Why declare HEX rather than DECIMAL in “reginit.ini”? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am developing my own embedded OS based on Windows CE 6.0 Kernel, i have generated my OS runtime image and uploaded it to the emulator, then i have developed an application to launch immediately with the OS and i have used registry to launch it, in the project.reg file i must declare the process launch and the dependence :

    “Launch99”=”MyApp.exe”
    “Depend99”=hex:3C,00

    when i look up in the "reginit.ini" file i find :

    “Launch20”=”device.dll”
    “Launch30”=”gwes.dll”
    “Depend30”=hex:14,00
    “Launch50”=”explorer.exe”
    “Depend50”=hex:14,00,1E,00
    “Launch60”=”servicesStart.exe”
    “Depend60”=hex:14,00
    “Launch99”=”MyApp.exe”
    “Depend99”=hex:3C,00

    thats OK but my question is basic : why should i declare the dependence in HEX value rather than DECIMAL as the process ?

  • The answer is even more basic, hex values are supported and decimal are not.
