In most cases getting the best from your device will require installed additional software, which is usually downloadable from the Internet. To install this software you will usually need to double-click on the downloaded file on your desktop computer while your handheld device is in the cradle. If your downloaded file however ends in .cab you will need to copy this file to your handheld device (most simply by placing it in your "Synchronised Files" folder) and click on it on your PocketPC using Explorer.
