  • 4. Compact Framework to win32 Today Screen component
    Hi All, Does anyone know if it is possible for a .NET CF application to communicate with a today screen plugin written in C++/win32? Since it is not currently possible to write a Compact Framework application for the Today Screen I was trying to think of a work-around. One thought was to create an empty shell of a today plugin that would accept data from a .NET CF application (via interop) for display. Before I even go down this route. Is it even possible? Thanks! - Crabby
  • 5. Problem of deploying compact framework to device
    Inside VS.NET 2003, I have no problem debuging and executing programs in PC2002 and PC2003 emulators but I have no success deploying the framework and program to the device, which is Toshiba e755 PocketPC with Intel AX255 CPU. I always get the error when I try to deploy the compiled program to the device: "There were deployment errors, continue?" I have ActiveSync 3.7.1 (installed after VS.NET and perfectly working.) I even downloaded the Windows CE Utilities for Visual Studio .NET 2003 and configure CPU in the add-in to be ARMV4. However I am very confused by the README in the download that states a lot of stuffs like copying ToolHelp.dll, WCELoad.exe etc. My questions are :- 1. What am I missing basically to have the failur of debugging ? 2. Do I need to register WinCEx86Device.reg on the host computer if I am using a ARMSV4 CPU instruction set ? P.S. I have no problem when using eVC++ 4.0. That means my installation of the PC2003 SDK should be correct. Thanks for any insight. Stanley

GPS map/routing programs are reported to use the same database (USPS in the
USA) for estimations of Lat/Log coordinates based on house numbers.
Locations are typically off by 3-5 houses and may be in error by as much as
two blocks. The only way to avoid this error is to enter the actual Lat/Lon
coordinates for the buildings of interest. This is usually implemented with
"favorites" or "point of interest" routines. This approach lacks the
versatility and ease of use of an address book.
Unfortunately, there is only one known HPC compatible program that includes
user enterable and editable coordinates in an address book format. This is
Garmin's iQue 3600 package. The software has all of the appropriate address
book functions, but it is only available on a Garmin proprietary
software/hardware package. The system uses a Palm handheld computer which
lacks the memory size and computing capability that are required for many
HPC functions.
The present circumstance is thus that there are no known general HPC
software packages that provide the combined address book/coordinate

2.Using PocketPCs/PDAs for Whole house Audio

Has anyone considered using a bunch of PocketPCs for controlling whole
house audio?  They can be had with wi-fi/ir for around $200 and have
great color screens. You could control things like the SlimDevices
Squeezebox MP3 player including viewing album art work, and create as
many screens for other commands as you want. The LCDs designed for
whole house audio are very pricey and pretty limited unless you get a
very expensive controller.  You could also just pick it up out of the
cradle and carry it around. You could also browse the web.  All of
this is contingent on having one with wi-fi and a wireless network.  
I envision mounting it in a cradle to charge/power it and having a
tiny IR receiver mounted right above it to send IR commands (with or
w/o it in the cradle).
