WIndows Mobile 6.5 restrict Settings menu? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi!

    We got a requirement to disable the settings menu in windows mobile 6.5 and be able to launch such menu from the application we developed.

    In the past versions of WM, I found a fix where you just delete the settings folder and the settings option in the HHTaskbar won't show, but in this version that trick does not work, if I do that and make a soft reboot the whole start menu links disappear, so that's a no go.

    I also tried setting the registry key "\Security\Shell\StartInfo\Settings" where I have some entries, Group,Icon,Itemposition and rank, I tried playing with the first 3 but no luck, the settings will still show up on the start menu.

    I was almost sure there would be a settings.lnk whick I could just move to another folder and make the settings vanish but I couldn't find it anywhere so I'm guessing the settings icon is not associated to a .exe so I have 2 problems, how to show the menu from code and how to hide the item in the start menu??

    Any help will be greatly appreciated :)

    Thanks a lot
