Ricardo from El Salvador just emailed me asking me how I managed to install the Palm Desktop on a Tablet PC. Palm say it’s not supported, but it’s worked fine for me, once I managed to get it installed, which seems to work fine provided you follow these instructions:
- uninstall any earlier version of palm desktop
- restart Windows
- make sure nothing else is running (i.e. don’t start any applications)
- install palm desktop
- when it hangs at ‘removing backup files’, bring up task manager (right click on the task bar) , go to process tab and kill any and all ‘idriver.exe’ instances
- Installation should then continue
IF this doesn’t work first time, give the process above another try, some people report that it doesn’t always work first time, although I have never had to repeat the process myself.
