Zumobi – First impressions

Windows Mobile Total Access … sounds interesting …

After installing I tried to start Zumobi:

It seems that the "special folder" Program Files was hard-coded… This is a beginners mistake and should not happen😉

Btw, I think it is a bit strange why Microsoft translates such a "system" directory. Often applications don’t care and what happens (see above). So if using Windows CE in German language you may get two directories: "Program Files" and "Programme". Upppsss…

I understand that "My Documents" folder is translated (e.g. "Eigene Dateien") but I think it is strange that this also was done for Program Files. Think about \Windows folder. There is no translation like \Fenster ;-)))

So I de-install this software … Ok, maybe it will be a workaround to copy the files under \Programme\Zumobi\My Zumobi Store to \Program Files\Zumobi\My Zumobi Store … but I do not like that. Maybe the developers of Zumobi will fix this in the future? Btw, \My Zumobi store and not Mein Zumobi ;-)))

It seems that this genius software was never tested on a OS other than English …
