Not using for what I want. (yet, hopefully)

  Ok, it's time for the first post.  8)

  I will try to make this short.  I'm going on my third semester of college, and the past two I was taking my regular notebook to classes, a 14.1" Satellite.  I've been using Microsoft's OneNote, and it is one really good note taking piece of software, but without the tablet ability to write on the screen,  I felt a little cheated on, since I wasn't using the app to its fullest. 
  As a student (meaning short on money), I was trying to hunt for an eBay bargain on a tablet, untill I landed my eyes on the DT 366.  I saw that some of these ran on XPe, so I figured I could simply buy one, load XP, then OneNote, and with the help of a 8gb usb drive or a CF card, I'd be set to go.  I think you guys are getting the picture.
  So this whoooooole week I've been on a hunt for apps for my DT's Windows CE 5.0, and I could get  NOT 1 single app to install or run correctly (.cab, .exe, even renaming those back and forth, changing to read only, you name it, I did it all;  still there's the possibility I missed something in the process). 
  I got a couple installed, but they wouldn't run.  Research showed that the problem could be the framework, or the lack of java.  I am not sure about what framework comes on CE 5.0 (and trust me, I looked), and I didn't see the checkbox to able/disable java on the internet advanced settings, so my guess is that it does not have it.  Since I wasn't sure, I did try to install both of them,  and not even those I could succesfully install, always getting the "not a CE application" error message.
 
  So yeah,  I wanted, or rather, really still do want to use my DT 366 to take it to school and use it fully as a paper notebook replacement.  If I could get CourseProPocket Notes (which I can't find anywhere with a downloadable link), read PDFs, a calendar and a battery meter, I'd be a very happy man right now. =) 
  My classes start monday, so all the help will be highly appreciated. lol

Well its not one note but its a close clone:

http://xournal.sourceforge.net/

I have it on a couple of the linux images I have made here. Anything with e17 as the window manager will have a battery meter too. Not windows however it may rove to be useful for your application.

No luck installing this one either.  :'(  I guess I'll have to go with XPe...

For windows you would need to try Jarnal. Xournal is a linux only as far as I know. The only bad thing about Jarnal is that it relies on Java. On the DT360 the draw action happens fairly quickly on Xournal. Almost usable. On a 366 one can wait for a bit for the line to show up after the stoke is made. I wouldnt want to try it with Java weighing things down too. Worth following through on though.

Has anyone here installed a note taking application/software succesfully on Windows CE?
