I've searched for other problems folks have had with GMXT and PPC's...but mine seems unique. Anyway, I have several Garmin XT files on a CF card. One is "Autorun (58.5K)" in a folder called "2577", one is "Garmin Mobile XT (13.0K)" in no folder, and the others are "QuePPC (4.39M)" and "QueSetupPPC (9.77K)" in a folder called "Garmin". However, when the Autorun is used, it says installation is complete, would you like to run GMXT? If you click yes, you get the the starting screen for GMXT, and then it closes...less than a second or two. Basically the same thing happens regardless of which of the files is used. The exception being the setup file, which asks if I would like to re-install. Regardless of picking yes or no the end result is the same every time. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks,
Zach

Looks like the problem was 2003SE. According to Garmin, it should've worked...but either way, I have WM5 now and it works great. I don't like WM5 as much as 2003SE, but it'll do.

Hi,
Garmin was using a standard function with Windows Mobile to autorun an application upon boot/insertion of a card. However the application was having a problem.

I'm glad Garmin was able to help you - they were the only one that could tell you how to resolve this.
