I had this problem on my 2006 2.0i. After changing the battery, on operating the roof to open both windows went down but after opening only the passengers window closed. On closing the roof the same thing happened. On searching the forum I found The Official Window Reset Procedure. http://www.zpost.com/forums/showthread.php?t=62834 I had to use this procedure a number of times until eventually the system worked properly. What I found was most importanwas to ensure that the one-touch operation of the window was erased both in up and down operation. This took a few goes to do it. Once the one-touch initialisation was erased, then go onto the next phase to program the window to operate properly. It does work but you have to persevere.
However I'm very pleased as it doesn't have to go to the garage for an expensive fix. Well done Forum, you've saved me a fortune in time and money.

I did what dice said in this thread. It still didn't work. I'm having numerous problems with my z4. Right indicator light flashing fast, error light on the dash, reversing sensors don't work (right one in particular) and the drivers window won't go up in auto but will when it goes down, all in the space of 4 days! I haven't even changed the battery.

Update:

I tried to do the reset thing for the window again and it works but now it's intermittent. Sometimes the window opens and closes. Sometimes it won't do anything! Argh!

I just had the same after I put a new battery on the car.

Worked first time. One touch up and down.

Ignition fully on (stage 2 full ignition)
Press and hold open, once at bottom, hold further 5 secs. Then press and hold up and wait another 5 secs at top.
Turn igintion off.

Worked first time for me.

@Dice... You're the MAN (or WOMAN)
After the Lotus seat swap it got confused.
I tried the proposed - go up & down- method and didn't work. Your method did.
