  • manual installation of Gopher Palm module

    Some users have reported error messages when they tried to install the Gopher Palm setup file. Here is a manual way to install it which bypasses the setup file and eliminates the error message.

    Go to http://www.getgopher.com/palmbeta/
    and do the following:
    1) Download and run the PalmCOMInstaller.exe file
    2) Right-click on gopher.prc and save it to your desktop.
    3) Double-click on the gopher.prc file on your desktop. This will allow you to install it onto your handheld.
    4) Press the hotsync button on your cradle to transfer the gopher.prc onto the handheld
    5) Right-click on GopherPalmConduit.dll and save it to your Gopher folder (C:\Program Files\Ditech\Gopher 2003&#92
    6) Click on Start | Run and then type
    REGSVR32 "C:\Program Files\Ditech\Gopher 2003\GopherPalmConduit.dll"
    and click OK.
    (if you saved the file to a different location then use that location instead)
    6) Try to hotsync again. You should now see the Gopher conduit screen with options for transferring data to and from the handheld.

    Troubleshooting
    If the conduit file has already been registered you will get an error msg. You can unregister the file by going to Start | Run and typing:
    REGSVR32 /u "C:\Program Files\Ditech\Gopher 2003\GopherPalmConduit.dll"
    (assuming that's the location of the conduit that was originally registered)

        Did you type this exact command from Start | Run:

        REGSVR32 "C:\Program Files\Ditech\Gopher 2003\GopherPalmConduit.dll"

        Did you possibly leave out the REGSVR32 before the dll filename?

          I followed your instructions for manual installation of the palm software, but it's not working. I have a gopher icon on the palm main menu. After clicking on that, the program goes to a blank screen that contains a gopher "tab" up-top. I then tried unregistering it then re-registering using the dll file. Same output. Any other suggestions???

            Hi big bip,

            Did you hotsync yet? That will transfer the data from your Gopher desktop to the Palm.

                  When you double-click on the PRC file it should automatically know to associate it with the hotsync manager. Is your Palm hotsync manager installed and does it appear in your system tray? It looks like a red & blue circular arrow.

                      It still sounds like the Gopher Palm conduit still isn't installed. Try right-clicking on your hotsync manager icon (on the system tray) and then click on Custom. Do you see anything listed called "Gopher Palm Module"?

                        I am stuck at this same point. I did everything the manual installation said to in the order it said to do it in. I right-click on my hotsync manager icon (on the system tray) and then click on Custom. There is nothing listed called "Gopher Palm Module". What do i do now?

                          Try this:
                          Go to Start | Run:
                          1) REGSVR32 -u "C:\Program Files\Ditech\Gopher 2003\GopherPalmConduit.dll"
                          hit enter, and post the message that gets displayed
                          2) Then go to Start | Run:
                          REGSVR32 "C:\Program Files\Ditech\Gopher 2003\GopherPalmConduit.dll"
                          hit enter, and post the message that gets displayed

                          Please note that -u is used only in the first command and not the second.

                            I get no message. The hourglass comes up beside my pointer like something is working ,but nothing. I even click on Custom to see if there is listing called "Gopher Palm Module", nothing. I even hotsync my palm, no special window for gopher comes up to sync my information.

                              1) What version of Windows are you running?
                              1a) If you're running XP are you logged in as an administrator?
                              2) What version of Palm hotsync manager are you running? (right-click on the hotsync manager in the system tray and click on About)
                              3) Go to Start | Run:
                              REGSVR32
                              and hit enter. What message do you see?
                              4) What other programs appear in your system tray (down by the clock)?
                              5) What virus/firewall software are you running, if any?
