I just downloaded this version (hp19c.exe date stamp = 18.09.2016 11:03), but when I tried to run it on my good old XP system all I got was an error that said this was not a valid Win32 application. ?!?

BTW your 67 emulator (and all others I tried so far) runs fine. And I love it. ;-)

BTW2: unlike the '67/97, the decimal point of most other HPs from that era does not occupy a full digit. Instead it is placed between the digits. As far as the font is concerned this is no problem, the classic LED font handles this with its regular period/comma. But I don't know if this a problem in terms of emulator programming. ;-)

BTW3: I'd suggest that the display region in the 19C pictures get a uniform dark red, like the 67, which makes the digits blend seamlessly into the background. With the '67 I am using RGB 43,32,38 for this. Or do you know a way of displaying a TTF font on transparent background ?-)
