Sorry this is possibly true. However I am currently away on holiday without much 
internet connectivity so can not completely determine this as the case.

>From memory one release I made accidentally had the requried OS version set as 
4.21 (i.e. Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition), meaning the executables wouldn't 
run on plain Windows Mobile 2003 devices.

I didn't pick this up until it was released as I don't have any 2003 powered 
devices, and the emulators for 2003 run Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition.

Perhaps in the new year, once I get back from holiday there may be a new release. 
I'll fix up this issue at that stage although I may need some help in testing it.
