Re: Windows CE Tracking



Hi Dennis,

Go to the web site I suggested and download an evaluation copy of XT-CE. It
is loaded on your machine from the host PC. There is an extensive
instruction manual with the software. You will need a licensed copy of DOS
to complete the installation. When loaded, you double click the XT-CE icon
and get the DOS prompt. You can then run some DOS programs (Quik Track,
Instant Track) but no programs that require a numeric co-processor. It
sounds like it would be worth a wait to try Chris Jackson's program. His
program would probably run faster in native Win CE mode.
