    Hi

    I did a search but cant find a reolution to this particular problem.

    After an aborted attemt to isntall CM7 on my touchpad yesterday I deleted all files and started again today.

    I am a noob at this and have got as far as installing the files on my pc but when I install novacom ( which seems to go ok (but no dos window opens as per you tube video) I cant find the novacom.exe file either in program files or using search ( windows 7 0.)

    Can someone kindly advise how I may resolve this and do you need any more info.

    Thanks.

    Paul

    I know its not as functional as cm7 yet, but why don't you give cm9 a try. I found using the ACMEInstaller 2 a lot less painful than I did using the first one for cm7.

    Personally, I've found CM9 at this point (as of alpha 2) to be at least as functional as CM7, and in most cases -more- functional (lots of apps work that previously didn't or would frequently crash).

    Scrap CM7, CM9 is where it's at . Hell, the touchscreen driver fixes alone make it a no-brainer. Just follow the instructions and go from there!

    OK I will have a look.
    Will I not still have to find novacom.exe ?

    You mean 'Novacom' - not 'Vodacom'.. presumably?

    Have you got 'WOSQI' installed?
    If not, download and install to your PC and it should ask you if you also want to install the Novacom Drivers. Say yes. (You may need to plug TP USB into PC to get this happening).
    Novacom.exe should then have been installed to 'Palm, Inc' folder in Prog files on PC.

    And Yeah.. CM9 seems pretty together so far!

    If you install the SDK from hpwebos.com (https://developer.palm.com/content/r..._download.html), it's in c:\Program Files\Palm, Inc.\Novacom as a exe file. (IF you installed the 32-bit SDK in Vista or Win7, substitute "Program Files (x86)" for all references to Program Files in this post.)

    If you're trying to connect to Novaterm to carry out anything other than Android installation, you'll need to go to C:\Program Files\Palm, Inc.\Terminal and run novaterm.bat. You'll see a Java window pop up and open a TTY window inside for you to dig around in. If you can sign onto Novaterm, Novacom is working. If you can't sign into Novaterm, restart your TP first and try it again (sometimes USB File Transfer Mode gets stuck and won't let go). If it still doesn't work, restart Windows and try it again.

    If you're not shy with the DOS prompt, it helps to add C:\Program Files\Palm, Inc.\Terminal and C:\Windows\SysWOW64 to the PATH environment variable. I also copied javaw.exe inside of C:\Windows\SysWOW64 to C:\Windows\System32 (where most programs will assume where it is anyway). With Novacom as part of the PATH, and javaw.exe in it's default location, you can run Novaterm/Novacom anywhere you like. Otherwise, you can explicitly call the program in the command line from a different directory, it just involves LOTS of typing: c:\program files\palm, inc.\novacom\novacom.exe boot mem:// < ACMEInstaller (Assuming you're typing this in the directory that ACMEInstaller is physically at.)

    Ok,
    Thanks for the help, we are getting somewhere but I think I am getting into uncharted teritory for a simple old man like me.

    FYI I really dont feel I want to play with DOS more than I have to.

    Also when I connect WOSQI my touchpad shows as topaz-linux.

    When I install novacom I now get DOS window opening but I get a message service removed before I get a window open which says novacom installed.

    Still no sign of novacom.exe anywhere though.

    I have found a novacom file ( 31 kb application) in Palm inc is that it?

    I wounder if I should just give up or/and pay someone to do this for me?

    Paul

    You found the file - it's in the palm inc directory.

    Just follow the instructions in my installation post - they are meant to be very user-friendly for people who aren't "dos-literate". It should work.

    If for some reason it isnt working, I even have instructions on how to go to the Palm Inc directory from the command line and run the installation process from there. It's really alot more simple than you might think.

    Thanks for everyone's help but I have spent hours reading instructions and trying to follow them and failed completely.
    Think I will call it a day and see if I can find someone to do it for me :-(.
