Windows 8 Compatibility

Monday, November 12th, 2012
TinyTERM versions 4.61 (July 2009) and higher are fully supported on Windows 8. However, TinyTERM must run in the Desktop interface. It is not enabled for the Metro interface at this time.
Q: What about Windows RT, like on the Microsoft Surface tablet?
A: Right now TinyTERM does not run on Windows RT. We will be producing a version of TinyTERM for RT in the near future.

TinyTERM versions 4.8.0 (February 2013) and higher are fully supported on Windows 8. However, TinyTERM must run in the Desktop interface. It is not enabled for the Metro interface at this writing.

TinyTERM does not currently run on Windows RT. The CPUs used for the RT platform do not support instruction sets required by TinyTERM for Windows.

TinyTERM Loses Focus When Switching Applications

Friday, December 30th, 2011

TinyTERM 4.7.0 will lose focus from the emulator window when switching between Windows applications. The focus often goes to the address bar, so that hitting Enter will open a second session with the same connection information. If the address bar is turned off under Options | Global Preferences, this does not happen. But the focus is still lost.

Prior versions of TinyTERM do not exhibit this behavior.

CR 991, fixed in TinyTERM 4.7.1

No Server License

Monday, February 1st, 2010

When running TinyTERM version 4.63 or higher, you may get an error message that reads, “This copy of TinyTERM is not licensed to run on Microsoft server operating systems.” It is most common on Windows Vista and later Windows versions.

This message indicates that the product is not licensed to run in a terminal server environment. TinyTERM uses concurrent licensing in Microsoft terminal server environments such as Windows 2008 Server.

If you believe you have received this message in error, please contact Century Software technical support at support@centurysoftware.com or 801-268-3088. Please have your activation key and your Windows version available. We will work with you to get this issue resolved.

License Count Exceeded

Monday, February 1st, 2010

When running TinyTERM version 4.63 or higher, you may see a “License Count Exceeded” error dialog. This happens when you open more windows than your product is licensed for. For example, a three-user TinyTERM Plus license will only allow three windows to open. The fourth will see this error.

This is by design. In terminal server environments such as Microsoft Windows 2008 Server, TinyTERM Plus is licensed concurrently. Only the licensed number of TinyTERM instances may be run at one time.

You may get this message in error on standalone PCs. If this is happening, and you believe it should not be, please contact technical support at support@centurysoftware.com or 801-268-3088. Please have your 25-character activation key available, and let us know which version of Windows you are using. We will resolve this issue for you.

Product Versions and OS Support

Monday, July 2nd, 2007

Version 3.3 combined the TinyTERM and TERM for Windows product lines, including ending the serial number in the letters EM. (No serial number ends in the letters OEM. Any serial number in that format actually uses the number zero, not the letter O.)

All products were released on CD from this point on.

Support for TinyTERM 3.3 and earlier Windows products ended in July 1999.

TinyTERM 3.3 Server Mode

Wednesday, May 16th, 2007

TinyTERM Application Developer 3.3 has a server mode. When that’s running, TinyTERM monitors a given port or modem, waiting for an inbound connection. This allows you to dial into your PC and use it as a file transfer server.

To use server mode, you must first select the connection type. Go to the Configure menu and select Communications. Select either MODEM or NETWORK LOGIN, then click OK.

Next, you’ll need to set up the server itself. Go to the Configure menu and select Server. You have a choice of Hostmode Server, WTERMCRC Server, Zmodem Server or FTP. The latter three allow you to connect for file transfers only, using the specified protocol. For purposes of this document, select Hostmode Server. This allows you to connect and communicate from any terminal emulation software.

Set the hostmode options you need. You must choose either Async for modem connections or Network for telnet connections. Once this is configured, click OK. Hostmode is now configured.

To start TinyTERM’s hostmode, go to the Action menu and select Server Mode. A server dialog will come up, noting that TinyTERM Application Developer is waiting for a connection of the specified type. That dialog will disappear while a user is logged in, then reappear when that user logs out. Only one user can login to hostmode at a time.

When you want to end hostmode, type Ctrl-C to close the dialog box. TinyTERM will return to terminal mode.

Error (4547) Method Redraw Called With Invalid Object Instance

Thursday, May 3rd, 2007

When running TinyTERM 4.50 on Windows XP, non-administrator users get the error, “Error (4547) Method ‘Redraw’ called with invalid object instance,” followed by, “”Error (1808) Could not run CSL entry point: main.” Only administrator users could run the program.

CR 773, fixed in TinyTERM 4.52

Explorer Caused an Error in Kernel32.dll

Wednesday, April 18th, 2007

This error comes from running a TinyTERM version prior to 4.10 on Windows Me. Only TinyTERM versions 4.10 and higher are supported in that environment.

Serial Number Does Not Match Activation Key

Friday, April 13th, 2007

There are several possible solutions to this error:

  1. If the version printed on the activation key card or listed in the license email does not match the install version, then this error will come up. Verify that the serial number you have matches the TinyTERM version you are installing. For example, older serial numbers will not work with the current TinyTERM download. And the serial number that comes with a TinyTERM CD is specific to that version of TinyTERM.
  2. Check the serial number and activation key for typographical errors. The serial number will always be 11 characters long: one to three letters, six to eight numerals, then two letters. No serial number ends in the letters “OEM”. The capital letter O will actually be the number zero in all cases.The activation key is always eight letters. Depending on the font, this may make the lower-case letter l look like the number 1. It’s never a number, though.
  3. When installing TinyTERM 4.52 from CD, you’re seeing a timing error. Despite what the install says, it’s not ready for the license yet.In this case, click the 30-Day Eval button instead. The install will continue from there. Once the install is done, go to Start | Programs | TinyTERM and run the License Manager.

    In License Manager, click the Upgrade button. Enter your serial number and activation key, then click Update License. Close the License Manager. TinyTERM will then be licensed, rather than an eval copy.

  4. For a serial number that starts with the letters MMA, do not let the CD autorun. Instead, on the TinyTERM CD you’ll find a folder named “setup32_v33.” Run the setup.exe program in that directory instead. That will accept your license information.

CTL3D32.DLL Error

Wednesday, April 11th, 2007

Starting TinyTERM 3.3 on Windows 95 may give the error, “CTL3D32.DLL error.” Replacing the file does not fix the issue.

This happens when there are too many ctl3d32.xxx and ctl3d32.dll files on the PC. Remove all copies of both files, except the one in C:\Windows\System. Then reboot the PC.
