I have used Linkesoft's ScreenShot Hack on my Palm IIIc (standard display)
and since a few days I use it on a Sony Clie PEG-SJ30 (HiRes display). It
works perfect, and with the supplied Windows conduit the screenshots are
stored as BMP, PNG, GIF, or JPG files on the PC at every HotSync. Of course
they can be viewed on the Palm too.

I cannot fully recommend the emulator because the emulator doesn't run every
application. - If you use a HiRes device with PalmOS 4.x HRCaptDA can be a
solution. It is freeware and available from; LaunchPlug as a review and some
helpful information ( Another
screenshot utility is ScrShot (, but
I have never tested it.
