    No need to change it to the correct format. You have to copy both the smartskey.exe and smartskey.ini files to a directory on your 8125. Then click on the exe file once from the 8125. It copies a shortcut to your startup automatically so it initiates when you reset. If you want to change the functionality, you can edit the .ini file in Notepad. It explains everything in that file. You're probably trying to install it from your PC through ActiveSync. You just have to run it from the 8125 itself. Hope this helps.

    There are a couple ways you can move it to your device. If you are connected via USB, you can copy and paste directly to anywhere on your device by using Explorer and going to "Mobile Device". It treats your 8125 as a mass storage device. Then just run SmartSKey from your device. Or you can use a card reader and put the file on the MiniSD card then put it in the 8125 and use 'File Explorer' on the 8125 to copy and paste to your handheld. Nothing visually will happen when you run smartskey.exe from your device. You can check by clicking it again and if it asks if you want to close the app then it was installed correctly.

    I'm not sure what the latest version of SmartSKey is, but I have 0.52 and there were 3 files in the zip directory (readme.pdf, smartskey.exe, smartskey.ini). The readme file goes into detail on how to install/customize.

    You should really check out the thread on forums where you got the program. It tells you EVERYTHING you need to know to get this working. In fact, when I downloaded it, I believe there was a set of instructions included.

    Are the executable and ini files both in the Progams directory? Did you edit the ini file with a pure text editor (like Notepad)?
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    i created a "smartskey" folder in my "program files" folder (windows/program files/smartskey) and i dropped both the .exe and .ini files into that folder. then used file explorer on my 8125 to click the .exe and thats all you need to do.

    delete all you have done and start fresh. do all the folder creating and copying using the EXPLORE feature of Activesync.
