    Exclamation Ti Programs

    I put math programs into my TI-89 Titanium but they donít seem to be working. I go under Var-Link and I see the programs there. I highlight the program and press enter but nothing happens.

    Can someone give me a step by step on how to correctly download a program and use it on the calculator?

    Once you have transferred the program from your computer to the calculator, you can go to the home screen, then go to the Var-Link menu, select the program you want to use, and then hit enter. Now, you should be back at the home screen with the program name in the command line. Be sure to close the parenthesis before hitting enter!! Otherwise there will be an error.

    It doesnt do anything when I close the parenthesis. I downloaded the programs from
    Welcome - ticalc.org and then unzipped them and used TI Connect to transfer the files. The files are on the calculator but they dont work when I try to use them.

    Am I dragging the files into the wrong folder on the Ti Connect? Should I even unzip the files?

    Ah..that site. I contribute things on there every now and then.

    What kind of programs are they? Are they games? They may require shells or a special application to run.

    I haven't downloaded any games yet. Just basic math/science programs. For example, I downloaded Periodic Table 89 v2.9 (period892.zip). I then unzipped the folder, then use the TI Connect and load it into the Ti 89. When I try using the program, it doesnt work.

    I also tried downloading adp.zip, eulerapx.zip, and Super Riemann Sums, Version 2.01:. Sadly none of them actually worked on the Ti

    Try installing the Kernel or Kerno Shell [I'd recommend installing Kerno]. Then you should be able to run your programs

    Should I unzip it before I load into the Ti? And when I drag into Ti Connect, does it matter which folder it goes into? ^^;

    Always unzip the file!

    When you drag it into TI-Connect, it gives you folder options [where do you want it to go] before it transfers the program from your computer to the calculator. The default is main. However, you can organize programs by subjects. For example, on my TI-89 Titanium, I have multiple folders for mathematics and physics programs. You don't have to, but I'd recommend creating separate folders.

    Well, I downloaded periodic.zip, unzipped the files, and dragged them into the Ti connect. All the files downloaded into the calculator but when I close the parenthesis all it says is 'Done'.

    I did. I think I somehow changed the screen resolution because I can't see a thing. It's very bright. Do you know how I can return it to normal

    Hold the diamond button down and push the + button to make the screen darker.

    Since you've installed Kerno, try running the programs now.

    Thanks! It made the screen better ^_^

    I still got an error message now.

    In the periodic.zip file, there is 4 Ti Connect Programs that got downloaded. The only one that works is the periodic chart where I can view the date. None of the others work

    Error: Non-Algebraic variable in expression

    Science\hufflib()
