    Hello All

    I just recently bought a HP Palmtop 660LX and the os is
    Windows CE 2.0.

    I would like to install software to it. Can Pocket PC software be installed and run on this PDA or Palmtop.

    Thanks

    Mickeyy

    The compatibility story for Pocket PC devices is very confusing. First-generation Pocket PC devices ran on different processor architectures, so the same programs could not run on all Pocket PCs.

    • First generation Pocket PC devices from HP and Casio became instantly obsolete when Microsoft announced Strong ARM-only support for future products.

    • In order to run existing applications on new Pocket PC hardware, customers were forced to replace all applications based on architectures other than ARM.

    • Any applications written for non-ARM Pocket PC systems were instantly made obsolete by Pocket PC 2002.
