I downloaded the 1001 version and installed it on my Windows 7 partition, and it does indeed come up on the screen. I can type some numbers on the numpad and Enter, and operators like * + - /, but when I try to use the mouse to click on the graphical representation of the HP-50G keyboard next to the display window nothing happens.

As far as I remember, they should not "click". I use the real pc keyboard (of which the mapping is not yet well documented but it is ok).

In practice you have the commands reachable by letter (for example pressing 'y' is like pressing '1/x' unless alpha is activated and then 'y' shows) Then you have the numbers that are like 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0 on the keyboard. The dot is dot. Space is space. Enter is enter. *,-,+ should be equal on the keyboard (I do not remember correctly) while division is 'z'.

alpha, right and left shift should be shift, ctrl, tab or a combination of those.

Unfortunately the newrpl desktop version now does not run anymore on XP so I cannot test on my thinclient and I am lazy to open win10pro.

I tried running the PC simulator and also found that the image of the HP50G keyboard seems to be a non functional decoration. The only keys that initially seemed to work were 0-9 and *+-/ ENTER. Since I cannot find any documentation on how to use the emulator, and can't find a wiki, (not referred to on, I experimented and here is what I found.

O enters ''
TAB enters alpha mode
CAPSLOCK left shift
CTRL right shift
DELETE drops 1

After that it gets confusing. hitting 'd' key emits 'a', hitting 'f' makes some menu change, but I don't know how to select from that menu. 'q' key emits '^' the 'w' emits + or - alternately (its different every time). 'r' emit square root, 't' emits '()'. 'Y' emits INV and 'u' emits TAN().'p' and 'd' make a menu appear but again, not sure how to select operations.

How do I enter << and { and [ ?
Can I enter programs and edit them in the PC simulator? Is there a simple example/tutorial for doing this?
What is the PC simulator for newRPL meant for - can I use it like a 50G with all the features or just for some limited features, or just running RPL?
