Smache Log Import Utility This little utility runs on your Windows PC and allows you to create a Smache Visit file that you can import into Smache. All it needs is a copy of your latest 'My Finds' pocket query from It only takes a second to run, then just transfer the file to your pocket pc and import it into Smache by choosing 'Import' from the main menu. You'll then be ready to go with all your find information up to date! This isn't a program you need to install, just unzip the download file and run it! Download it above.
.NET Compact Framework 1.0 with Service Pack 3 or greater is required to run Smache. Units sold with Windows Mobile 2003 or later have .NET Compact Framework pre-installed, but you may have to upgrade to service pack 3. Download the .NET Compact Framework 2.0 here.
Smache is NOT a 'lightweight' program. While memory preservation was a top priority when creating this application, it is meant to be as comprehensive as reasonable. For good performance, you should have 6-12 MB of free program memory on your handheld.
Smache databases can get big quickly. I DO NOT recommend creating your database in your main memory. Built-in storage is the preferred location, and if you have a separate storage card, that's even better.
Smache does not support VGA mode. You should use a non-VGA mode to run Smache.
