Can anyone assist me with this?

Now I am really frustrated!

I decided to go back to Windows 7 under Parallels on my Mac and give it a try there. I did a clean installation from scratch for LIFUTILS, Miniconda, and pyILPER. I followed all of the instructions, step by step. I now have pyILPER up and running under Windows 7, under Parallels, on my MacBook Pro.

I followed the instructions for getting the interactive terminal to work. I copied PILIMAGE.DAT to my working directory, and then mounted it. I copied KEYBOARD and then PILTERM onto my HP-71B. I ran PILTERM, and I saw the assignment of printer, display, and keyboard.

And, it works exactly the same as on my Mac! When I type on my Mac in the terminal window, nothing shows up, then when I hit ENDLINE on my HP-71B, all the characters I typed on my Mac show up on the screen and the HP-71B executes whatever I typed.

So, now both my Mac installation and also my Windows installation are working the same - both provide a good terminal display, but neither of them provide proper input by the terminal keyboard.


Any ideas or assistance will be greatly appreciated!
