What is HP-12C?
The Finanx 12c is a free software that simulates the HP-12C financial calculator.
Installing Finanx 12c
Download finanx-12c-0.1.4.zip. Make a directory/map with the name "finanx". Open the zip file and copy the files "finanx.jar" and "README.pdf" to this new created directory. You don't need all the other files.
What you do need are manuals, this is not an easy calculator. Download the next manuals;

The used cmd file
Finanx 12c works well with Open JDK in OS/2-eCS. I have a finanx.cmd file with the following contents;
@echo off set BEGINLIBPATH=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin set path=[drive: java]\JAVA160ga5\bin [drive: finanx] cd [drive: finanx]\finanx java -Duser.home=[drive: finanx]\finanx -jar finanx.jar 2>finanx-bugs.txtI use 2 separate folders (directories), one for Java and one for finanx with the files created by this program. The references used in the cmd file;
should be replaced with real drive letters. Save the file and name it "finanx.cmd" or use the install file from the distribution. This file is copied to the "finanx" folder (directory). Furthermore, different paths?, adjust according to your needs. Create a new program object. Specify the path and file name: "[drive: finanx]\finanx\finanx.cmd". In the tabpage Session check the boxes "OS/2 window", "Running as an icon" and "Close Window to end program". In the tabpage General you can enter the name "HP-12C".
Parameters / options explained
In the file you can find the above command files (all drive letters are on set to C:) and an OS/2 finanx icon: finanx-eCS.zip.
