Re: Can't remove programs

When you try to remove certain programs on the PDA the following message may appear and in some cases the program will remain no matter how many times you try to remove it: Due to the nature of the PDA and the fact that the operating system is resident in memory at all times, some .DLL files cannot be stopped and removed. For example, the program below uses a .DLL file to run a program on the Start screen and is therefore always running. The only way around this is to rename the file via Active Sync. In Active Sync on the computer, click on Explore. You may have to wait a short while until Mobile Device is displayed, then follow the program file to where the uninstall file is located, i.e. \Program Files\OmegaOne\BattPack\BatBar.dll. If you try and delete the .DLL file the following message will appear because the file is in use at the time: Select BattBar.dll file and rename this, making sure the file format has the .*** suffix and is different from any other valid format, for example, do not choose .jpeg / .mpeg. In this case we have renamed the file Aaa.aaa. Once the file is renamed and saved, remove the PDA and soft reset. The program linked to the .DLL will no longer be present on the PDA. You can now re-dock the PDA, synchronise and go back to Remove Programs and successfully delete the file.

The are no drivers all you need is the activesync program from Microsoft. Activesync is the program that comes with all windows mobile devices for transferring data between your PC and mobile device.

Windows CE Program's


On the new Toshiba e310, e570 and e740 Pocket PCs, Microsoft's new operation system Pocket PC 2002 is installed. The question whether Windows CE programs run under Pocket PC 2002 has no definite answer. Most Windows CE Program will run under Pocket PC 2002. Pocket PC 2002 is an improved version of Windows CE, or rather, the next generation of Microsoft PDA operating systems. Some parts of the internal architecture of the operating system, like the e-Mail system, are of a complete new design and in fact, quite different. So if you run older Windows CE programs using "old and possibly, changed parts of Window CE system", it is quite possible that the Windows CE program will not run or will not operate correctly. Tip: To avoid problems or data loss, we suggest using Pocket PC 2002 programs only. Please note: Pocket PC 2002 is only available for Intel "Strong ARM" processors. This is different to Windows CE, where several CPU's types were supported. Only Windows CE Programs for Intel Strong ARM" processors may run an Pocket PC 2002.

Please follow these steps below to correct this problem: "Tap" on start and choose the ActiveSync program Then "tap" on "Tools" and choose "Options" in the ActiveSync Program Check under "Enable synchronization when cradled using" to see if the setting is on "USB" If it is set on "Bluetooth", please change it to "USB". Now you can close the application window Important: Please remove the Pocket PC from the cradle and then return it to the cradle. This activates the new setting Important to note: This above described issue occurs if you "tap" accidently on the Bluetooth Icon in the Program Group or activate Bluetooth of any other reason, the ActiveSync Option will be set to "Bluetooth" instead of "USB". This setting will cause the "error 608" if you put in the Pocket PC e740 in the Cradle and start to synchronize over USB.
