hpcboot-sh3.exe fatals when started on HP 620LX WinCe 2.00 with msg:
Fatal Application Error:
Application HPCBOOT.EXE has performed an illegal operation and will 
be shut down. If the problem persists, contact the program vendor.

Exception: 0xc0000005
Address: 00000000

Copy hpcboot-sh3.exe to HP 620LX or run it from inserted Compact Flash card.
Compile hpcboot-sh3.exe with wince 2.00 compiler, not with wince 2.11 compiler.

I suspect hpcboot-sh3.exe was compiled with eVC 3.0.
eVC 3.0 has compilers for wince 2.00, wince 2.11 but
full sdk available for free only for win 2.11 
(when you run eVB 3.0 you can't choose
wince 2.00 project - only wince 2.11 project). 

Unfortunately program compiled with wince 2.11 compiler doesn't start
on wince 2.00 (hp 620lx has wince 2.00). 

There is not full "plug-and-compile" sdk for wince 2.00 free available,
(you can only download for free incomplete version, full is paid for 
Visual C 6.0), but there is a fix for it: install sdk for wince 2.11,
and overwrite sdk headers with proper ones from incomplete wince 2.00 sdk, and overwite also compilers for wince 2.11 with compilers for wince 2.00 (fortunately eVC 3.0 has compilers for wince 2.00 if you dig in its directory).

Full description how to make eVC 3.0 compile for WinCE 2.00 is at:

 There's a separate hpcboot200.exe compiled specifically for WinCE 2.00.
 Have you tried it?
