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.smartphon.......=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?
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:)
