I reported the same problem, and Barry told me that it is probably due to it 
being put together on a 64-bit system.
This is not acceptable, and if it is not fixed, I'll ask for a refund.

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 available?

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
