Installing an application on wince 6 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

     

    I am installing an application "Pocket Controller" to my wince device having hive based registry enabled.

    When i install it installs correctly but when i switch off and on the device the application does not exist.

    If i try to reinstall the application it doesnt allow as the entries exists on hive registry.

     

    I guess it installs on RAM location due to which it does not persists after device reboot. \

     

    How can make this application to install on secondry media so that once installed should remain.

     

    Regards,

    Misbah

  • I think you have selected RAM and ROM based file system with hive based registry. if this is the case, you can expect this issue.

    Why don't you select ROM only file system with hive based registry. Here Object store will be in your persistent storage

  • Hi Vinoth,

    Thanks for the reply !

     

    Can you tell me which registry setting will change the "RAM and ROM based file system " to "ROM only" file system for object store.

  • you have to change the catalog item components. Use SYSGEN_FSROMONLY instead of SYSGEN_FSRAMROM

    See this blog

  • Select ROM only file system with Hive based reg setting as suggested above.

     

    Do a clean sysgen as suggested.

     

    Hope it should work.

     

    good luck!

  • Perform a debug build and capture the log...

    This will help to understand if something is not working and giving error.

     

    Is the system is frozen after it boots ? Or you are able to work with the system except desktop items are not appearing.
