  • 1. Hive bsed Registry using DiskOnChip
    Hi, I tried to use hive based registry on a device with storage medium an M-System's "DiskOnChip 2000". I added the Platform builder component "Hive bsed Registry" and the following lines in registry: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\init\BootVars] "SystemHive"="DiskOnChip\\System\\system.hv" "ProfileDir"="DiskOnChip\\System" "Flags"=dword:3 But the resulting image (NK.BIN) does not work (the system does not start). Can anyone help me? Thank you.
  • 2. DMA.dll
    Is there DMA.dll or dma.lib sample code for Mainstone?
  • 3. DLL File
    How to include a certain DLL file inside CE image, and does not need to use this order of RegSvrCE ?
  • 4. How to create a system-backup on SD card?
    I've got a PND with a crashed WinCE sytem on it. ActiveSync cannot recognize it anymore so for a noob like me it's impossible to restore/replace certain (broken) system files. Logging on the serial port it looks for a MultiXIP image and chain.lst file on the SD card (probably for restoring the system files....but i'm not sure). But these files are not supplied by the manufacturer of the PND. If i take exactly the same type PND with working system on it, would it be possible to create somehow these MultiXIP and chain.lst files? AFAIK WinCE 4.2 is used.

BSPs are not written for processors.  They are written for *platforms*.  A 
platform is a hardware design that contains a processor.  A BSP written for 
one platform will generally not run on a different platform, even if it 
contains the same processor.

So you either need a BSP for your platform, or you need to *write* a BSP for 
your platform.  You can start with a BSP for a similar hardware design, but 
you still have to port it to your hardware.

1.CF Cloning via USB to IDE to CF


I have a configuration now using a USB to IDE box with an IDE-CF adapter
installed. I also use Acronis True Image to copy a paritioned image to my
CF. This works great. However, my IDE-CF adapter is only good for non-DMA
CF. Does anyone know of an adapter that will handle DMA fixed CF?

Much appreciated


2.unable to download video from CF card

Hi, I tried to download a video file from my CF card using Windows Media Player and I am getting an error message 80070017.  Unfortunatley this film is VERY important to me and I wondered if anyone was able to help.  The weird thing is that it will play back on the camera but not in my card reader.  If this matters at all I am using a Canon A70 and a Sandisk card reader,  This problem only happens when I use this card which is 128meg.  I have repeatly formated the card and nothing seems to make it work.........PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Signed a panacky lady   

3.Download CE image on a CF card

Sounds like you haven't tried anything.  How about just copying it to the 
card and making sure that your bootloader knows the drive number of the 
card?  You've told us absolutely nothing about the target system, either, so 
we can't really point you to source code to read or documentation.  Is it 
x86?  What BSP are you using?

4.Image download using CF card

My old board has no support from the vendor anymore and it is initially 
running on
prioprietary OS thus there is no BSP. It used to run on CF card. The files 
extracted are
1) autorun.cmd
2) boot.rom
3) config.xml
4) update.z  - my research shows that it is a unix compressed archive file

update.z should be the proprietary OS. If i replace the update.z with BSP, 
will the OS boots up properly?

5.Downloading BMP through CF card

understand that 
1) boot loader varies from device to devices
2) Normally with an WinCE evaluation board, they comes with BSP with 
    on how to get started
3) Script is completely custom and nonstandard. Need to contact whoever 
wrote for help,

1)There is no source or support on this board
2)Initially the board is running on proprietary OS not win CE, now i am 
porting it over to CE

Extracting the CF data, i am thinking of replacing the initial kernel 
update.z with CE BSP.dll (.o)
There are 4 files in CF card
1) Autorun.cmd
2) bootrom
3) config.xml
4) update.z : which is the proprietary OS.
Asking help if i replace the update.z with the BSP (OAL,drivers), will the 
board still able to boot successfully.
Right now, this is the strategy that i come out with, I am right now 
struggling to create the BSP.
