I have igo Amigo running on my satnav and I have, of course, backed up all the files from the satnav to a directory on my laptop in case of any glitches.
I note on my PC that the main programme file is Amigo.exe but when I try to run that on my PCI get a message that "this is not a valid Win32 application." Is there any way of running the programme on my laptop ie. changing the file extension or converting to another file type?

You cannot do this and remain within the scope of the software license as its for a single device use, getting applications intended to run on a PDA to run on a PC isn't easy even if you have a good PPC emulator, I wouldn't bother if I were you as all you will get is a small screen on the laptop and hours of frustration to even get close (if at all) - Mike

Doubt it....

They make versions for several hardware bsaed sat-navs as well as versions for Android and TELE based mobile phones and the iPhone.
There's probably a Windows Mobile version too, but that's not neccesarily what you've got.
You can use the PC to copy and paste the file but that's not the same as Windows being able to use it itself.
