Hi Fabrice

I’m puzzled by the symptoms you describe, but I’m thinking it must be a low memory issue on your eMate.

You might be able to gather more information by enabling logging in Newton Connection > Preferences > Advanced. You need to quit and relaunch Newton Connection before trying package installation again. You can check the log yourself (its filepath is on the Preferences pane), it’s just a text file, or send it to me for analysis. If we get lucky it might report a Newton error.

The eMate shows up in NCX and I can take screenshots and a make a backup, but when I want to install apps on the eMate there is a problem: The transfer starts, but when the loading bar is about a third of the way up, it always stops. This means that I can't install any more software. There is enough memory on the eMate (more than 500 KB) and I tried different transfer speeds, but nothing helps.
