• To anyone looking to acquire commercial radio programming software:

    Please do not make requests for copies of radio programming software which is sold (or was sold) by the manufacturer for any monetary value. All requests will be deleted and a forum infraction issued. Making a request such as this is attempting to engage in software piracy and this forum cannot be involved or associated with this activity. The same goes for any private transaction via Private Message. Even if you attempt to engage in this activity in PM's we will still enforce the forum rules. Your PM's are not private and the administration has the right to read them if there's a hint to criminal activity.

    If you are having trouble legally obtaining software please state so. We do not want any hurt feelings when your vague post is mistaken for a free request. It is YOUR responsibility to properly word your request.

    To obtain Motorola software see the Sticky in the Motorola forum.

    The various other vendors often permit their dealers to sell the software online (i.e., Kenwood). Please use Google or some other search engine to find a dealer that sells the software. Typically each series or individual radio requires its own software package. Often the Kenwood software is less than $100 so don't be a cheapskate; just purchase it.

    For M/A Com/Harris/GE, etc: there are two software packages that program all current and past radios. One package is for conventional programming and the other for trunked programming. The trunked package is in upwards of $2,500. The conventional package is more reasonable though is still several hundred dollars. The benefit is you do not need multiple versions for each radio (unlike Motorola).

    This is a large and very visible forum. We cannot jeopardize the ability to provide the RadioReference services by allowing this activity to occur. Please respect this.

Hello all and thanks in advance for any help or advice given.

My fire department is working on updating radios and was fortunate enough to receive some older ones from a neighboring department. Most are HT1225 and CDM1225 which I have experience and have purchased the software from past programming needs.

Along with the radios are two M1225 radios that the chief would like to put in his car and the assistant chief's car. I was given the 3.1 version of the software from a programmer friend, but have had no luck with getting this to work through virtual machine.

My question is/are where can I find the CPS 4.0 (to hopefully use with an old XP we have), or has anyone had luck with getting 3.1 to work through a Windows 95 virtual machine?

I do not have a MOL account. I purchased the software with cable from dealer prior to him going out of business. Which is partly why we’re in the position we’re in.

Thank you sir, yea been trying to find a 4.0 but only come up with the 3.1 which is what was given to me. Seems the 4.0 is strangely elusive, especially considering the age of the software.

I've never had any luck getting even 4.0 to run on virtual machine... I use an older laptop with XP to program our 1225's with no problem. We have a couple dozen M1225's we've migrated to pov's and even several P1225's still in use for the Jr's etc.
Very good old radios for rural analog areas that don't need a lot of channels.

Probably because 4.0 is designed for Windows and not DOS. 4.0 works just fine on a 32 bit machine running Windows 7.
