Berni:  Riglol Keygen 1.03d has been required staring with Firmware version 1.08.  And is expected to work for you with your version 1.14 as per Post/Reply #67 above by W7NGA.  Yes, Windows 7 x64  works fine with Riglol Keygen 1.03d (and also 1.03c).  And you MUST use Keygen 1.03d with you current DP832 Firmware.  I assume that you are entering the Option License Keys directly (if Not, please try this) in the DP832 via it's front panel, and not by using UltraSigma (I don't recall now if UltraSigma works for entering Option Keys into the DP832, but it may not ?).
I don't know what else to suggest to you at this time.   Ted

Yes i been entering them manually and its incredibly slow and annoying to do with the front panel. What command do i have to use to send it a license code? I have tried ":SYSTem:OPTion:INSTall <code>" but it says that the remote command is incorrect on the screen.

If you can't be bothered with SCPI, then the other option is a USB flash drive. The details are in the manual, which I screenshotted in this post. Also reproduced here:



Edit: From same page on the manual, the correct SCPI command for the DP832 is :LIC:SET

Nope SCPI does not work and i tried the file on USB stick method. Did take the file but shown a "Installation fails" message as i get while manualy entering it.

I have recheked many times that the serial number is indeed right, later tried copypasting it from SCPI and it was indeed indetical. And i repeated the firmware upgrade process in case something went wrong, still the same. Is it possible the riglol tool has a bug for certain serial numbers?

Here is how i generated it "riglol.exe DP8C155202659 F3PT" and it gave me "MLFLLA33AF6UKN3LTPA7Z43TGKVT". I have attached the .lic file i used(renamed to txt)

It's possible that you got locked out for too many failures; I don't know if the DP832 tells you like the scopes do. Try leaving the PSU on for 12 hours and see if that makes a difference. Assuming that your serial number is correct, you did the same thing as I did on mine and it worked for me on 1.13 a while back.

To be safe i left it running for 35 hours since thats the duration of the trial licenses. Typed it in manually to be safe, double checked it, hit OK and it WORKS! :-+ :-+ :-+ Thanks for the help!

So yes there is a lockout period if a license code is entered incorrectly too many times. How long it is i don't know but waiting 35 hours did it for me.

I don't know why it doesn't work, but I suggest you type the Option License Key in manually.
It takes a little bit of time, but that worked for me.

I just received my DP832 (not-A) I purchased 2nd hand.
It came with firmware 01.04; boot loader 1.05
It came already hacked, so all options are available.

Before I make a mistake, I know would like to ask for your opinion:
1) Is it save to upgrade to the latest firmware version (currently 01.14.00.03) without loosing the options?

2) Are there any disadvantages known if I upgrade?

3) Is there really no way to activate the multi color display on a DP832? I found this thread: https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/need-help-hacking-dp832-for-multicolour-option/msg828662/#msg828662
but they did not find a solution.

Thanks for your help!

How about the newest firmware,  00.01.16.00.02 (from January 2019).  Is it safe to install it on a hacked device, ie. does it preserve the installed options?

Yes, the hack worked with the latest firmware. You can update your DP832 to a DP832A with color interface following this guide. https://www.eevblog.com/forum/testgear/need-help-hacking-dp832-for-multicolour-option/msg2582898/#msg2582898
