Error: Fatal Application Error trying to run ArcPad

Solution or Workaround

Product: ArcPad 5.0

Platform: Windows CE


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.


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


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


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