  • 1. Bug in NetUI rc file
    Looks like a bug in the CE 4.2 NetUI rc file wnet.c and resource.h use and define IDD_RESPWD_N and IDD_RESPWD_W, but the .rc file has IDD_RESPWD_N and IDD_RESPWD wnet.c compiles and links since IDD_RESPWR_W is defined. The .res file shows "IDD_RESPWD", so the rc compilation handles the lack of a define for IDD_RESPWD in its own way
  • 2. !!! Time and Tick Count Resets !!!
    I have posted this problem before. I am noticing in emulator builds both debug and release the tick count and time seems to reset. Our application does not set the time. However, when it is running I am seeing the system time reset and the tick count reset on a transition between minutes. Example: 1:01:59 one second later it changes to 1:01:00. It happens very randomly. When this occurs I notice the tick count resets too. Note: Our application simulates sampling data every 200 ms and performs a lot of math ops to determine counting statistics. We do not have SNTP enabled. Looking at the trace output of emulator in PB I do not see any information about what may be causing the reset. What would cause this?
  • 3. fileopen component and open/save common dialogs
    Is the source for the fileopen components anywhere in the \public or \private trees of CE 4.2 (or 5.0 preview) It would be nice to be able to resize the open and save common dialogs to fit my LCD, but these dialogs have more variable controls than most dialogs, so just working on the .res files isn't an option.

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?

Absolutely, positively, no.

1.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?

2.'corrupted images' when using CF card reader

Hi there,

I've pretty throughly read through the threads covering problems with the 
Camera & Scanner Wizard, but couldn't find anything addressing this problem, 
I apologize if this has already been address elsewhere.

I have a Canon A80 and can download pictures no problem from the camera 
using the Canon software. But if I try to use my CF card reader (LaCie 
8-in-1) the images are corrupted (bads of incorrect colour). As I said I've 
tried all the 'Camera Wizard' fixes but still no luck. I am using XP home 
with SP2.

Thanks in advance,

3.How to identify CF storage card name with logical volume ( such as card created using ramdisk )

I have been doing some work similar to this.

You might try linking with storeapi.lib and using the FindFirstStore,
FindNExtStore, etc APIs.  Once you get a handle to the store you can call
GetSToreInfo and it will fill in a STOREINFO struct.  Here you can look at
the dwDeviceType member for the type of store.

Continuing with the handle to the store, you can call FindFirstPartition,
FindNextPartition, etc. to get a handle to a partition.  Once you have the
handle to the partition, you can call GetPartitionInfo and it will fill in a
PARTINFO structure.  Here you will find the volume name of the partition.

When using the above calls, you pass in a pointer to a struct (STOREINFO or
PARTINFO).  Make sure you set the cbSize variable to sizeof the structure
you are passing otherwise the call will fail with ERROR_INVALID_PARAMETER.


pStoreInfo = (PSTOREINFO) LocalAlloc(LPTR, sizeof(STOREINFO));
if(pStoreInfo != NULL) {
   pStoreInfo->cbSize = sizeof(STOREINFO);
   GetStoreInfo(hStore, pStoreInfo);
   // do something with the information

However, I don't know how to hook the insertion notification.
