Installing Software

PalmOS Software Installation Instructions

To be able to install software to your PalmOS device you will need the following:

  • Palm Hotsync Manager installed, configured and running so that you are able to connect your device to your desktop PC (for further information on how to do this, please see the documentation supplied with your handheld).
  • A program capable of opening and uncompressing Zip files (files with an extension of .zip). Winzip is a simple and easy to use application ideal for this purpose, downloadable from www.winzip.com.

If you can open .zip files, and perform a Hotsync operation, installing software to your PalmOS device takes no time at all.

Next

  • Find the piece of software on www.proporta.com and click “Try”.   You will then be asked whether to “Open”, “Save” or “Cancel”. Click “Save”.
  • Select where on your PC you want to save the file you are about to download and click “close”.
  • Locate the downloaded software, and open the zip file as per your chosen Zip application’s instructions.
  • Double click on the .prc file, this is the PalmOS application that will be installed to your Palm device.
  • You will be prompted to select which device you want to install the software to, if you only have one PalmOS device setup just click ‘Ok’,  otherwise select the correct device and then click ‘Ok’.
  • Decide whether you want to install the application to your handhelds internal memory or expansion card (if applicable). If you wish to install it to the card, click the “Change Destination” button and then change the installation target by clicking the “>>” button. When finished, click “Ok”.
     Click “Done”.
  • Hotsync your handheld and the new software will be installed.
