Error: Fatal Application Error trying to run ArcPad

Solution or Workaround

Product: ArcPad 5.0

Platform: Windows CE

Question:

I have installed ArcPad on my Windows CE computer, however when I try to run
ArcPad, I get the following:

Fatal Application Error
Application ArcPad.exe has performed an illegal operation and will be
shut down. If the problem persists, contact the program vendor.
Program: ArcPad.exe
Exception: 0xc00000005
Address: 0006c954

The software, fonts, and sample data seem to have installed correctly.

Cause:

The Windows CE computer has an older, unsupported version of Windows CE
installed.

Answer:

ArcPad 5.0 requires Windows CE 2.11. The error occurs if the Windows CE
computer is using an older version of Windows CE, for example Windows CE
2.00.

Notes:

To upgrade the version of Windows CE you need to purchase a ROM upgrade for the
Windows CE computer.
