Frequently Asked Questions about PalDRAW
PalDRAW Screen Shots
Does PalDRAW run on Windows CE devices?
No. PalDRAW is just
designed to work on HP100LX and HP200LX palmtop machines,
running on DOS mode.
You can also run PalDRAW
on your desktop PC, using the Desktop PC Compatibility Kit. Eventually, other palmtops or
handheld devices could run PalDRAW, always if they
support DOS, and provides EGA or VGA screen

as the user manual indicates?

the files to the palmtop directory, with the
directory structure? Most of users which found
problems first time running PalDRAW are those which
forget to copy some file from the desktop PC to
the palmtop. Try to reinstall the package.
