    I have a program meant for a Joranada that I am trying to run on a Ipaq.
    Here is what the instructions say to do:
    8.On the Jornada, go to the Home screen, with the program icons on it, by pressing the left button, with the picture of a house on it. Tap and hold the icon for Microsoft Reader (don't lift the stylus when you tap, or the program will execute). On the menu which pops up, tap Assign and reassign that icon position to myprogram.exe (in the Program Filesmyprogram folder).
    9.Go to the second page of the Home screen. Tap and hold the first empty icon position and Assign that position to ebook.exe, the executable file for Microsoft Reader. Tap and and hold the new icon and Rename it from "ebook" to "Reader"
    My problem is that the ipaq wont allow me to tap and hold to allow an icon to be reassigned. Is there another way to do this? Cant I just edit it some how on my desktop PC.
    Thanks for the help!! (in advance ) [​IMG]

    If anybody knows the answer Id be happy to hear it. In the mean time I ordered myself a Jordana.

    Anybody want to buy a cherry mint Ipaq?
