Language Assistant on the HP Palmtop

Language Assistant on the HP Palmtop

I have a question concerning your recent article in the HP Palmtop Paper, The HP Palmtop as a Reference Tool (Pg.14, Vol.4, No.2, 1995). Regarding the Language Assistant 5 program, you give instructions on page 15 to install SPANTOOL.EXE as a stand alone program on the Palmtop. As a life-long student of French, I was excited about this, especially since I have French5, otherwise not installed on any other computer. I followed your Application Manager path exactly, replacing SPANTOOL with FRENTOOL .EXE. I keep getting an error message: couldn't load string resources. What does this mean? I did not install the other files of the program for space reasons; do I need other related files? Is it a memory issue? Please help this looks like a good idea.

By the way, I am a great fan of your magazine, this issue is superb as is this particular article, my problem not withstanding. Keep up the great work and thank you. Barry D. Rock CompuServe ID: [70410,1553]

[Unfortunately, you need more then FRENTOOL.EXE to run the program. All the dictionary information is contained in MICROTAC.LEX. My SPANTOOL.EXE is 242K. The Spanish MICROTAC.LEX is 1.6MB. I was able to run the program using the switches I wrote about in the article with just those two files Hal.]
