Title: Nspire CX 4.5 Can't run anything past ndless installation <fixed<
Post by: boogyboy on January 08, 2018, 10:45:43 pm
Hey, so I have recently acquired a Ti Nspire CX version 4.5.0 And it sure wasn't just to make calculations and functions and whatever.
Though after figuring out how to install the application runner, Ndless, No .tns files will open no matter what I do.

I was sure I installed the right version because it was the only installer that would open on the calculator.
So I decided to try uninstalling the version I got to install a different one, but believe it or not the tns file that holds the ability to uninstall the Ndless version I am currently running would not open.

"The document format is not supported 'tns app name here'" Is the error message it gives me, every single time, with every file I try to open.
I don't know if it has to do with my version of the calculator or the files I'm trying to run, but weirdly enough I have found no similar problem on the internet so far similar to mine.

Anybody have any idea what may be occurring to make this happen?

@critor or @Adriweb might be able to help you. Unfortunately, I haven't used a TI-Nspire in about 2+ years so I don't remember what is the latest OS that supported Ndless and what was the latest version of Ndless.

Do you currently have an "Ndless installed !" message in green on the home screen ?

Do I just message them the jist of the problem then or wait for them to reply to this forum?

Ndless 4.5 should have worked for OS 4.5, yeah.

Which date code can you see on the back of your calculator ? It's at the right of the serial number, 1 letter (factory code) + 4 figures (MMYY) + 0, 1 or 2 letters (hardware revision, recent Nspire CX / CX CAS calculators have 2 letters).

Indeed I do.

Perfect, then Ndless is installed and active.
Which files are you trying to open directly ?

Quick update guys, started working suddenly.
Ndless disappeared when i opened it this morning, so i decided to re install the newest version and now everything works including the two apps from the links i put.
guess i must have just installed it wrong the first time.
