  • I am having problems in launching an application on my pocket pc emulator

    it throws an exception saying

    +  e {"WaitForSystemIdle:  You must have QA.DLL in the \\Windows or \\Release directory, and the version of QA.dll must match your operating system."} System.Exception {System.MissingMethodException}

  • Hi dexter.harsh

    This problem occurs because Windows CE 5.0 Platform Builder is missing the following files:

  • I was seeing similar issue using the "Windows Mobile 6.0 SDK" and trying to launch some automation.


    The solution (for me) was to find the QL.DLL in the

    "C:\program files\Windows Mobile 6 SDK\tools\Windows Mobile Test Framework" folder (after unzipping).


    Next, inside the Visual Studio project, add the file ("Add Existing File"), and set it's properites to Copy Always (so it's always passed on to the Emulator session).

  • Hi Markowitz,

     I met the similar problem, the error message is "Can't find PInvoke DLL 'datk_ext.dll'", I want to try your solution.


    But the problem is after I unzip the Windows Mobile Test Framework, I cant't find QL.DLL. I look into the Device folder under it. Could you tell me which version did you use? Is there any other way to get QL.dll?
