    Hi gjoisa,

    Can you explain this a little further?
    A basic4ppc compiled .exe ist not an installation file, it is a real executible so you have to put this file to your device manually (e.g. copy the .exe to your "My Documents" folder on the dektop and sync your pocket pc. After that you will find this app within the "My Documents" folder on the device")

    If you want to create an installation file for your application you can use the "setupup builder" http://www.basic4ppc.com/SetupFiles.html

    On the device you should use File Explorer to navigate to the file and click on it (similar to the Windows).

    If you have used SetupBuilder then you should run your exe file from the desktop.
    It will install your application on the device (and create an icon in the Programs section).

    Maybe you used a library

    Just a guess: Do you use any other b4PPC libraries (dll)? In that case, they must be in the same directory on the device as the .exe.
