How to get Windows CE 7 Platform.dat to overwrite older files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Anyone know how to force Windows CE to overwrite files previously copied by platform.dat. When I'm upgrading a previous build with a new build, I want the old files copied by platform.dat to be overwritten with files in the new build.

    I'd also like the registry to be overwritten with the new registry entries.

    In CE 6, the system would detect that the registry and platform.dat files were updated, and overwrite the old ones. CE 7 doesn't seem to be doing this anymore. I need to get the files updated when a new image is downloaded.

    Thanks,

    Jim

    I don't think that you have had a reply because what you report isn't the experience that the rest of us have.

    Are your changes being copied to the _FLATRELEASEDIR? If not, it could be that your Platform has been set up to need to be sysgened first.
