We've been working on an update to the PPC that will fix the problems you've
been experiencing. I can make the update available to you as a download, or
you're welcome to send your PPC back to be updated. 

If you let me know which option you'd prefer, I can either send you the
download link and instructions, or the address to send your PPC to.

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
