The `image' shouldn't execute on the desktop (the `not a valid..' message is
correct). If you have the proper file it is a valid CE application so if you
are having trouble I see the following possibilities:
(1) You started with the wrong `CORExxx';
(2) Your copy operation corrupted the image;
(3) you are attempting to execute it in some `invalid' way.
I have an iPAQ and encountered no difficulty whatsoever in the process, so we
just have to figure out where you went wrong. And your current description is
somewhat too vague to make that easy. (`When I download and unzip the files...'
What files? Downloaded where to the PC or to the iPAQ? etc.)
I'd recommend you start over and document each step carefully, and in some detail
(i.e. `I download and unzip XXXX.ZIP on the PC' I use xxxx to copy it to ....')
It will probably work this time and you won't need to write back.
If it doesn't, then write back to the List with the very specific statement of what
you did and we'll try to spot what you did wrong.
