=> they can be automatically downloaded & installed by the installer.
Note: if you are using 'The GiMP', you might encounter DLL problems...
The GTK+ package (1) provided with the GiMP might not be fully compatible with one used by TiLP/TiEmu.
The package (2) requested by TiLP/TiEmu may be compatible with the GiMP.
Thus, if you are using The GiMP, you are strongly encouraged to uninstall (1) and install (2).
1°) Extra manual configuration is required in the following situations:
a) Installing TI-Connect(TM) / TI-Connect CE(TM) / TI-Nspire Computer [Link/Student/Teacher]
Software(TM) and TILP side by side. Automated configuration for such case is discouraged
by the authors of the method for achieving this aim.
The following steps assume that TI-Connect / TINC(L)S is already installed:
* download the filter driver installer and install it, using the instructions given at , section "Filter Driver Installation";
* launch the filter wizard (accessible from the new entry in the Start menu) when the
device (SilverLink, 84+ family, 89T, 84+SE family, Nspire) you want to use with both TILP
and the other software is plugged *in*;
* install the filter driver for that particular device;
* run the TILP installer.
After this, the device ought to work in both TILP and TI-Connect [CE], or
TILP and (TINCLS or TINCS), one at a time.
b) Installing TILP on Windows 8 and later
After installing TILP, you need to use Zadig ( )
to force USB driver install.
* after launching Zadig, select "Options" in the tool bar, then select
"List All Devices".
This should make any connected device appear in the drop down list.
* select the libusb-win32 (v1.2.6.0) driver by clicking the up or down arrows next
to the driver name, then trigger the reinstallation. This can take a lot of time.
In case you're curious about the reasons of this state of fact:
* the root cause is that Windows requires drivers for USB devices in vendor-specific class,
which is all TI graphing calculators and corresponding USB cables expose;
* TI's proprietary software and TILP (libticables) cannot use each other's drivers,
for both licensing and functionality reasons;
* Windows hates having more than one driver for any given piece of hardware. One needs to
resort to platform-specific complexity known as "filter driver" to work around that;
* the authors of both libusb-win32 and Zadig advise against automatic install, AFAWCT.
2°) This setup may download & install some extra libraries (GTK+ 2.24).
The GTK+ package includes the Wimp (Windows IMPersonator) theme engine which gives
Windows look & feel (includes XP theming). Is also included the GTK theme selector.
3°) If anyone is getting one of these:
- ** WARNING **: Couldn't load font "MS Sans Serif 8" falling back to "Sans 8"
- ** ERROR **: file shape.c line 75: assertion failed: (glyphs->num_glyphs > 0)
or any other warning or error message regarding fonts/glyphs, the fix is to
open your C:\Program Files\Shared Files\Gtk\2.0\etc\gtk-2.0\gtkrc and to add this:
style "user-font"
widget_class "*" style "user-font"
This forces GTK+ to use a compatible font (Arial) and reportedly fixes both
the aforementioned problems, and probably others too.
4°) If you are getting any errors with DLLs, such as "The procedure entry point
atk_relation_set_add_relation_by_type could not be located in the dynamic link
library libatk-1.0-0.dll", make sure you have one and only ONE version of the
GTK+ DLLs. If unsure, remove all GTK+ packages and install one again.
5°) This setup will:
- copy USB drivers into C:\Program Files\{Common Files}\LPG Shared\drivers\usb,
- and register them into the Plug&Play database.
Simply plug your link cable: Windows should detect a new device and automatically
install it.
See instructions above for installing alongside TI-Connect / TI-Nspire Computer (Link) Software.
6°) This setup will install the DhaHelper driver for Windows NT4/2000/XP machines.
This step may require an administrator account (at least for NT4).
You may need to REBOOT your machine after installation (if you plan to
use a parallel or serial link cable).
DhaHelper is copyrighted (c) 2004 Sascha Sommer and released under GPL license.
Source code is available from <>.
7°) This setup will install the GNU 'wget' utility for download of GTK+
8°) This setup will install/update the TiLP framework (libti* and drivers) which is
installed as shared components since TiLP v1.07, TiEmu v3.01 or GFM v1.00.
Any software using the TiLP framework will take advantage of this update.
The installer automatically creates program entries in the Windows Startup menu.
