Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.14 / DM42-3.14

I’m not having this keyboard issue with v3.14 on my DM42. I do have “Slow Auto-repeat” selected in “Settings”, although I don’t see how this might cause the reported problem of lost entries. Perhaps this problem is in hardware ?

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.14 / DM42-3.14

Can you please re-issue this update with the newest version 2.4.2 of Free42, or do we have to wait another four months to get the latest version of Free42 ? I'm curious - which features in Free42 2.3.x and 2.4.x are so compelling that a couple hours into this version of DM42 you're looking for the ...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.14 / DM42-3.14

Can you please re-issue this update with the newest version 2.4.2 of Free42, or do we have to wait another four months to get the latest version of Free42 ? On average, releases have been every 2-3 months lately. How many calculator manufacturers do you know who provide firmware updates at all, let...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.13 / DM42-3.13

I installed the 3.13 update and it seems to work fine. However, it seems to reset itself after not using it for an hour or so. And, the settings reset. Not sure what's going on. During the install did you keep your calculator connected to the computer USB port to avoid drain on the battery ? The fl...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.13 / DM42-3.13

Except that my Win XP computer did not recognize my DM42 when I placed it in USB Disk mode and connected it to a USB port. Only after I installed the DM42 USB driver that is used for flashing from the computer via cable was I able to connect my DM42 to my computer to access its FAT drive. That'll b...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.13 / DM42-3.13

Correct. It's only up until Windows XP that Microsoft required vendor-specific drivers even for mass storage devices. From Vista onwards, Windows included generic USB storage drivers already rendering vendor-specific drivers unnecessary. Even Windows 98 and Windows 2000 had generic USB mass storage...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.13 / DM42-3.13

Thanks, guys ! :D It never even occurred to me that I could simply place the calculator in USB Disk mode and just connect it to any USB port in my WIN 10 computer. Sure enough, it was recognized although I did see a warning from Windows that there was something wrong with the device that needed to b...

Re: UPDATE: DMCP-3.13 / DM42-3.13

I updated all the way from Version 3.5 to 3.13 by direct FAT disk update using the combined file without any problems and also updated the Help file. I needed two computers to accomplish this feat, an old Win XP desktop computer to copy the files via USB and my brand new Win 10 desktop to download t...
