For our get file dialog, we are using a component named gsgetfile. It is contained in a .dll file called gsgetfile.dll in the main folder of PPL (\Program Files\PPL\gsgetfile.dll). It will be probably be hidden, make sure you check the View All Files in the Windows Mobile options. Delete this file. Now, go to the WM2005\ folder and move or copy the gsgetfile_wm2005.dll file to the main folder of PPL (\Program Files\PPL\). Rename the file to gsgetfile.dll. Restart PPL and this will do the trick.How come PPL doesn't work on my Pocket PC 2000 or�2002 PDA?PPL has been designed for Pocket PC 2000, 2002, Windows Mobile 2003, 2003se and Windows Mobile 5.0. However the default version installed is the WM2003 and WM2005 compatible executable. You will simply need to replace the PPL.EXE file in the \Program Files\PPL\ folder with the file \Program Files\PPL\PPC2000\ppc2000.exe. Copy ppc2000.exe to \Program Files\PPL\ and rename it to PPL.EXE. Delete the old PPL.EXE file first.
