with loader, but threre is absolutely no text displayed in its interface except the the status bar on top (see attached screens).
Everything was fine but I have upgraded from windows 7 to widows 10. Had to fix cable setup and now ISTA D works OK but in ISTA P all interface items (menus, tabs, grey-white strips etc.) are displayed and seem to work - i can navigate through them but "blindly" - but there is absolutely no text. Everything is "blank". For example if i go to session start I can see the radio-buttons but not the description of them.
Have reinstalled C+ redists, net frameworks are included in system (both 3.5 and 4.7.2).
I'm using Standalone "package" downloaded with torrent including Rheingold 4.03 + loader 6.1F (rev1) with K-D CAN emulator + OBD-USB cable.
in the right direction:
I have uninstalled all vcredists and installed the copies downloaded from internet pages of MS (in my language)
2015 vcredist did not install saying there is newer version (2017).
Next I have reinstalled piaredist (happen to have 2005 and 2010) and...
Tadam - it works
I have uninstalled piaredist 2010 and everything works OK.
Looks like the same problem is back again.
I think I did everything according to instruction and - still there is no text in interface of ISTA-P
This is standalone package of Rheingold 4.15.16 and ISTA-P 220.127.116.11
Windows 10 Pro 64 bit
4 GB RAM
ISTA-D, INPA, NCS, WinKfp etc - all works OK
ISTA-P worked OK for a while and now suddenly again the same fault is back.
I do not know what went wrong again.
I have installed all VC++ rediststs using "MPVC_11_setup.exe" found on Internet - all look like installed OK
I have checked .NETs - one by one - the installers say everything was installed already previously
I have isntalled the piaredist 2005 - says it is isntalled
I have updated java - no further updates are availailable
I have removed ISTA-D and ISTA-P.
I have run RCleaner 4.4
I have unzipped the whole ISTA-P with all data files
I have reset the loader 6.1 and put the password again
Still no go.
Install Windows 10 Pro 64bit Fresh,
Use Aio Installer,
Use the including vcredist multlang in tools folder
Install Net Framework 2.0 and 3.5 ( IF Aio Doesn't)
Make sure the Firewall is turned off as it can block the JAVA runtimes and cause errors in ISTA-P
No antivirus should be installed,
ISTA-P should be working fine after this, Get the latest 18.104.22.168 from here and re try again,
I have not seen this problem for a long time, I have NEVER seen it on Windows 10 the only time I found this error was in Windows 7 as I didn't have the latest Internet Explorer installed no pictures would load, Updated Windows 7 and Java etc all fine,
I say try a clean Windows install.
Standard tools is not going to make a difference to how ISTA-P is going to load the only error I have seen it show is if you don't install
Patched_EDIABAS_7.3.0 or an Ediabas and that's the loader asking for it not ISTA-P
The last, I would suggest you guys get a plug-and-play disk with software installed already before delivery. This is the site my friend used: http://www.chinacardiags.com/wholesale/new-super-version-bmw-icom-a2-b-c-diagnostic-amp-programming-tool-with-software-2188.html
