Installation Make sure you run this as administrator, you will need the … Continue reading Delphi 7 and Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 32 and 64 bit.
I have been thinking about it some time now, Â what to take as computing device on the road. When I am traveling my faithful Ipaq (4350) serves me well, since 2006. Playing mp3, watching video, it all went well. Accessing internet via wireless if available. And will do so in the future, good in the airplane or train or bus for music and movies.
