I have both a Mobilepro 900 and 700 and strangely, neither one will run Word anymore. The icon flashes breifly and then nothing.

Here's the info on the 900:

HPC2000
P530 V6.0
Oct 4 2004
3.18.7
3.4


Is it possible to just buy a Windows CE software disc and reload from the beginning? They have the CE 2.1 CD's on Ebay for cheap, but will they work with the proper upgrade?

The only program I use on these handhelds is Word, so this is really bad for me. I thought about getting textmaker, but I can't figure out how to load the demo even.

ANY help greatly appreciated!!! Rolling Eyes

I was exploring the desktop and found that I can't access the System information either. Double click the icon and nothing.

I did hard resets on both machines and the Word program opened once and then never again.

<<sigh>> Crying or Very sad

Hi,
You said after a hard reset that Word worked once. It should work all the time after the hard reset. Any software you install can cause problems.
