Solution 38875: Asm84CEPrgm command is not accessible in catalog of the latest version of the TI-84 Plus CE Operating System.

Why can’t I access the "Asm84CEPrgm" command in the latest version of the TI-84 Plus CE Operating System?

I understand you would like to know why access to the "Asm84CEPrgm" command was disabled with the latest update to the TI-84 Plus CE graphing calculator Operating System. I will be glad to provide information on this subject.

There are classroom exams and other test scenarios where simple calculator clearing or calculator resets are used instead of test modes such as Press-to-Test. This restriction strengthens calculator security to support those exam scenarios.

While the use of the Asm84CEPrgm command is now restricted when writing programs directly onto the calculator, its functionality remains. Programs that are written using computer tools such as the TI Connect CE Program Editor have access to the Asm84CEPrgm command in the catalog tree. Programs that use these commands to create an assembly program can then be linked to, edited and run on the calculator.
