Is it possible to reconfigure Windows Ce 5.0 Core?

PEB
1,418 Recognized Expert Top Contributor
Hello everybody,

I have GPS Nokia with Windows CE 5.0 Core. It has integrated navigation system and it's searching Route 66 by default as navigator.

The system gives the ability also to read photos and videos.

However, i want that the system can execute every program compatible with Windows CE 5.0 Core. Also other navigators, that are installed on the SD.

Any advice is appreciated

Thank YOU!

Yes this is possible, basically, when the device boots it will be being forced to boot up your Navigation system using a registry key. You need to locate this key and remove it.

It will be similar to

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACH INE\init]
"Launch10"="she ll.exe"
"Launch20"="dev ice.exe"
"Depend20"=hex: 0a,00
"Launch30"="gwe s.exe"
"Depend30"=hex: 14,00

So Launch30 will probably be your application, so just delete that one. A standard mobile registry editor should let you do this, but getting it connected to the PC is usually the issue. Most devices have weird soft buttons that can be held during a re-boot to pause boot and allow you to connect.

These is also another small application that you can get to show/hide the windows task bar on these devices to allow you to run your applications full screen (As Tom Tom won't and your taskbar will always be onscreen so when you tap the bottom you get windows interfearance)

Actually you need gwes.exe to run any windowed applications on your device. gwes is the graphical windows and events system. The init key just laynches whatever you have as init on boot. Thats all. What exactly are you trying to do because you post didn't make any sense to me?

Hi, I am trying to get into windows CE with this device. My main problem with this PND is that when you reboot the device all files and configuration made dissapear from it. If I change anything in registry it has no effect when you reboot it. For that, I am not able to install my own applications. Is there any solution possible?

Yes. Get a copy of system builder and all the source files required. Compile your own copy of windowsCE and replace the image on there.
Its way more information then we can give in the scope of this forum though

It sounds like the file system is mounted in RAM and there is no persistence between boots. You have to mount NAND or NOR as read/write and then changes you make will be written to storage. Alternatively you can run an image from a SD or similar card if your platform supports it.

The image that comes on the device is probably just a very bare bones system and resets each time there is a power cycle. You should contact the manufacturer or reseller for support on these types of issues.

I understand that the standard Python distribution is considered the C-Python. Howerver, the current C-Python is really a combination of C and Python implementation.
