There are very few browsers for Windows CE. What browser are you trying to load on the windows ce device, and what device is it that you have?

Please just reply to my answer here and I can help you for sure.

    Ok well there is only Internet Explorer 6 for Windows CE, which is what you already have if you are running Windows CE 5. There is no newer version of the browser for that device, they stopped supporting it a long while ago. The error you are getting is from a particular webpage that will not display on your device, and unfortunately never will unless it has a "mobile" version of the website. Many websites are just not compatible with Windows CE devices.

    Unfortunately you have the only real option for a browser, the error you see is assuming you are on a regular computer, it doesn't realize it is a CE device, so it tells you that you need to upgrade to something newer, but it just is not possible.

    Sorry about that, I wish there was a newer browser for your device but there is not.

    Thanks so much, please reply to my answer here with any questions.

How to update window ce, to newer window version?

Windows CE built into the motherboard, and is not meant to be upgraded or installed over. (simliar to older cellphones) unless there is an available "firmware update" for that model.

The advantage to this is an operating system that never corrupts- you can simply to a full reset and have it working as new out of the box (despite losing any stored files). Make sure to back up all your files onto an SD card.

I would recommend you go to this site however, to find an extensive list of Win CE compatible programs.

Opera Mini browser is also an EXCELLENT CE compatible browser that reduces data consumption by up to 90% and helps make CE feel much more functional.

"how to fix unsupported web browser"

Use a browser that allows you to get on the internet and download and install the latest versions of the browsers you use. If you can't get on the internet, buy a USB memory stick and go to your local library to borrow one of their computers. Download the latest versions of the browsers onto the USB stick and install the updated browsers into your computer from the USB drive.
If you're using Windows make sure you go to Windows update and install the latest updates to your operating system. Same goes for Apple and other OS's.

We cannot access many web sites from this netbook. I've tried to download a different flash drive but that didn't help.

The browser supplied with CE is an old version and is not supported by many sites. You have probably experienced "This site does not support your version of IE, You must down load a more recent version in order to use the full services of our site." The problem is that CE doesn't have many versions and some sites do not support CE at all. I have a TIP at:

That tells how to re-flash your operating system, but the newer version is not much better. You are pretty much stuck with the software you have unless the manufacturer decides to offer a better upgrade.

Is there anything i can do to update my dell axim x51v

In the settings area on the Dell, there is a link to check for updates. This is the first step to determine if your phone has an update.
The Pocket PC follow the Window CE operating system.
Go to Start/Settings/System/About: This will tell you the version of the software you are running.
The go to the Microsoft web site type in Windows CE in the search block and see if it is the latest version. If it is, no update. If it is not then you might want to try it.

good luck and don't forget to vote!!!
