Windows Mobile DST problem

We have a Dell Axim with Microsoft Pocket PC Version 4.20.1081 (Build 13100). Since the DST change the OS has the correct time, but syncing the Outlook calendar is causing a problem. The Outlook calendar on the PC is correct. We have updated both XP and Outlook, so the desktop is 100% correct. When we sync the Axim the items in the calendar from March 11th (?) to April 1st is an hour off. Again the calendar on the PC is correct, it's just wrong on the Axim. I tried downloading and installing the fix for Windows Mobile 2003 (not sure if that is the version I have), but when I click on the DST07_WM2003.cab file I get the following error message:

The file "\My Documents\DST07_WM2003.cab" is not a valid Windows CE Setup file.

Does anyone know what might be happening? I am sure it is somethign simple, I just don't know these handhelds very well.

Thanks.

you definitely have WM2003 if you weren't sure.
I would re-download the cab file and copy it to your device again.

ipfx, Are you sure I have Windows Mobile 2003? I am starting to second guess whether I do or not. We have another Axim that actually states that it is running Windows Mobile 2003. This one says Microsoft Pocket PC. Is it possible that I have something older than Windows Mobile 5.0?

Microsoft Pocket PC Version 4.20.1081 is wm2003, 4.21.1088 Build 14049 is wm2003se which is what you might have on your other axim.
Both are older than WM5 which was released after wm2003se.

I wasn't sure if I should accept solutions as nothing worked. I am more than happy to award points for the effort. Will leave that up to whoever knows the best way to handle this. Otherwise it can be closed.
