Embedded Visual Basic

Hi, I got a great deal on a wireless keyboard on eBay but I’m having a bit of trouble installing the software. When I click on the “Wireless Link” program IE opens up and tells me that the application I launched requires MS embedded visual basic runtime to be installed.

So, I went to MS’s site and downloaded what I assume are the files for the Windows CE 2003 visual basic runtime but the file is a .cab and there are no executable files to run to install it. Do I have to copy and paste the files somewhere? Thanks!

copy the file to your iPAQ and click on it after it is there.

Make sure you do a BACKUP first prior to installing it…just in case you need to revert back!
