Microsoft reader activation fix (sticky?)

ok, so the long and the short of it is that a key filr for reader is being left out of a lot of wm5 phones because microsoft didnt add it in. the issue is that when you got to activate reader on the 700wx ( the 6700 doesnt have this issure) you get an error message sayin that ur trying to activate an older version of ppc and u need ppc2002 or newer. the soloution:
First download and install microsoft reader, then download the attached file.
1. Cradle your device
2. Open Activesync on your PC
3. Let the device sync up to the PC
4. Click on the "Explore" button in Activesync
5. Go to Tools | Folder Options
6. Go the "View" tab
7. Go to the "hidden files and folders" section
8. Check "Show hidden files and folders"
9. Uncheck "hide extensions for known file types"
10. Uncheck "Hide protected operating system files (You will likely want to reset this setting back once you have sucessfully completed the activation process.
11. Close the Folder Options dialog
12. Click on the "My Windows Mobile Device" folder
13. Click on the "Windows" folder
14. Drop the file attached into this folder
15. Soft reset your device
16. Once the device has been soft reset you may once again attempt activation. Please note that your activation component must be installed to the default/device location in order to function properly with the Microsoft Reader. Failure to do so will result in further errors/issues.

there ya go folks
