Using PalmConnect-LX on a PC running Windows95

Using PalmConnect-LX on a PC running Windows95

PalmConnect-LX is a Windows-based connectivity kit that lets you run Windows versions of the Appointment Book, PhoneBook, and NoteTaker on your desktop PC, as well as transfer files between your Palmtop and desktop PC.

The full capabilities of PalmConnect for the HP-LX are only available from Windows 3.1 or Windows for Work Groups. The underlying communications software included with PalmConnect is not fully-compliant with Windows95, but you can run PalmConnect under Windows95 and use many of its features (but not the HotSync feature).

Follow these steps:

  1. 1. Make sure that DOS command DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\SETVER.EXE is in your desktop's CONFIG.SYS file.
  2. 2. Edit your desktops AUTOEXEC.BAT file to launch all three of the LapLink Remote Access drivers (LLRA1, LLRA2, LLRA3) after the Windows Net is started.
  3. 3. Reboot your desktop PC. Launch LapLink on the Palmtop, and connect the Palmtop to the PC. The two computers should connect when the PC is re-booted. Launch PalmConnect.
NOTE: You must reboot your desktop PC to re-establish communications between the computers. Ignore the error message: Unable to load communications drivers.... This message is displayed even though the computers are connected in the background via DOS.

Do not attempt to connect via the Connect or HotSync icon, as this will likely cause the connection to be broken. You will be able to use the File Open menus to open files on the HP Palmtop for editing, and you may use the Windows (Explorer) File Manager to copy files between computers. No synchronization capabilities will be available. Once you have broken the connection between the computers, you may not be able to reconnect until you re-boot the PC.

Due to the limited sales volume and magnitude of engineering effort required to solve the problem, we are not currently planning to release a Windows95-compliant version of PalmConnect.
