I only JUST got my HP Jornada 728. I've downloaded Adobe Acrobat and some other programs...but when I unzip them, there are A LOT of little files.
I synched them anyway unto my Jornada, and they came up as a million little files too...How do I get the program to run?!
Everytime I click on a file, it says that I have to run the application first....but there is nothing with a .exe extension! There's no setup.exe or anything....

What am I supposed to do?

You're dealing with CAB files (*.cab). These are self-installing archive files that you copy directly onto the device (either through ActiveSync's Explore function, or by copying the file onto a Compact Flash card directly from the desktop PC using My Computer or Windows Explorer). You then locate the file in the 728 using My Handheld PC, and double-tap on the CAB file icon. The application then installs automatically.

I can't find a .cab file. All the file extensions are like .051 or .056 or .003 etc.

No, I'm talking about the one big file you unzipped to get all these little files. You don't unzip it - you just copy it whole over to the H/PC. Then you double-tap on it there to unzip it on the H/PC.
