    I have also problems unpacking that zip (InteropTools_Beta1.9_pre8_1.9.370.0.zip). Could you send InteropToolsApp_1.9.370.0_arm.appxbundle file to me also? I would appreciate it a lot.

    You should probably try another program to unzip it. Older ones (like the ones you mentioned) don't support some compression modes.
    Try 7zip Download

    Alternatively, you can do it on your phone (you may need to download an app for compressed files, like 8zip in the windows store)

    The problem they have probably has to do with one of the files in that .zip package. As is, the needed file "InteropToolsApp_1.9.370.0_arm.appxbundle" is also a packed file that can be opened with some zip unpackers... Maybe the unpackers that they are using gets "confused" by that .appxbundle suffix.

    Update: thanks to Kefkef's great help, I got Interop Tools etc installed and successfully edited the registry. However, try as I might (with two different radio apps) they both still refuse to start the radio. Either I get "FM Radio not available" (on Radio FM Phone) or "Sorry, this device doesn't support Fm Radio" (on fmRadio). Anyone else get this?
    I'm trying to figure out how to take a screenshot of my registry editor to show what I'm doing.

    Okay, got it figured out. These are all the screens I see. At the end of the last one, I click "Write Data" and then powercycle the phone. I connect my headset but still can't get it to work.

    I did it yesterday and edided path was "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Microsoft/FMRadio/OEM/NotPresent". I used Registry Browser (https://enzocontini.wordpress.com/20...our-lumia-950/). Radio FM Phone works ok in my phone now.

    There should be a value "NotPresent" of type Integer, and value should be 0 for the radio to work.

    Right, registry key added and phone rebooted. Radio FM Phone installed...and...this is what happens.

    Note that I had to manually add the \notpresent\ part as it didn't exist before (if that makes any difference).

    The error you made might be in Value Name that you put in the registry. It should be "NotPresent", and NOT "notpresent" as I wrongly wrote in my email.
    Try to correct this value and see what happens. Sorry for that...

    I've tried that just now but to no avail :( do I need to delete the wrong key (does the capitalisation matter? I thought it didn't).
    12-15-2016 12:47 PM
  13. KefKef's Avatar
    Delete or edit the key, and as I now remember, registry entries are case sensitive.

    Btw, why can't you edit this entry?

    Yay! It finally works! Thanks to KefKef and everyone else for all the help :)

    Anyone know if RDS is supported (my guess is no)?

    I have ATT 950, downloaded 6 different radio apps and none worked saying 'no radio on this device' or something similar. Tried another pair of earbuds, still no go. Reset my phone and downloaded one of the same fm radio apps again, and it worked! And sure enough hit volume button to bring up music controls on top of screen, tapped on the radio station and it opened the stock fm radio app. From there able to pin to start screen.

    I dont get it MS built these phones, and they say no fm tuner, they built it! Just like the hours with ATT advanced tech support who finally 100% guaranteed, beyond a shadow of doubt, that no 950 was compatible with their visual voicemail. I'm glad neither of these companies are building aircraft.
    By the way, I couldn't get this to work - could anyone else?

    Okay cool. Next question (this might be for a different thread) - does the "transfer my stuff" app transfer everything? ie, text messages, photos, contacts, Whatsapp/Viber messages, or just contacts? I tried it today (SIM card still in my old Lumia 930) and it transferred my contacts and nothing else. Hell, even my Nokia E5 transferred more to my 930 when I got that! Or does the SIM need to be in the 950 for it to transfer everything else?

    Ask Microsoft, they disabled it on L950.

    AFAIK, FM radio was never a stand alone app, but was a part of a Nokia music app. When MS removed ALL Nokia apps they did not bother to make a new FM radio app...

    It was a separate app. They just removed it.

    It was, as I wrote, a part of another app "Music+Videos app":
    C/P:
    "The next step is to launch the FM Radio app. Unfortunately it is a bit hidden."
    "Open the Music+Videos app, either by tapping its tile on the Start screen, or its entry in the Apps list."
    "Flick to the collection screen and look for radio link. Tap on it."

    I got my Lumia 950 from Vodafone UK a 24 month contract. I had previously had the Lumia 800 & 925 and found the both the FM Radio and Internet radio good to listen too, but Microsoft had shops advertising them with these features and removed them without any notice.

    Microsoft have done nothing at all to fix this, as I don't think had a clue how Nokia had things working. They also still haven't made Vodafone UK create their MyVodafone app for Windows Phones even after 6 years. I really think Microsoft need to get their act together and fix the problems they've caused or refund people for features purchased, that Microsoft removed. Luckily we have some really helpful people in these forums to help us, Thanks

    Does anyone know how to enable or reinstall the default radio app? I have an unlocked 950XL dual-sim with the latest updates in the US. I can play the radio with a third party app but would like to try the built in app due to it's positive reviews in this thread.

    Could be wrong but don't think it is possible, third party is your only option.
