    newbie, how to install software

    need a little help with how to install software.

    this is my first pda phone. pretty much got the basics down but need a little help w/ the advanced stuff now.

    also, what up w/ the soft and hard reset. not really sure what either of those means other than if mine hangs up, i pull the battery and it re-boots.

    thanks

    1. What software do you wish to install? Typically it's either a program you run on your Windows PC and it installs via activesync. Alternately it's a .CAB file you copy to your pocket PC and then find it using file exploer on the pocket PC and click on it.
    2. Soft reset - press the reset pin in the lower left of the pocket PC.
    3. Hard reset. Hold down the power button and do the same as #2. (You don't want to do this unless you want to redo everything.)

    What Ehud said...but to be clear, the RESET button is on the bottom of the device if you are holding it perpidicular to the ground...does that make sense ??? The bottom edge??? How would you say that...either way..it's a small hole that says "Reset"

    i'll give that a shot, the opening on my pc first that is.

    mostly i am trying for a game or two, acrobat reader (any help here would be great) and probably this SPB after reading the reviews.

    so should i just put these in a folder in, say 'program files' or install them in the sync folder?


    thanks again,
    flynn

    and the reset stuff makes sense now too.

    Sure... I use "My Documents" for all these things That's also the easiest to clean out since it's the default one that shows up...
