Pocket PC Lock Down Applications

By tonycomerford ·
I have a client software that I run on Dell Axim X30 with pocket pc 2002. The problem I am having is that the staff are playing the ganes and using the other applications. I need a way to lock down all applications except my own software.

1. You could enable the password in the settings menu but if other users need to use the axim this will not do you any good.

2. Use activesync to make a complete backup of the Axim. This should be done in any case. Burning a cd of the backup would be a good idea also. You then can go to settings - system - remove programs and remove all of the time wasting routines and leave only the programs you need. If and when you need the original set up you just use activesync to restore from the saved backup. You may have to keep an eye out for users who might install new programs. Hope this helps.
