Please help...I just purchased a Tungsten E handheld, and I can't load the installation software that came with it! I put in the disk, and the Installation Wizard starts up. When it gets to the dialog box informing me that the InstallShield is loading...Please Wait, NOTHING happens. When I CTL-ALT-DEL, I see "Idriver Not Responding". I have to end this task, then end the InstallShield Wizard task to get out of the load screen. I have tried closing some programs, but nothing is working. The disk loads fine at work. I downloaded the software from the net, and the same problem. Has anyone experienced this, and what did you do? If I can't get this loaded, I may as well take the palm back to the store! Help!

Re: Desktop Software Will Not Load!
The problem that you are encountering right now is a windows problem. "idriver.exe" is related to the installshield application on your computer and installshield is used to install application on your computer, so if idriver is not working, installshield will not work also. I suggest try the windows update. It might fix the problem.

well i had the same problem, and the problem turn to be that the latest software is ****! uninstall that software and install the palm desktop 4.14 that should do it! its sound like old but its the same thing!
They won't. Your SD card has to be installed in your E2 and you have to load the pics (multiples if you want using your media icon on your desktop software. There are more steps which I know by heart. Do you have the desktop software?
If you said you have the software (desktop), your doing it backwards. Run the desktop software by going to my pc and running the disc. The software will then ask you to plug in your E2 so it can register it. It will then synch and your in business. Had E2 for a very long time. Can tell you things that guy can do that would surprize you. Have everything but unit now.
Changing back to Palm Desktop Software from Outlook with Tungsten E
1 Place the Installation CD that came along with your handheld onto your cd-rom. Wait for it to load after which you’ll see a splash screen with different menus.
Note: If the cd does not automatically load, double click on my computer then click on the cd-rom drive icon and finally click on the first icon (looks like a cd) labeled ‘autorun’
