I've been lurking on this list for a while ...

First of all, many thanks to the Lua developers for this language, and
for providing it at no charge!

Thank you, Lua on the PocketPC would be useful for me. Unfortunately,
I didn't manage to install your LuaX distribution properly. :-(
I have a HP iPAQ 1940, which has an ARM processor, and runs the
operating system MS PocketPC Version 4.20.1081.

I copied your CAB file to the PocketPC, "double clicked" at it, and it
seemed to install itself. Then under "Start" > "Programs", there were 3
new generic looking icons: LuaX (gfx demo), LuaX (SDL demo) and LuaX for
PocketPC. When I "click" at any of these icons, I get the following
message (translated by me from German):
"'luax' (or one of its components) couldn't be found. Please make sure,
that path and file name are correct, and that all required libraries are

In the LuaX directory there is a RTF file which I tried to read, but
Pocket Word couldn't open it.

Then I tried to uninstall the program (I don't know the original English
terms, so I hope the following is understandable). Under "Start" >
"Settings" > "System" > "Remove Programs" it reads
     :LuaX for PocketPC

I selected this entry and "clicked" at the "Remove" button, but nothing
happened. :-(

What can I do?
