In ArcPad 10.0 SP2, some users experience a fatal application error immediately on startup.
This behavior does not occur when ArcPad is installed on a Windows Mobile device. On desktop machines, the behavior only occurs when the user's My Documents folder is mapped to a UNC path. For example, storing My Documents at '\\localhost\documents' would cause a crash, but referring to the same location as the 'Z:\' drive enables ArcPad to behave normally.
Map a network drive, for example X:\, to the UNC path where My Documents are stored. Set the target location of My Documents to the new mapped location instead of the UNC path by following the steps below.
Alternatively, rolling back to ArcPad 10.0 SP1 also resolves the issue.
It is necessary to use the new mapped drive as the location of My Documents.
