We're just testing an update to the Pocket PC that will resolve this
problem. When it's ready, we can either make the update available to you as
a download, or you're welcome to send your PPC back to us for the update to
be done.

Let me know which you'd prefer and we can take it from there once the update
is ready.

Subject: [PPC] EXE files on USB root not working

I obtained a USB drive from BCAB with the pocket PC installed.
I have noticed that the executable files on the root directory come up with
an error message when I try to run them.
The message indicates that the file is not a valid win32 application this is
the same for each program file in the root.

I can however run the portable app files within the sub folders. Do these
main exe files in the root do anything extra or can I just use shortcuts to
the main portable apps? Or are there alternative copies of these root files

I have tried this on my main computer which runs windows xp with service
pack 3 with  2gb ram.
I have not had access to another computer to try that out.

Best regards
Stephen Heap
