New TI-Nspire Computer Link 3.6
« on: December 06, 2013, 10:00:58 am »
With the discovery of the TI-Nspire 3.6 softwares in a previous news, we noticed that there were some connectivity changes.

We are therefore not suprised to discover today a new 3.6 version of the TI-Nspire Computer Link ! ;D
Compared with TI-Nspire softwares, the TI-Nspire Computer Link has the advantage not to include any emulation or simulation of the calculator, which allows it to start much faster, which makes transfers much more intuitive (no need to look for such things in an obscure hidden part of the interface) and which requires no license number.


Apparently , version 3.6 looks identical to the previous version 3.2.

Following our previous experiences, it seems that the installation is only necessary if you need to transfer data with a wireless TI-Nspire running OS 3.6.
But if you install it, you lose the possibility of transferring data with wireless TI-Nspire running earlier OSes 3.1 and 3.2.
To our knowledge it is now impossible to keep wireless connectivity with all TI-Nspire OSes from the same software anymore.  :banghead:


As far as we know, the choice to install it or not has no consequence on wired USB connectivity. You can go on using any OS in that case.

WARNING
 If you have only dependence on TI Computer Link and no Student/Teacher Software, then do not download the link 3.6

I tried it on my mac(it also has student software) and it does not accept my nlaunched 3.1

Ah, this is interesting ;)
So TI did hide another little surprise for us in it - how cute :P

What does it reject ?  the last nlaunch.tcc/tco/tnc/tno file ?
Because it then should be the same problem with Ndless.

Can't you just uninstall TI-Nspire Computer Link 3.6 and reinstall TI-Nspire Computer Link 3.2 ?

Although it's nice that they keep the computer software around (for the sake of people who have no license number for the student software and who can't get TiLP to work), I am not going to upgrade, simply because I am scared that they added some limitations against OS 3.1 users or programs, and even if so far it seems mostly Navigator-related, I am scared that there is something else wrong behind all of this.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

@hking1
I've just tried installing Nlaunch on a TI-Nspire CX CAS using the new TI-Nspire Computer Link 3.6 and it did perfectly work on the first try, from the first step to the last step.

Could you elaborate, please ?

What's saying that ? The calculator or the computer ?

Does it force you to update ?

So the popup doesn't prevent you from installing Nlaunch, does it ?
