:o This actually includes a copy of WinPad, that runs in Virtual PC!

Copy the \SETUP\HHWIN folder to a virtual machine running DOS 6.22, and then run the W.bat file:

That's after I clicked the Clock button....

Runs nicely!
Now I wonder... Was there any device available that ran this?
Do we have any now?
I'd love to have one!! I've got an HP 95LX but it won't have the enough power to run it.

This is really cool, but one question comes to mind...

not to look a gift horse in the mouth, but where does KenOath get this stuff?

That's hilariously cool. Just one problem, though; how can I set the mouse speed faster, it's really getting on my nerves?

I might actually see if I can write a couple of programs with the SDK :).

Another quick question: where are the VPC images of WinCE? I've noticed that the area on FrozenPort's site has gone, that had those images on it. Does anyone else have them? - I've just found them :).

(EDIT)PS: WinPad looks there as though it's supposed to be run in that fashion - through a minimal Windows installation, probably on a tablet-(like)-PC. Would that mean that if someone were to play around with the display driver (and turn their monitor on its side), they could make a pucker-looking WinPad setup? Now, That would be cool to do :).
