Depending how you've configured your connection to your target device you may need to manually copy these files.  They are located in the Entrek ProcMan installation on your computer.  Typically this will be C:\Program Files (x86)\Entrek\ProcMan\2.0\Target\WINCEXXX\CPUDIR. If you used Specify Install Directory... then be certain to copy the files to the directory you specified.  Otherwise copy them to the \Windows directory on the target device.


XXX: designates the version of your Windows CE operating system.  Examples are 211, 300, 400, 500, 600, and 700.
CPUDIR: designates the CPU of your target device.  The CPU directories for each Windows CE version correspond to the supported CPUs for that version of Windows CE.  Examples are ARM, ARMV4I, MIPS, MIPSIV, PPC, SH3, SH4, and X86.


These files will be uninstalled and deleted by Entrek ProcMan when you disconnect if the Uninstall on Disconnect menu option is checked.


Additional files may be copied and installed depending on the connection method you choose for connecting to the target device.  These files are not uninstalled and deleted even if the Uninstall on Disconnect menu option is checked.
