Handheld PC, Professional Edition Service Pack 1
By Chris De Herrera, Copyright 1999, 2000
 Version 1.03  Revised 11/27/2000

[an error occurred while processing this directive]


Microsoft has released Service Pack 1 for the H/PC Pro devices. It resolves problems and adds features with/to Pocket Applications (Access, Word, Excel and PowerPoint) as well as Inbox, Pocket Internet Explorer, Network and Printing, and World Clock.  

If in Start - Settings - Control Panel - System, your H/PC Pro says that you are running version 3.01 of the applications, this patch is in ROM.  Do not install this patch.

I recommend that you read the README.HTM included in the download for specifics of any of the following issues:

  1. Users using Inbox receiving attachments in UUEncode - specific servers. Also supports longer message descriptions and e-mail names.
  2. On device PowerPoint 97 converter.  Adds support to view PowerPoint 2000 slides created using the High Quality converters.
  3. Performance and consistency enhancements to Pocket Internet Explorer
  4. World Clock - Added Canberra, Australia. Corrects the time zone for Brisbane, Australia. Corrects the daylight savings time switching for Australian cities.


I recommend that you install Service Pack 1 if you are using e-mail, live in Australia, use Office 2000 or need any of the other enhancements listed.

Downloadable from:

Sharp Mobilon Pro, Tripad

Hewlett Packard Jornada 680

MainStreet Networks Clio C-1000

IBM z50

Users have reported success in installing the patch from other OEMs on other devices without a problem.

If your OEM is NOT LISTED, please contact them for assistance in obtaining Service Pack 1.
