  • 1. Help with character set in mobile IE
    Hi, When I open a web page with a cyrillic character set Cyrillic (Windows) I can read everything, but sites with encoding KOI8-R, although I get cyrillic text, are not readable. Changing Default character set under Tools->Options... does not do anything. I do not even think it changes character set at all. I tried playing with other character sets with the same result, even refreshing page ... Any idea? Oh, yes, it is Dell X50v with windows 2003. Thanks

1.Urgent help: file transfer limit of 999 files???


I am doing some research and testing for moving across a 
huge number of text files to pocket pc via ActiveSync, 
the file transfer will always terminate at file no 999 
although there are still plenty of space left on the 
storage card. the same if i zip those files and unzip 
them on the pocket pc storage card, it seems that a 
single folder can only take 999 files. 

But if i use a card reader, i can transfer all the files 
(few thousand) into a directory without any issues, and 
pocket pc is able to access, read and search the files in 
that folder without any problems as well.

Anyone have any ideas on why is this happen and how to 
solve it, providing that i must transfer the files over 
via activesync only.

My SD card is on FAT32 format.

4.CAB files don't copy to storage card?

Intermec 700 Mono Pocket PC.  Windows CE 3.0

These units are used in a data collection application.  I have the
unit configured to automatically launch a custom data collection
application when the unit is warm-booted.  The way this is achieved is
by modifying a 'autouser.dat' file in a special directory on the
storage card.

I have created a CAB file to re-install all of my needed applications
on a cold boot.  But the cold boot process overwrites my custom
'autouser.dat' on the storage card with a generic version, so the unit
no longer automatically launches the custom application on a warm
boot.  I was hoping that I could have the file replaced as part of the
CAB file installation (I'm a CE/Pocket PC newbie) but found out that
the storage card is not supported as an output directory.  So, I don't
know how to automatically replace the 'autouser.dat' file on the
storage card with my custom version during a cold boot.

I have an inquiry in at Intermec, but I'm not sure I'll get a response
since these units were bought off of Ebay and I don't have a support
contract.  I was hoping someone here would know of a way to
automatically replace the 'autouser.dat' file on the storage card with
my custom version.  The users of the devices out in the field range
from mostly clueless to completely clueless so using File Explorer to
copy this file from point A to B has to be considered a last-ditch

Any of you Pocket PC experts have an idea how I can make this happen?
