After a bad encounter with an app, I was forced to hard reset. My problem is that any of the apps that I installed to my memory card before, will not "reinstall" now. It just says the message "has been successfully been installed" without it going through the set up process. What can I do about this?

assuming you still have the cab files to reinstall, you can just delete the program files folder on your memory card and reinstall.

however a lot of programs will run fine without being reinstalled, go into the program files/your app folder and try run the executable. if it works, then you dont need to reinstall it. Press and hold the file, choose copy, browse to the phone memory/windows/start menu/programs and press and hold, on teh popup choose paste as shortcut, and it will be back in your start menu.

+1 on samsamuel.

Hard reset only erases your files on the phone's main memory, not the memory card's. That's why, I think, it's always to install apps in the memory card and keep all the cabs there as well or back them up in your pc.
