M$ sure created a big headache with this pwi crapola.
i finally found a complete solution, albeit a somewhat weighty one, to opening .pwi files on my windows xp pc. Your decision to download the emulator and then install a fair size install, will ultimately depend on how bad you want to see them pesky little drawings you made days/months/years ago.
I downloaded and installed the wm v6.5 emulator sdk from here (225mb)
once installed, run the desired emulator from program list (vga for me).
Then i discovered (after more research) i needed to have a folder on xp that was accessible from the wm6 emulator, within which to place the .pwi file to be viewed.
In the emulator go file > configure and at the bottom of the general tab "shared folder", browse for a folder on your xp machine to share. This folder is then accessed via the root directory of the emulated wm6 as folder "storage card" in window mobile file explorer.
Viola! I can now open/edit/save .pwi files as if the were on my xp machine.
Thanks for being a massive time vampire m$. Notes suck.
Enjoy. ( -;þ
