PW5 Samsung SGH-I200

I have a SAMSUNG SHG-i200 with Windows Mobile 6.1. When I try to install the .CAB file for PathAway 5 Standard meant for smartphones, or try to install the general all platforms PC based installer, I get an error (translated to English) that is: "The installation of PathAway failed. The installation file is not intended for this device". What should I do to install properly on my non-touch screen 6.1 "Standard" device?

I made the whole procedure with installing
"" without success.

Windows Mobile 6.1 Standard
CE BS 5.2.19214 (Build 19214.1.0.4)
Prozessor: ARM926EJ-S STn8810 Nomadik

There is an article that relates to the error message you see:

The error's English translation is approximately:

"Unsupported device type
AppName provider does not support the connected device type. The Application Manager will make the application available for installation when a supported device is connected."

However, this article does not seem to make sense in your situation because your Samsung SGH-i200 comes with Windows Mobile 6.1, not the older Windows Mobile 2003 mentioned in the article.

So the resolution is still unclear to me. I am not sure if a hard reset of the device is relevant in this case; probably not. If the Windows side .EXE install did not work, and the Smartphone WM 5+ .CAB file did not work, I am not aware of what other installer can be attempted.

If you are using the .CAB file, you would need to copy the CAB file to the device, then run the CAB on the device. (not your PC).
You should be using the CAB file:
CAB File Full Install for Windows Mobile 5+ for Smartphone

Well, I have done it your recommended way. I know that I have to run the .cab-file on my smart phone.
Meanwhile I have tried to install the professional version, but with the same bad luck.

Are there restrictions for the available space on both the program and the data memory?

After install you should have at least approxiately 2 mb of free memory.
This is puzzling as to why PathAway won't install the .cab

Perhaps there is something different with your device. We are investigating.

Dear Scott, is there there something new? I'll start my travel today and have to use another device :(

Thanks, Steffen.

Hi Steffen,

I have the same device (I200).
Since the minor update 5.20.xx Pathaway didn't work anymore, I hadn't posted it here.
The last working version on my Samsung is the 5.00.33 (but professional).

Greetings from Germany

Hi, Sekundenherz,

thanks for your link, I could read it, I'm from Germany too :roll:

I found a solution for my problem: Today I have given my I200 back to the electronic market. So I will continue to use my LOOX N560 for PatAway, there it is working without problems.

Thanks to all of you.

Best regards from Panketal/Germany
