I'm all for it being "more" playable. But can someone explain to me how to get it playable at all. I've tried numerous games and they all give me a blank screen for 4-5 seconds then return to the game list. Is there some special configuration I need to change?

The installer doesnt seem to work, sure isnt doing anything here. Followed all instructions, tried many times, doesnt show up in the remove programs list, doesnt seem to be installed.

Other programs install ok.

I think somethings wrong with it...

Thats odd.
Did you try doing a manual install? Just copy over the cab file to the temp folder (or anywhere for that matter) and then tapping it in file explorer on the device. This should install it in the default location.

Did you download and install Game Roms into the proper Folder?
If so they may be newer ROMS and may not work. Currently you need game ROMS based on MAME version .36
Frogger, puckman, and tempest are the ones to try first. If they work, then the Emulator is working correctly and the other games just aren't playable at this time or the ROMS aren't correct.

Techmaster,

I think MidiSax is refering to the Dell D-Pad fix installer, not the MameCE installer.
