Hi
I have this program that is used to change parameters on a programable Drag bike ignition.
The company that makes this kit have said that it will not run on a Palm handheld.
So I need to check to see if this windows based program will run on a Pocket PC before I spend
any money on one.
Here is a link to a copy of the software.

The prog is 1301KB big.
I'm hoping that someone might have a Pocket PC that they could test this software in.To see if it will run on a Pocket PC.
Thanks
Richard

If it is not designed specifically for pocket pc, it will not run on pocket pc.
If it does run on Windows desktops, it most definitely will not run on a pocket pc.

Programs must be compatible with Pocket PC, because the code on a Pocket PC is different from the code on a Windows or Mac OS PC. If there's no indication of it being compatible on their product page, then it isn't.
