Compaq iPaq 3630 ROM upgrade issues

I want to upgrade the ROM in my iPaq 3630 from version 2.07 to 2.20. I downloaded a file called SP22898.exe from the website. I use Pocket PC 2002. When installing this file, at the moment it is checking the current ROM image, it says that I first have to install Pocket PC 2002 prior to installing the update (error 116) (see attachment), but I already have PPC 2002 installed! I couldn't find an answer on the HP support forums, that's why I am asking you guys to help me out once again, please?

it might be looking for an original file that was changed by an update?
I kept myself to all updates issued by Compaq/HP, so that may not be a problem. I think
I see now. My fault, I am using a non-legal version of PPC2002, because the legal version isn't for sale anymore. The official version updates the ROM to 2.14, while mine (the illegal one) updated it to version 2.07. I don't think it would be wise to ask for a solution for that, eh?

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(
