Writing Right to Left

  • When trying to register to some 3rd party Software you're unable to type the registration code or it's not accepted:
  • Use one of the programs that allow you to boot in safe mode (like monocube SafeMode) and then you can safely register. After registering boot to normal mode and you're done!
  • Works on HP iPAQ rx3715 (and all Win Mobile 2003se)
