RandomFacts for Windows Mobile phones requires Microsoft .NETCF 3.5 or later to run. If you have downloaded Windows Mobile version of RandomFacts from other sources than Microsoft Marketplace, you may run into a version check error if only NETCF 2.0 is installed on your device.

NET CF 3.5 and NET CF 2.0 will both play nicely together installed on the same device. We suggest the following steps:

1. Let’s first verify the version of the Compact Framework that is on your device. Open the file explorer and navigate to the Windows folder. Run CGACUTIL.EXE. It shows that only the 2.0 framework is installed (or 1.0 on a Windows Mobile 5 device). You will need to install the latest framework.

2. Download and install Microsoft NETCF 3.5 CAB (to device memory). You may download it to your PC or directly to your phone from our site.

3. Copy this file to the phone’s file system, and then open it using the device’s file explorer to install it.

4. After installing it, run \Windows\CGACUTIL.EXE again. It will report that you have the 3.5 framework installed.

It does chew up memory, but the speed and application availability will be worth it. Download NETCF 3.5 CAB
