Question... I have an iPAQ 3955 running Compaq's Wireless Pack. At present, the Wireless Pack is NOT compatible with PPC2003. I do have PPC2003 and would like to benefit from the new Media Player 9. Does anyone know if Media Player 9 will install under PPC2002 and will it work? I supposed I could try it, but I'd rather not "hose" my existing media player if it fails. Any input?

    According to the info at http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/software/pocket/9Series.aspx Windows Media Player 9 Series for Pocket PC is only available on Pocket PC devices running Windows Mobile Software 2003.

      I am aware of that. I have purchased PPC 2003 only to find out that my wireless pack is not supported. So I was wondering if one could extract WMP9 from a 2003 system and copy it to a 2002 system. Question was whether it would work, or whether there were specific hooks to the PPC2003 system that WMP9 used.
