Open Windows Mobile .pwi files on Windows XP, with INK!
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
