My nucleonic, electronic, and supersonic PC is too modern and won't run LIFUTIL in a WindowsXP command prompt window. I installed LIFUTIL on an HP-110+ successfully but the software doesn't run, it appears as though the display is hung up. Did HP produce a special version of LIFUTIL for the HP-110+ or does anyone know of a version of LIFUTIL that will run on the HP-110+ ? Thanks for the help.

Best Regards
John Pierce


hi my mind that all translation pgms on hpil are made up for
pocket little calculators like 48 34 67 and ..bla bla
but not for hp ms dos COMPUTERS like series100 200 9000 etc
so all supposition of compatibility with .... is not not
right or not?


For the HP9000 series computers, no conversion was necessary,

because they used LIF format for diskette media.

IIRC, HP Vectra PCs, and maybe the older Series 100 machines like the HP-150,

had a conversion utility (LIFUTIL..) shipped with the OS (CP/M or DOS).

For the other calculators which are not capable of HP-IL,

and which cannot make use of files on LIF media,

there are no conversion utilities.



hi raymond many of your infos are useful...
do you know the structure of the lif format?
or perhaps the old dif format translator?
i have some info else where.looking...


Hi Chris,

the LIF structure is explained in some articles

in the articles section of the hpmuseum,

and to a certain extent, in the HP-IL module,

Extended IO module, or 9114 disc drive manual.

Keywords for the hpmuseum articles: Tony Duell, Christoph Klug, ...

There's a chance that you'll find additional info on
