  • Upgrading:

To upgrade from version 1.0 or 1.1 to version 1.2, download: pocket millionaire.vb (145 Kb)

This upgrade is intended for those have version 1.0 or 1.1 of the game already installed on their device. If you haven't, see above.

To upgrade your copy, ensure that the game is not running. Then, using the Explore option in ActiveSync, copy across pocket millionaire.vb from your computer to the folder on your device where the game is installed. You should choose "Yes" when asked if you want to replace the existing file.

By default, this folder is \Program Files\Pocket Millionaire (remember that Explore starts by default in \My Documents, so you will need to first click on My Pocket PC).

The major improvement in version 1.2 is that the limit on the number of questions the game can read (previously 200) has been removed. Also, there are a number of bug fixes and small improvements.


  • Please note that due to a bug in the Application Install Wizard in Microsoft's eMbedded Visual Basic application, removing the game using the "Remove Programs" utility will also remove the Visual Basic runtimes included with the game. This may affect any other applications created using eVB that you have on your device.

    If this problem affects you, you can replace the runtime files that are removed by copying the contents of the appropriate file into your device's \Windows folder: (for ARM devices -- 369 Kb) (for MIPS devices -- 522 Kb) (for SH3 devices -- 409 Kb)


  • Themes:

The game images and sounds can be customised as you wish. If you create a theme that you think deserves a wider audience, please zip it up and send it to me! I'll make it available to download, and you will of course be credited.
