  • 2. Add MyApp.exe to [Start]->[Settings]
    Has anyone ever tried to add his own program (MyApp.exe) to [Start]->[Settings] like IPAQ Asset Viewer? How could this be done? As I know there are 2 cases similar to this, but they are not what I need. - Create one entry for xxx.cpl in platform.bib, so that xxx.cpl would appear in [Start]->[Settings]. - Create one entry for xxx.exe in platform.dat, so that xxx.exe would appear underneath [Start]->[Programs]. Directory("Windows\Start Menu"):-File("xxx","\Windows\xxx.exe") Thanks for your help !
  • 3. What's the meaning of the sentence "The kernel can only manage 512 MB of physical memory"?
    Physical addresses can be actual RAM or device memory that needs to be accessed by the OS. It is defined by the physical address space from a CPU perspective. The CPU cannot access this directly once the MMU is enabled. The kernel can only manage 512 MB of physical memory. What's the meaning of the sentence "The kernel can only manage 512 MB of physical memory"?

    Is there a local registry editor tool available?
  • 5. MQ1188 initialisation problem
    Hi, Im porting MQ1188 eval board to Intel Lubbock PXA255 development platform using PB4.2. I have problems initialising MQ1188 register. I can write and read back ID=01884D51, DC_0=00000001 and DC_1=0x00000043 register successfully. Upon writing DC_1=0x00000043, MQ1188 3.6864 clock signal is observed at OSCI pin which is what i expect. When I write DC_8=0x868B8649(to enable PLL), then I read back DC_8=0x868B868B which is wrong. The lower word is the same as upper word. It seems 16/32 bits data decoding problem. Anyone has faced this similar problem before? What is the solution for this?Appreciate all of your advice.

1.CE.Net 4.2, CF.Net 1.0, VB.Net 2003 and the TASKBAR

hey folks,

i got a little big problem which is going on my nervs very hard....  i try 
to develop an app for 1.0 which is running on 4.2 in 
2003 (*grrrrr*).

the situation is....
i got a form with a caption like "hello". from that "hello"-form i open 
another form with no caption (both forms a borderless). for that its ok and 
works fine but i got 2 items (for each form one) in the taskbar.

my problem is...
i dont want that. i just want the item in the taskbar from the "hello"-form 
and not from any other forms in my app.

my ideas for that problem are...
i've looks for form-properties like 'showintaskbar=false' or so like in 
'normal-big' for non-handheld-pc but i couldn't find (or see) anything 
in that direction. maybe on of you got the same problem in former days and 
could help me now,PLZ.

thanks for all & everything
I try to do it

2.Socket Bluetooth CF card in WinCE 4.2


I have an Intrinsyc uPDA running Windows CE 4.2 and I wished to put a 
Socket Bluetooth CF card to work with it. I've read in Microsoft's list 
of WinCE-compatible device list that this Bluetooth card is compatible 
with WinCE 4.x.
My goal is to program a distributed application based on the Winsock 
Extensions API of WinCE.

I've built a first OS image using the "Mobile Handheld" template which 
included the "Bluetooth with Universal Loadable Drivers" (and also 
"Built-in CSR Chipset Support", althogh I think this isn't necessary). 
However, when I insert the CF card, nothing happens and I get a 
"controller not present" error when I try to scan for devices in the 
Bluetooth Device Properties from Control Panel.

On the other hand, I've managed to correctly install and use the CF card 
by installing some drivers provided by SocketCom. However, such 
installation makes use of the Drakar bluetooth stack, and therefore I 
cannot program applications that use the native Winsock Extensions API 
(which I think that require the native Microsoft stack to be used).

My questions:
- Does anyone have experience setting up this Bluetooth CF card with 
Windows CE? What am I doing wrong?
- Is my assumption about the Winsock Extension right, i.e. do I need to 
use a bluetooth device that makes use of the native Microsoft BT stack 
in order to use the Winsock Extensions?

Thank you for your help.
Best regards,
Joao Barreto

3.CF ATAPI transfer rate low on CE.NET 4.2

4.Problem running .NET CF 1.0 apps on CE 4.2 Core

If I add .NET CF 1.0 to CE4.2 image then applications that are buitl for the 
CF start but do not execute - ie WinCE does not complain and the app seems to 
run, however none of the application code is executed.

If I then add Standard SDK support to the image the CF apps exeute normally.

The problem is that the Standard SDK breaks my licencing agreements as I 
only have Core licence.

I gues my main question is should I be able to run .NET CF under the Core 
licence and if so how (or what could be going wrong with my build)?

5.CF ATAPI transfer rate low on CE.NET 4.2

As Steve mentioned, practically all commercially available CF cards do not 
support DMA.

The VIA ATAPI driver is a third party driver.  Did you try the standard 
ATAPI driver provided with Platform Builder?

My system is a CEPC with a IDE CF adapter. I'm using a 40 cable (flat 
I have tried several CF cards: Kingston, SanDisk, HP with the same transfer 
Here the result of my tests:
Create 2 DOS partitions (C: and D:)
Put a 3.5MB file in C:UNDER DOS:
Copy the 3.5MB file from C:\ to D:Transfer time: 10secs

Copy the 3.5MB file from Hard Disk1 to Hard Disk 2
Transfer time: 115 secs!!!
Copy the 3.5MB file from Hard Disk1 to /Temp (memory file system)
Transfer time: 70 secs!!!
By setting the "detail" view in Windows explorer, looks like it transfers 
the file in batches of 64Kb

I also have tried to disable DMA from the VIA ATAPI registry and the 
transfer rate is exactly the same.

Any help/ideas/comments are very appreciated.
