Default How do I start coding?

I have an old computer with INPA,ISTA, NCS expert, WinKFP and a few others but a lot of these programs seem kind of bugged, as in some of the options on them are bolded out and don't work. If I was to completely wipe out this computer, where can I get trusted, genuine copies of these programs? I don't know if there is a share drive with all these things, but I would prefer not to get a pirated version, if I need to pay so be it. I already have a K+DCAN cable too.

There was a time that BMW ran a site to buy ITSA legally but I can't find it anymore. It was a subscription I think and it was in the thousands. Designed for shops and not end users.

There's a lot of ways to skin this cat so to speak.

To get it out of the way - this stuff isn't available for purchase legally. It's all leaked from BMW. Anyone who's selling it doesn't have the rights to. BMW themselves for the most parts seem to have been letting it go. Perhaps they realize that making this stuff accessible creates repeat customers.
