HP 360LX and 340LX Palmtop PCs - How to Create Floppy Disks from Windows CE Services

QUESTION: How do I create floppy disks from Windows CE Services?
ANSWER: If you do not have a CD-ROM drive on the PC where you want to install Windows CE Services, then locate another computer with a CD-ROM drive and a 3.5-inch, 1.44 MB floppy drive. Copy the CD-ROM files to the floppy disks.
DETAILS: If you do not have a CD-ROM drive on the PC where you want to install Windows CE Services, then locate another computer with a CD-ROM drive and a 3.5-inch, 1.44 MB floppy drive. Copy the CD-ROM files to the floppy disks. Use the following steps to create disks for floppy installation.
  1. Obtain 11 blank, formatted 3.5 inch 1.44MB floppy disks.
  2. On the CD-ROM, open the Floppy directory. The Floppy directory contains several component folders, each containing one or more Disk folders. You will create one floppy for each disk folder. Label each floppy with the name of the component and the disk number. For example, you will label three floppies with "Windows CE Services Disk 1" to Disk 3.
  3. On the CD-ROM, open the first component directory. For example, open Windows CE Services.
  4. Copy all of the files inside each of the Disk directories (for example, Disk1, Disk2, Disk3) to the corresponding floppy disks you made in step 2. NOTE: Do not copy the Disk1, Disk2 and Disk3 folders to the floppy disks; copy the files inside these folders to the disks.
  5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for each component directory.
     note:
    IMPORTANT: DO NOT PROCEED WITH INSTALLATION OF ANY OF THESE COMPONENTS UNTIL YOU HAVE READ THE NEXT SECTION.
Floppy Disk Installation
You must perform required updates and install Microsoft Windows CE Services before you can transfer files and synchronize data between your desktop computer and mobile device. Follow these steps to complete the installation process. During installation, you will be asked to restart your computer. Before you begin, save your work and quit all programs.
 note:
IMPORTANT: Do not start installation until you have read the entire installation instructions. Follow the procedures in the order shown here. Installing programs out of order may cause problems.
Windows 95
  1. If you have H/PC Explorer 1.x, remove it.
  2. Update the Microsoft Exchange client, if required.
  3. If you do not have Microsoft Outlook installed, install Microsoft Schedule+ 7.0a.
  4. Install Windows CE Services (known as H/PC Explorer in version 1.x).
  5. Install Microsoft Windows 95 Dial-Up Networking 1.2 Upgrade.
This step is optional. If you installed Windows 95 from a CD-ROM, you will need the Windows 95 CD-ROM to complete this upgrade.
Windows NT
  1. If you have H/PC Explorer 1.x, remove it.
  2. If you do not have Microsoft Outlook installed, install Microsoft Schedule+ 7.0a.
  3. Install Windows CE Services (known as H/PC Explorer in version 1.x).
  4. After you install Windows CE Services, you may see a message stating that you may not be able to connect until you reinstall the Windows NT Service Pack. Before you reinstall the service pack, try connecting your device to your desktop computer. If you cannot connect, install the service pack.
Remove H/PC Explorer 1.x
If you are upgrading from version 1.x, you need to remove H/PC Explorer before you install Windows CE Services 2.0.
  1. Choose the Start button, point to Settings, and then choose Control Panel.
  2. Double-click Add/Remove Programs.
  3. Select H/PC Explorer 1.x from the list, and then choose Add/Remove.
  4. Follow the directions on your screen.
Update Microsoft Exchange
If you are using the version of Microsoft Exchange that came with Windows 95, update Exchange (the following procedure describes how to determine this).
 note:
IMPORTANT: Do not install the update unless you already have Exchange installed. Also, do not install the update if you have already upgraded to a newer version of Exchange.
To determine your version of Microsoft Exchange
  1. On your desktop computer, start Exchange.
  2. On the Help menu, choose About Microsoft Exchange. In the dialog box, check the version on the first line.
    • If the version is 4.0.410.59, you must install the update. Go to the next procedure.
    • If the version is greater than 4.0.410.59, do not install the update. Go to "Installing Microsoft Schedule+ 7.0a."
To install the Microsoft Exchange Update
 warning:
The U.S. English version of the Microsoft Exchange Update may cause serious problems if installed on non-U.S. English versions of Windows 95. Installation on any version of Windows 95 except for the U.S. English version is not supported.
  1. Insert the disk labeled "Microsoft Exchange Update Disk 1" into drive A.
  2. On the Start menu, choose Run.
  3. Type a:\setup, and then choose OK.
