Installing the Palm OS Emulator (POSE) page 5 of 7

The Palm OS Emulator (POSE) application software emulates different models of PDAs. An emulator allows you to develop, test, and debug PDA applications before downloading them to your PDA. POSE is free and available at the Palm OS Emulator Web site (see Resources).

A binary version of this is only available for Windows. Although POSE also is available to run under UNIX, you must download the source files from the Palm OS Web site and compile them yourself for your specific UNIX platform.

To download and install POSE under Windows:

  1. Download the latest POSE zip file from Palm OS Web site.

  2. Extract the contents of the zip file into its own directory.

  3. The emulator.exe file now exists in the POSE installation directory. When launched, emulator.exe runs the Palm OS Emulator.
