KPB files to a TP

I had to replace a Pinnacle DMS today and when I went to transfer the file to the KP I set the DPS of the target KP but mid stream my PC shut off due to low battery. So I powered up and started again and upon completion I noticed my KP didn't receive the file. I then noticed I neglected to re-enter the DPS and the file went to its default 10001:1:1 device. That was the DPS of the kitchen 15" TP but I didn't get a transfer error so for the F' of it I went down to check out the TP and sure enough it loaded the KPB file and in the upper left corner starting at x,y 0,0 was my keypad screen on a big white screen. I laughed my a$$ off but really, it's not even filtering for proper file extensions.

    Fun. It tracks with what Robert Noble told us when the MIO DMS came out, that it had the same chipset as a modero touch panel.

    Just swapping out a DMS with a touch panel and discovered If you rename the file extension of a .kpb file to .tp4 it will open in TP Design 4 as a 128 x 240 touch panel file with all of its button numbering intact.

    Goes to show how old the TP4/G4 architecture really is and how far it has been stretched for Modero X.
    Bring on G5 :)
