  • 4. How to verify NK.BIN builds for QA?
    Hello, Is it possible to verify that two nk.bin files built with identical source and project configurations are equivalent? Our QA department needs to build our OS nk.bin from project source we provide and verify it against a reference nk.bin we provide. The nk.bin binary image changes between subsequent project builds with identical source and project settings, so a simple binary comparison or crc on the images won't work. Is there a mechanism already present in Platform Builder or perhaps a tool to achieve this? Thanks for any suggestions, -Randy

Internet Explorer in Windows Ce 50 and .png-Files

Postby TWF6em8 » Fri, 07 Mar 2008 18:51:02 GMT


I need to see .png-Files in the Internet Explorer in Windows Ce 5.0.

I added  the following Catalog Componets:
and Internet Explorer PNG Image Decoder

But it still does not work. I only can see a red cross. In the 
PlatformBuilder-Help it says, png is supportet with the Internet Explorer. 
What else can I try? Is there someting I miss?

Thanks for help,

1.MPEG files in directory cause Explorer.exe to use 50% or 100%

2.MPEG files in directory cause Explorer.exe to use 50% or 100% CPU

My PC was showing Explorer using 50 percent or 100 percent CPU usage for 
hours, even though th PC was doing nothing.

I've found various threads on the Internet on how to stop Explorer in XP 
going to 50% or 100% CPU usage if it finds a big AVI file.  I'm assuming it 
also happens for MPG files too because that's what happened to me.  The 
(probably non-Microsoft approved) fix is to change or delete the Default 
value for HKey_Classes_Root\SystemFileAssociations\.AVI\Shellex\Property 

I don't have a Default value in the Registry for MPG or MPEG files so 
apparently I shouldn't still have the problem.  But I do.

My "My Videos" folder contained 2 .MPG files, one 3.6GB and one 4.9GB.  
Whenever I displayed the contents of the folder, Explorer.exe used 50% of the 
CPU usage.  If I try to do anything else with the directory, the other 
program may use the other 50%.  I haven't done much checking on the second 
program issue, but I know it happens with Explorer.  I've left it running 
many times in case it was looking for something in the files, but CPU usage 
stayed high for literally hours.  I always ended up restarting the PC.

Note that I'm NOT right-clicking on the files.  I'm just displaying them.

Displaying the files in a MS Office 2007 Open File Dialog does not cause 
problems.  Displaying the files in the Open File dialog of VideoRedo TV Suite 
(a video editing suite) also has the problem.  Explorer and VideoRedo both 
use 50% each.

I 'fixed' the problem for myself by deleting the two files.  Now my machine 
runs well again. It was a very nasty week though.  I spent a lot of time 
searching for the cause of the problem.  Now I know most people can fix it by 
disabling some of the XP functionality.  That seems to be the wrong way to go 
about it though.

If this is a problem for many people, why is it still there?  If Explorer 
has a problem with a file, surely it shouldn't use huge amounts of CPU time 
for long periods of time.  Why doesn't it give up?  It's affecting the 
usability of the PC and, worse, may make people think they have a virus or a 
hopelessly corrupted system.  I know I did.

If it's a problem just waiting to happen for everyone, can we ask Microsoft 
to correct it?

Does anyone else get this problem?

3.Windows explorer quits when trying to open png files

I've been having a big problem lately with opening png image files.  The png 
files are the only ones that cause Explorer to crash (I don't have a problem 
with jpeg, gif, bmp etc). I can't even open up the files in Picture It (or 
any other application, for that matter) to try and set a file association, 
the application is immediately closed.

I uninstalled Picture It and then re-installed it, I just don't know what 
else to do.  It seems like the system doesn't recognize the png image files 
at all.  Is there a way to fix this?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

4.Windows Vista Explorer using 50% CPU all the time

I have task manager open and can see that Windows Explorer is using 50% cpu 
all the time, this is not good. I have rebooted in safe mode and performed a 
full virus scan using 2 anti virus programs. I have also scanned for spyware. 
Explorer will crash on occasion and has to be restarted in task manager as a 
new task under apps.

5.Windows Explorer at 50-100% CPU

I understand that Windows Explorer will hang ig there is a "bad" file in a
directory Explorer is exploring...  I know that one has to delete the file
to prevent the behavior from recurring, but... I have a large video file
that I would rather repair than delete - is there a utility that can
"repair" offending files?
