I originally posted this in the Win XP - General forum where I suspect the
real problem is but they are persistent that it should come to the Pocket PC
forum so here is my problem.


I am trying to install Microsoft Entertainment Pack 2.0 for Windows CE on my
HP iPaq 8555. When I click on setup.exe on my PC, I get an hourglass for
10-15 seconds but nothing else ever happens. This appears to start
wowexec.exe which ia a 16 bit
installer for Win XP. Repeat clicks start another instance of setup in the
processes but none ever go to completion. Any suggestions?

Jackie,

Have you tried to run the setup.exe in Windows Compatability Mode? If not,
try doing that see if it will install.

Regards,

IIRC, the Entertainment Pack 2 is for older HPCs (and possibly PsPCs)
and isn't compatible with the iPAQ of the OP.

HTH,
