How to download PEPID files over-the-air to your Window Mobile 5 & 6 Pocket PC devices

On your PDA go to www.pepid.com/OTA to download the installation files.

  Send the OTA install URL to your device, via email.

Before Installation: Check memory and device requirements

PEPID for Windows Mobile requires .Net Compact Framework 2.x which is delivered with Windows Mobile OS 6.0. Windows Mobile OS 5.0 users can download .Net Compact Framework 2.x by clicking here.

Make sure you have enough space on the main memory of your PDA to install PEPID. By default, the PEPID installation file saves to My Documents on your device. So, you have adequate space to download the file on the device’s main memory, even if you are ultimately installing content files to a card.

Always install the PEPID Application file to the main memory of your PDA. PEPID consists of two components: an application program and database content. The application portion must always be installed to your device´s main memory.
