However, the problem I am running into is this: Since the 1910 sat so long, it lost all power and now I have to go through the setup process (the dumb quick tutorial, the screen alignment, ect). Is there anyway to by pass this at all so I can just use the remote view and my desktop to control the PPC? Kind of a random situation, but I would like to test my software (see sig line) on a slower machine. Please let me know if this is possible! Thanks!
1, connect the PDA to the PC when the initial Welcome screen is shown. Fortunately, ActiveSync will work even then.
2, kill the process named "welcome.exe" and then, "showbmp.exe" (I think the 1910, as the other iPAQ's, also displays the splash screen after running welcome.exe) with a suitable tool (for example, the remote process viewer from evc3 or Pocket Controller.
