Having problems with installing applications on PDA cold boot.

Hey
At work we have 4 of the Symbol Scanners which are used constantly. I think the backup batteries are dead and as such when they change the main battery, the unit cold boots which in turn wipes out all the customisations.

Once the unit cold boots i am trying to copy two folders (located in the "application" directory) to two locations in the programs memory.
One application is the eRCP and the other is J9 (which I think is a Java environment from IBM).

The problem:
I have created a ".cpy" file which is supposed to copy eRCP to "\" and J9 to "\Program Files\". When the unit boots it has no problems copying the eRCP directory, but it completely seems to ignore the J9 directory. No matter how i arrange my cpy file, it just refuses to move the J9 directory.

The main issue here is that according to some research, the J9 folder has to be in \Program Files\ else the application won't run.

So i am looking for any way to be-able to move the J9 directory. Even if anyone can assist me in customizing the default Windows Mobile logon.. anything.

Thanks
Stephen

If everything is erased then where is the data being copied from?

The scanner has 2 sections of memory, one section gets erased when the unit cold boots, the other is like flash memory and doesn't get erased. The \Application directory is on the memory that will keep its contents, and everything else is in the memory that looses it contents once it looses power.

This issue has been solved....

MS provides a niftly little command prompt for the scanner so a batch file worked.
