Here you can download the FTDX-5000 Menu and Memory Edit program and the program description document. The program is in Zip format and should run on both 32 and 64 bit versions of Windows. It was tested only on the 64 bit version of Windows 10. The program description document is in PDF format. Please report any problems to: floydsense at yahoo dot com.
If you have problems with error messages when installing the program, they will be coming from your anti-virus or malware software. Either disable them until the program is installed, or tell the security program to allow the installation. Malwarebytes seems to be a particular problem and you can get around it by examining the error messages and adding the mentioned files/directories to the Malwarebytes "ALLOW" list.
NOTE: This program was written for and tested with the following firmware levels installed on the FTDX-5000:
Main firmware: 0131
Results with other firmware levels are unpredictable and unknown.
The current version number of the program is: 188.8.131.52, published on 2/18/20
Most significant updates from the previous version:
- When importing a backup of the Menu items, many items were not being updated properly. That problem was corrected.
- Menu backups created with previous versions of the program can't be imported into this version. Memory backups are not affected. Users should create a new backup of their Menu. If you view the new backup file, the format has changed a bit - each item entry now shows the text displayed on the Menu form followed by a comma and the CAT parameter associated with that text.
