If you’re not sure what file or application is causing the problem, you’ll need to perform a hard reset. Before you do this, be sure to perform a HotSync so your data is properly backed up (the hard reset will erase all data on the PDA). To perform a hard reset, press the power button while performing a soft reset. Replace the power button when you see the Palm/PalmOne logo and press the Up button when prompted.

Next, find your Backup folder on the desktop. You’ll usually find this folder located within your user folder, which is usually located in either C:\Program Files\Palm, C:\Program Files\palmOne, or C:\Program Files\Handspring. Your personal folder will resemble the user name you selected for your device. If you used your first and last name, for instance, your user folder will likely be the first six letters of your first name followed by the first letter of your last name. Rename the Backup file to Backup.old and HotSync your Palm to restore personal data. Because you renamed your Backup folder, no applications or additional files will be restored at this point. Instead, an empty new Backup folder will appear. Move applications from your Backup.old folder into the new Backup folder one at a time and HotSync your Palm. After each HotSync, try to reproduce the problem. If the problem doesn’t reappear, move on to the next file. Delete any files that cause a problem after they are moved onto your PDA.

Enjoy! Pls.rate me if it's done. Thanks.

Kindly regards,

What is the purpose of java

high-level programming language developed by Sun Microsystems. Java was originally called OAK, and was designed for handheld devices and set-top boxes. Oak was unsuccessful so in 1995 Sun changed the name to Java and modified the language to take advantage of the burgeoning World Wide Web. Java is an object-oriented language similar to C++, but simplified to eliminate language features that cause common programming errors. Java source code files (files with a .java extension) are compiled into a format called bytecode (files with a .class extension), which can then be executed by a Java interpreter. Compiled Java code can run on most computers because Java interpreters and runtime environments, known as Java Virtual Machines (VMs), exist for most operating systems, including UNIX, the Macintosh OS, and Windows. Bytecode can also be converted directly into machine language instructions by a just-in-time compiler (JIT). Java is a general purpose programming language with a number of features that make the language well suited for use on the World Wide Web. Small Java applications are called Java applets and can be downloaded from a Web server and run on your computer by a Java-compatible Web browser, such as Netscape Navigator or Microsoft Internet Explorer.

Step one is make sure that the application is compatible with your operating system and that you have the latest patches, updates. Once done try again if you had to download anything from the vendor's site. While at the vendor's site check FAQ's and if they have support follow the instructions. Step 2....assuming it failed again is to run scandisk in thorough mode (assume you have windows of some version or other) to fix any cross linked files. Step 3 is to download (free) Ccleaner and run both the windows and application cleanup capabilities and then run the registry cleaner....(don't worry the latter is fail safe but create a restore point just in case). Step 4....given you have tried to reinstall your application again and it failed is either to get a new copy of the cd or restore, repair, or reinstall your operating system and perhaps both. I would try the former first; the latter can take a lot of time to reload all yoru applications if you have to
"start from scratch." Hope this helps....Tango
