Palm Desktop and HotSync Manager

The 1.0 version is the earliest version of the Palm desktop.
It's simple and easy to use, and has all the features of my Palm m105 (some of its features are still missing in the Linux equivalents).

What works

All the software: desktop, hotsync, installer of new software on the Palm.

What does not

The installer of the software itself. It complains that Wine is not Windows 3.1, and refuses to proceed. Therefore, I took an installed version, took 3 dlls from the Windows directory, and put them in the application's directory. The pilot.ini file stays in the windows directory. For all executables, Windows 3.1 operation needs to be set up.


What was not tested

Expense (I never figured out how to use that under Windows 3.1).
