I have a T415 and am having some problems getting FileZ v5.22 and Due Yesterday v5.2B1 to coexsist with each other. They are both by NoSleep.net, so they should be compatible. However, each time I load the new beta of DY, I lose the FileZ program. Each time I reload FileZ I lose the DY program.

They have different .PRC's, i.e. FileZ-filez.prc, and DY-yesterday.prc. Therefore I shouldn't be overwriting the loaded .prc when I sync the new .prc. So I don't know what's going on. I do know that both programs have recently switched from CodeWarrior to PRC Tools, but I wouldn't think that that would cause this to happen.

Has anyone else experienced this problem, or is it just me? I have emailed NoSleep.net/support, but have not heard back yet. :confused:

BTW: I did try FileZ v5.3B1, but it crashed my system every time.

Could it be that the creator id is the same? I believe that Palm OS doesn't allow more than 1 app with the same creator. Good news is you can use FileZ to change its own Creator to something else, and then load DY. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the tip, Serotta. Do you mean the Unique ID, or Creator field? Niether field seems to be editable.

I use FileZ and DueYesterday on my NX with bo problems. In fact they are both in flash right now as well.

Yes, I was using both also, before I installed DY v5.2B1 (beta 7/29/2003). Are you using the DY beta w/o problems?

Oh sorry. No I'm still back at 5.0 with Due Yesterday.

LanMan, I am talking about the "Creator" field, and I can change it using Filez. I changed the creator from filz to fiil and it works fine. I brought up this point because when creating application "stubs" for ShadowPlan databases, they would get overridden if the Creator was the same. I believe Jeff had to change this to use different Creator ID's for each.

Come-on! Somebody try this combo on their Clie and let me know if you have the same problem. Pleeeaaassseee!, or I'll sit on the floor and hold my breath and kick my feet and yell and cry and..., oh, sorry! I'm a new dad and I'm just thinking about what lies ahead. ;)

NoSleep has released Due Yesterday v5.2B2 which fixes this problem. FYI
