Remarks

Configuring the Palm Pilot to write data

The configuration of HotSync.EXE is modified when using PalmInstall and PalmUninstall.
One or more DLLs required by WINDEV are added in order to communicate with HotSync.EXE.
If a problem occurs that prevents HotSync.EXE from being used, PalmReset restores the initial configuration of HotSync.EXE (for the configuration of communication DLLs only).

Configuration required for reading PALM data

To read the PALM data, you must:
  1. Have HOTSYNC.EXE (synchronization tool of Palm Pilot) installed on the current computer.
  2. The data must have been synchronized once.
Special case: Using Outlook or another PALM data manager (different from the PalmDeskTop)
If the data coming from your Palm Pilot is not displayed in the PalmDeskTop manager, you will not be able to use the PALM database from a WINDEV application. In this case, use PalmReset to re-initialize your configuration.
Caution: if you are using PalmReset, your PALM data will no longer be accessible from OUTLOOK.
