Thank you.

Glenn,

I'm sorry we haven't responded to you more quickly. We've been testing an
update to the PPC that will fix the problems you've been experiencing, and
we've now tested it on Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 8/8.1.

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.

Léonie.

Yes,
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.

Hi,
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
