  1. a warner yea synch works flawlessly, in fact even more stable being im now on vista. Awarner i understand myself about time.. I'd like to say thanks for the time and effort you have given me with my antient phone. I will keep searching google... and maybe in time other will reply to this thread i started. thanks again Awarner.:D Confucious... Is it possible for me to flash my c550 to WM6? ive read here that it wasnt possible to flash to smartphone 2005 and that if people tried it would make a brick? so is it possible flashing to 2005 would make a brick? but flashing to wm6 would not?
  2. thanks again awarner for the reply.. do you by any chance have any resources that maybe able to help with this? I love my c550 and really don't want a new phone. nor feel i should have to buy on just because i can't get apps to install on it. hoping there is a workaround?!
  3. ok warner got that to work, thanks so much one last question, i found another piece of software i'd like to put on my phone, but same issue, due to having vista i can't install it. i searched for a .cab but no luck.. is there a work around for us smartphone 2003 users and vista? or a way to get into the .exe files and grab the cab's? Thanks again.
  4. ok i found a tip calculator .cab file http://software.techrepublic.com.com/abstr...px?docid=286764 put the .cab file in install folder installed it. and program shows up in start menu but i get this error this application (tip calculator.exe) requires a newer version of the microsoft . NET Compact Framework than the version installed on this device when i click on Details about the error it says tipcalculator.exe Invaild Program Exception. (which i dont understand cause the link says it will work on windows mobile 2003? any ideas please? think i need to update to smartphone 2005? from what i've read in past those with c550 are stuck with 2003?
  5. hi awarner, the reason i showed the smart ruler screens,is because i knew\know that it has been installed before and worked and now that proggy wouldnt install, so i thought i would post the one that use to work, in hopes once that was fixed\able to install, that the tip calculator would install as well. you also mention the above application is for a pocket pc and not a smartphone? which progrm are you refering to? i just checked the link i put in... http://www.smartphone.net/software_detail....=279&id=321 and the first paragraph says.. summary Summary: Microsoft certified Tip Calculator -Designed for Windows Mobile-based Smartphones. Features automatic rounding. 14 day free trial. and i also checked my screen shots and the first screen shot says... os pocket pc (is this what you are refering to? the OS says smartphone 2003, and it was in my spv installed folder, meaning it has been on my device, and i also have the receipt that i payed for the smart ruler, Also i emailed the smart ruler developer a few days ago and they never mentioned anything about that.. maybe i should email them back and let them know what you found? device center... when i plug my c550 into computer windows explorer pops up showing me the smartphone also i see smartphone folder in my computer...and it shows storage and storage card, if i go in those folder it looks identical to the old active sync 4.5. is this what you mean by device centre application? also when i tried installing smart ruler, or the tip calculator, the files were on my desktop, they are .exe files i don't see a .cab file with them, i just doubled clicked them in vista and it brigs up the installer and then it goes through the isntalling process. (as shown in screenshots pics) also i checked my spv folder, and i dont seem to have any .cab files there? any ideas where i can get a .cab file to test this please? correction... EDIT i just recieved an email form smart ruler with an attachment one was smart ruler.zip one was.cab I installed the .cab and the smart ruler installed and worked fine on my cell. So i guess this brings us to it being a Vista issue? What do i do being i don't have XP anymore? how do i get the tip calculator? or any other program i may want on my spv in the future to work on my phone? out of curiosity.. would a virtual pc with active sync on xp work? or is there a workaround for me so i can get the tip calculator(other smartphone software that i would like on my cell.) to work with my vista machine? thanks.. we're getting somewhere:)
  6. what happened was i tried to install a trial version of a tip calculator.... http://www.smartphone.net/software_detail....teid=279&id=321 i downloaded it with windows vista ultimate, double click'd it, it started to run it then finished installs (everytime when it chose default path it asked me to check device to see if there was anything else that needed to be done, and there was nothing on my cell, like there use to be then it just said finish. (see screenshots )and i tried iinstalling it 3 times with main memory, storage, and storage card, so i went to my spv installed folder (a folder of items that i have installed on my phone or had on my computer) and i tried reinstalling a program called smart ruler, and i tried installing in all 3 locations as well, main memory, storage, and storage card. and the error i get is (smart ruler)(tip calculator) Pocketdevelop.com Smartruler.cab failed to install on your device. so i have no clue what has happened or how to fix it? thanks for replies again. and sorry for posting in wrong spot.
  7. thanks warner for reply!! sorry about posting in wrong spot :D thank you for moving it for me... I used my spv's file manager under start accessories, and then went to Storage/Windows/AppMgr and then clicked on the install folder, and it is empty... any other suggestions please?

  9. i have a spv c550, windows 2003 and im trying to get an app called tip calculator to install no matter where i choose to install it, on my cell it says it failed to install, i tried 3 of my other programs i had bought and tried installing them to test it, and those won't install either? Any ideas how come my spv c550 fails to install these apps now? Any help would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! i have 5 MB of memory left. so that should adequate!? I'm on vista ultimate.. could that be the issue??
  10. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for a reply I just posted this elsewhere few weeks back and no reply. i found this post. For some reason my email notifications arent getting to me. but i will save this page to check back for replies, since you were so kind to reply back to me. i did this today. i FINALLY figured out how to turn off the menu pop sound. i went to reg edit hkey current user, control panel, sounds menu popup, and delete the sound value, and now when i press the menu button it is silent ONLY thing i need to figure out BECAUSE i dont know what these reg keys are, is after making a selection in the menu, a few seconds later there is a pop sound. So im not sure where that would be or what it would be called. It's like a selection sound within a menu, or it is a confirmation that the action chosen within a menu has worked. Example when i hit menu. NO sound now, But when i hit delete text message, it will delete the text message and then i hear a pop or click .wav sound. Anyone know what that might be called in the registry so i can remove it please? that is the only sound i need to get rid of. ALSO AWARNER I just check my profile setting its all in vibrate and no sound i noticed AGAIN when i goto start settings profiles highlight silent then choose menu edit, the phone vibrates, then a few seconds later i here a click sound\or pop sound.. So its everytime after choosing a menu command that it makes this vibrate then click sound. thanks so much for the reply i hope we can figure thi sout, my fellow employes are getting quite perterbd with this sound when in meetings.

  12. hi wondering if someone could guide me where in regedit. do i shut off the annoying click sound when i goto email sms, and choose menu\delete i get this annoying click sounds. even though I'm in vibrate\silent mode.. I'm in regedit sounds but not sure which one would shut off this annoying clicking sound. i woul dlike to keep the vibrate on menu popup if possible. but if there is no way to get rid of the click sound with out getting rid of vibrate on menu popup. then i will remove that if i have to. I need my phone to be fully silent when in meetings. these clicks are distracting for others when i have it in silent mode. Always happens when choosing menus\delete etc.. Just dont know where to shut this off or where to delete the key. Thank You.. Any tips would be appreciated!
