It was never possible to install Insignia's Jeode (which is, unfortunately, not shipped any more as a OEM JVM) into alternative storages. Now that this problem has been mentioned
and I had some time to play with the latest, publicly (at least for 5550 users) available version, the 1.9.3, I'm proud to present my results. (You can find my relocation tutorial for the older, non-iPAQ 5550-specific, 1.7.3 version here
It's just the usual case of wired-in paths in link files (which are, programmatically, not necessary at all – in a forthcoming article of mine that will discuss CAB managers, I'll explain how one should create really flexible WinCE installation packages.) This means everything will work 100% if you just change the executable paths in the link files. It's actually very easy – much easier than the manual relocation of version 1.7.3 (see the previous link on this subject).
1, uninstall Jeode from your 5550 entirely if it's already installed
2, reinstall it; now, to the Storage Card
3, edit \Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Jeode\EVM.lnk
so that it has the following:
255#"\Storage Card\Insignia Solutions JeodeRuntime\evm.exe"
4, edit \Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Jeode\Register Plug-In.lnk so that it has the following:
255#"\Storage Card\Insignia Solutions JeodeRuntime\iepluginvm.exe"
5, you can also edit the other three links too (one in there and two under Examples) if you need; just change \windows
to \Storage Card\Insignia Solutions JeodeRuntime\
and putting the path (as it contains a space) between " marks.
After this, everything will work OK – both the PIE plug-in and standalone apps. I've tested the former with the National Weather Service Radar Image
