    Programs for most current Casio models!

    Download programs direct from this page for FX7400, CFX9850, FX1.0 and FX2.0 series. All are saved in *.cat format - 100% compatible with the official Casio FA-122/3 PC-Calculator software. Please email charlie @ charliewatson . com if any program fails to perform as expected after checking below for recent de-bugs/updates.

    View typical program screens before download... try the Preview Slideshow Previews are very low bandwidth - typically around 5kb. More previews soon.
    Please note: slideshow is designed for JavaScript enabled NS.v3+ and IE.v4+ browsers.

    No more typing!
    Download programs and games straight off the net into your calculator with a mail order PC - Calc cable You can also free up your calculator memory by storing notes, programs, etc on your PC. Also available are calculator to calculator cables.

    Free software
    Casio Solutions recommends you download the free Casio FA-122 software to use with CFX and FX7400G+ models and FA-123 software if you use an Algebra FX model. (FA-123 will also work with both CFX and FX7400G+ models, but it will corrupt certain commands and text.)

    Blame Bill if your programs now think they're security catalogs! Installing IE5 registers the *.cat extension as a security catalog file type - which means double-clicking a program now fails to open it. See technical links for help to restore things the way they were!

    How to download! Try one click on the download button. If your FA-122/3 software opens automatically with the programs then fine. If anything else happens (eg white screen full of program code or error message about invalid security catalog) then return to this page, right-click the download button, save the programs onto your computer, start the FA-122/3 software and open the saved programs through the software.
