Re: DM42 wins over WP34S in accuracy..

Nope. The 34S has the same accuracy in this case. The difference is in the UI of the 34S which only allows the entry of 12 digits at a time. If I do the following with DBLON:

1.23456789E16
ENTER
87654321
+
7777777
X
7777777
/

I get the expected result of 1.2345678987654321E16

Re: Updater software

hi, just now I've not a DM42, however I'm preparing and installing the software for it. Using the updater (dm1x_41_updater.exe) in Windows 10 inside my Mac OS X via Parallels, I get the error saying that Msvcp100.dll and msvcr100.dll are not installed. How to correct this error, please? Thanks, bes...

Re: I failed in updating firmware V3.1

Not including the QPSI might lead to some challenges. Hypothetical scenario: 3.1 no QPSI update 3.2 QPSI update 3.3 no QPSI update 3.4 no QPSI update A hypothetical user who has 3.1 installed waits a long time to update. When next they go to update 3.5 has been released. 3.5's release notes say tha...

Re: I failed in updating firmware V3.1

When it happened to me I didn't want to flash the QSPI, I had to do it when the menu instructed me to do so: I was downgrading firmware version since my unit started to act strangely (in hindsight because of QSPI fault). I agree with you that there will be circumstances where the QSPI will need to ...

Re: I failed in updating firmware V3.1

I'm curious why the OP felt the need to update the QSPI. It is clear from grsbank's 3.1 announcement that the update is not needed: "The QSPI chip's contents remains the same for versions 2.11.6, 3.0 and 3.1." Perhaps a stronger warning in the release notes would deter people from needlessly perform...

Re: My Calculator DM42 ist arrived ;-)

I had my DM11L arrive Saturday; I was ecstatic. My DM42 arrived today; I am euphoric! I must say that the the unit I received is of the highest calibre (it's 00357).

I hear you laughing there grsbanks.

Here are a few OFFIMG bitmaps to get you started. You can download all of them in a .zip file from this location:
Now that the board has been reorganized, wouldn't it make sense to move this sub-forum into the main DM42 forum?

Just a thought.

What about the third case? :D
Oh, I forgot.

When the DM42 is in molten lava, pressing EXIT leaves you without a hand.
