Hi!

I downloaded acrobat reader from Adobe site. It says

Acrobat Reader for Pocket PC, version 1.0 English MIPS (Casio Cassiopeia) — 8.71MB

While trying to run it on e-125 i get a message:

" filename is not Windows CE application"

What does it mean?

Thanks [/i]

Are you attempting to run the installer on the Casio? Installers like this are to be run on the PC, while the PPC is connected via Activesync. In the case of Acrobat Reader for Pocket PC, as with most applications, you may find and save the relevant CAB file for later re-use on the Casio, to install again after a hard reset for instance. You may also choose to install to a card, either during the Activesync installation or by using CabInstl or another alternate install method.

Thanks, it helped.
This is SO not strait forward , but I'll manage. Great link also.
I'am new to this pocket PC stuff so after something is done more questions arised. I got my PPC from a friend without any documentation.
Try to figure out what are those small PC and if I'll decide I need one, I'll buy new one (after plaing with mine for 2 days already understand that it's old), so if you can please post a links for more info regarding the following issue

1.Appropriate Casio-125 Documentation (I understood that there is some CD coming with it).

2. MIPS, CEWindows, Pocket PC ... how to know which sw will fit. For example on Adobe sipe there is

Acrobat Reader for Pocket PC 2002, version 1.0
Acrobat Reader for Pocket PC 2002, version 1.0 English — 8.39 MB

and

Acrobat Reader for Pocket PC, version 1.0
Acrobat Reader for Pocket PC, version 1.0 English MIPS (Casio Cassiopeia) — 8.71MB

one I installed another didn't even run.

3. Forums , Q&A's
4. Preferences , how to understand which model targets which market.
5. Technical issues: How does ActiveSync knows that I want to install new sw, what directory it's looking in, does installer run on PC notifies it, can I remove sw on my PC afterwards.


I hope it's not to much , somehow having problem to find info on net.

Thanks again

Hi,
As a background point, there is no Pocket PC 2002 with a Mips processor. So I suggest installing the original version.

1.Appropriate Casio-125 Documentation (I understood that there is some CD coming with it).

I don't know of any complete source of online Casio E-125 documentation, but the device itself is full of Help files. Whatever program or other window you are viewing, just tap [b]Start | Help{/b] to see if there is a file there. All native programs and most installed programs will have help files. Other than that I'd suggest Google is your friend. Searches for MIPS, Casio E-125, or PPC2000 can all be helpful, especially looking for 'fan sites' or other stuff written by those who use this model.

This Casio site can also be helpful:
http://www.casio.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=support.home
Links there to downloads, manuals, whatever.

2. MIPS, CEWindows, Pocket PC ... how to know which sw will fit.

If a program is compiled for MIPS-based devices, chances are good it will run on the E-125. Anything from Palm-size PC and up to your model (that spans about 3 years) should work. Developers are less and less often providing MIPS compilations, but many still do take the extra effort to do so. Conduits is one such company. Game makers also often do so, in acknowledgement of the Casio's superior gaming potential. Your device does not support ARM nor SH3 versions, so always look for PPC2000/MIPS versions.

3. Forums , Q&A's

Here, of course, and older Brighthand, PocketPCThoughts, PocketPCMag and whatever other forums you can find might all be useful, especially using the search functions within them when you have specific questions.

4. Preferences , how to understand which model targets which market.

Sorry, I do not follow you with this one. Are you considering buying a newer PPC model? Read reviews, if this is the case. And choose based on the specifications as they suit you of course.

5. Technical issues: How does ActiveSync knows that I want to install new sw, what directory it's looking in, does installer run on PC notifies it, can I remove sw on my PC afterwards.

PC-based installers for PPC have calls built in to tell CEManager (part of Activesync) to begin handling an installation, when you open the EXE on the PC. As for what directory it's looking in, could you clarify here? Not sure what you mean. In fact most of this question needs re-wording. The last part is clear enough though. In most cases you may safely remove the installer and any unpacked components from the PC after installing to the PPC. However, there are some cases where for their own silly reasons developers have made this ill-advised. Sprite Backup, for instance, cannot be upgraded nor properly removed from the PPC if you remove the PC components. This can make upgrading a nightmare, as it was for me. Live and learn. Of course, since Sprite no longer offers a MIPS version this is not relevant to you.
