All of this software has been successfully tested on a Philips Velo 1. That means (in theory) that it should work on all HPCs with MIPS processors running Windows CE 1.0. If you have a device with an SH3 processor, please keep in mind that I have not tested the software on your processor but I have to the best of my ability included links to files for your device. This compilation of software has taken many long days to locate, download, and finally test. With that in mind, I would urge you to spread the word about this site to help others with Windows CE 1.0 devices that feel stranded. Enjoy!


Check out my pictures of UNREAL TOURNAMENT RUNNING ON WINDOWS CE 1.0.

Take a look at the Windows CE 1.0 EASTER EGGS.

Please help the Velo, Nino & Uniden Remote Control Software Project.

A table of the Philips Velo 1 Modem Strings is now online.

Is your Windows CE 1.0 HPC transferring to slow? Learn how to Connect at 115,200bps.

Learn how to connect with HPC Explorer 1.1 to Windows 2000 or Windows XP. I haven't been able to try this myself because I don't have Windows 2000/XP so I'd really appreciate it if you could tell me if it works for you. Thanks!


I understand that more software for Windows CE 1.0 exists. That's why if you know of any software not listed, please tell me the product's:


Please email me of ANY troubles you may have downloading software. I will do all that I can to fix any links that become broken. Or you can post a message on the PocketPCcity Philips Velo board where others and myself usually hang out.

(by mov Software)

Microsoft Pocket Internet Explorer 1.1 If you don't have this version then get it. Includes support for cookies, security options, caching and saving pages. FREEWARE. Microsoft
Microsoft Power Toys This FREEWARE program from Microsoft adds all kinds of extra useful utilities to WinCE 1.0.

(by Hayes Haugen)
Paragraph Calligrapher 5.1 Easily the best handwriting and printing recognition program for CE 1.0. Sadly the 5.1 version is the last one that is released for CE 1.0. But never mind because it is really good. As I said it recognizes both handwriting and printing. This versatile program gives CE 1.0 a spell checker as well. This program is a 15 day trial but costs very little to buy because it's getting older. A definite must try that may lead to a buy. It's very fun! Paragraph
pcAnywhere CE Symantec has just made this title FREEWARE! This cool utility allows you to access your desktop computer from anywhere in the world via your HPC. It allows you to do more than just copy and upload files. In fact you actually use the programs loaded on your desktop. Imagine browsing the Internet with Internet Explorer 6.0 or using Microsoft Office on your Velo. Whatever is loaded on your desktop you can use and it works very fast on a Velo 1. To get the pcAnywhere CE software click one of the links in the cell to the right of this one. Do NOT download the software from Symantec's page because it is corrupt. Many users will need to view Symantec's pcAnywhere CE page that has links to support and system requirements. One person has complained that Symantec's pages do not work with Netscape browsers. They work well with Internet Explorer. Symantec

FREEWARE. Velo 1 only
(by Chris De Herrera's Windows CE Website)
Philips Velo 1 Windows CE 2.0 Upgrade This still requires that you have a Philips Velo 1 and the Windows CE 2.0 ROM card. You'll need Windows CE Services 2.0 (although the newer ActiveSync 3.1 software is probably a better alternative) to be able to sync with your desktop computer. You may also want to install the Microsoft Pocket Power Point 1.0 software on your Velo 1. Special thanks goes to Sharpie for this software. THIS VERSION IS NOT CORRUPT ANYMORE!!! Sharpie

Sticky TankZone (broken link) A true 3D first person shooter game. It's a clone of the classic BattleZone arcade game of the early 80's. This FREEWARE game takes full advantage of the Velo 1's superior power. I'd advise everyone who gets it to change the game speed from "fast" to "very fast". Without a doubt this is WinCE 1.0 programming at it's best. Splendid job Sticky! Sticky Software
