Hello,

[UPDATED] I added a few items to the release note below to better highlight changes where commands were removed, or modified.


New versions should be up on the FTP now. Connectivity kit check for update will find them. If your network blocks direct connection, the direct link can be found at "ftp.hp.com/pub/calculators/Prime/".

The high level information:
  • Better horizontal and vertical pinch zoom functionality.
  • Better statistics calculations and functionality.
  • Touch screen curve sketching and automatic recognition of curve type and equation fitting.
  • Improved help throughout the system.
  • Quality and reliability improvements.
  • Better support for USB 3.0 system update connectivity.

Detailed release information for those interested:

RE: New Version: 2015.0427
FW uploaded just now in the Prime, ok!

I'm waiting for CK and Emulator, still...

Then I'll try the huge amount of improvements!

thank you to the Team!

RE: New Version: 2015.0427
If you are on a USB3 port:

Work-Arounds
A. Try a different USB port
a. Cancel the firmware upgrade process in the HP Connectivity Kit.
b. Unplug the calculator from the problem USB port.
c. Reset (using the hole on the back of the HP Prime Calculator).
d. Plug the calculator into a different USB port on the PC.
e. Check to make sure the calculator appears in the HP Connectivity Kit window.
f. Using the HP Connectivity Kit as before, attempt to upgrade firmware.
HINT: try ports on USB 2.0 hubs, even if connected under a USB 3.0 Root Device.

B. Force the re-detection of the calculator (You will need administrative privileges)
a. Leave the HP Connectivity Kit waiting/hung in the firmware update process.
b. Leave the HP Prime Calculator in recovery mode. Do not reset it.
c. Go into the device manager and “uninstall” the USB devices that show up in an error state (denoted by a yellow or red warning sign). It will look something like this:
[Image: error_state.png]
d. Click “Scan for new hardware” under the “Action” menu
e. Observe that the HP Connectivity Kit should stop waiting and start the firmware upgrade process once the OS declares the device ready for use.


NOTE: This Prime firmware update will fix this issue. You may have to perform this work- around as you are updating this time, but not again after that.

RE: New Version: 2015.0427
Same here.
Update fails with calculator hanging in recovery mode. Really frustrating considering an automated update procedure! (re-installing usb drivers helps as usual)

The emulator refuses update. That means nothing is happening.

Same here. Sad I get

HP Prime recovery mode V13.
then nothing.
The first time I tried it, I at least got a progress bar on the PC showing 0% progress but now I don't even get that.

Update: It started working fine last night. Now both HW A and HW C calcs are running the new version.
Thanks to all!

RE: New Version: 2015.0427
Toml, try going to the device manager. Chances are hight the prime i.e. usb device is faulty. Automatic re-installation could solve.

Well the emulator updated well the last time. Any ideas about that nasty thing?

I cannot reproduce this one: I get as result the same symbolic form... \( \int{\frac{1}{sin(x^{-1})}}dx \)
Am I wrong?

RE: New Version: 2015.0427
Updated succesfully.
However I wonder if the too close minus symbol to fractions (not easily visible) when using largest font size is ever going to be fixed.

Thanks for the update

One question. Is HP Prime Virtual Calculator free software? I do not have HP Prime calculator. Do I have all the rights to install this program on my Computer? Software legality, if I have not bought a calculator.

Yes, it is free and can be downloaded from these sites below:

RE: New Version: 2015.0427
I wanted to chime in and say that I had zero problems installing the update for the CK, my Prime calculator (Ver A), and the virtual calculator on my Mac Mini (OS/X 10.10.3) running Windows 7 Home Premium (32 bit) under VMware Fusion (7.1.1). I immediately noticed an improvement in the CK's connection to my physical calculator with the list of programs and applications being correct (complete). The mono-space character set in the CK editor is also an improvement, although being able to increase the font size would be welcome... A lot to look at and verify, but, a big thank you to the development team!

Mine has the same hardware / software footprint...

Have you tried resetting the device (using the hole on the back of the HP Prime Calculator)? If that does not work, you could also try to re-install the firmware and see if you still have the problem.

I tested to see if the language was the issue, and I still could not replicate the problem on my hardware...

RE: New Version: 2015.0427
I don't see DATEDAY in the catalog. What does it do? Is it like DAYOFWEEK?

Also the MEMORY command returns

{99F51C:64h,#C3CF000:64h}

What does Help mean by "the individual integer at position MEMORY"? Is it like PEEK in BASIC?
I get a syntax error when trying MEMORY(1) with an integer on the stack.

The User's Guide hasn't been updated yet.
