I'm trying to open a .exe file for a Palm Pilot. The file just contains text.
If I try and open the Palm .exe file on my desktop (using windows XP) i get the following message:

"unable to locate Palm or Desktop Reader Programs: No books installed."

I downloaded a Palm Emulator and installed Palm OS 4.12
i tried to see if i could open the .exe file on there and couldnt figure it out.

Problem 1: I've never used a Palm Pilot before!

Anyone have any suggestions?

I did a google search on how to open a .exe file in Palm OS and couldn't find anything.

Perhaps this might shed some light? I don't have one either, but this looks like it might help
