Unable to remove programme from Pocket PC

  Dannyb 20:10 25 Jan 2003

I have downloaded an updated version of a programme I already have and it won't install on my PPC. When I try a message reads, "\ProgrammeFiles\OmegaOne\BattPack\BattBar.dll is in use or in ROM close application using the file". Can't work out how to close it, so, tried to delete it, however, when I try to delete the file I get a message "Cannot delete BattPack access is denied. Make sure the disc is not full or write protected and the file is not currently in use" Where do I go from here??

you dont say what P D A you have

I have the COMPAQ iPAQ 3900. When I get lock outs and lock ups like that I resort to a soft reset.

Do this by inserting the pointer in the small hole at the bottom right hand corner of the machine for a second or so. Just just prod it in fact. The message comes up "Synchronising your installed programs" ( Too long and it clears your machine of everything) But leaves out any new recently installed stuff.

This is all asuming you have the iPaq machine of course.

hope it's been of some help anyway.

Are you trying to delete the program directly in file explorer or have you gone through start/settings/system/remove programs ?

Tried both Pauper.

(sorry to ask the obvious but..)from the today screen have you shut down all running programs before trying to uninstall? (start/settings/system/memory/running programs/stop all).

Dannyb, I have downloaded and installed the trial version of this software on an E310 in order that I can try to remove it, this was achieved from the remove programs screen under 'system', a couple of the programs journal and battpack required that the device be soft-reset (a pint for imindoors!) and the program immediately removed without activating any other programs once the device re-started. Battoack is now completely removed.
