  • Question

  • I'm trying to find if is possible to set the timezone on windows CE 7.0 remotely, from another windows machine potentially using a powershell script.

  • A very confusing post... The title says Compact 2013, but your message states CE 6.0?

    Anyway, to answer your question: It depends.

    It depends on the configuration of the kernel on your device whether or not you can change this remotely. It may or may not have RAPI, or any other OEM specific way to access the registry remotely.

    Are you the OEM? In other words; did you create the kernel for this device?


    Good luck,

    I wrote a series of blog posts on running an app remotely using RAPI starting with Windows CE: Using RAPI to Run Applications (Part 1)

  • Michel,

    Thank you for you reply. I made a mistake to state CE 7.0 OEM.

    I'm looking into the RAPI protocol and i can't find if is required to open TCP ports on CE to allow RAPI commands remotely.

  • Bruce,

    Thank you for the blog post, it covers very well the RAPI commands. Any thoughts on how i can implement the RAPI from a remote Windows machine to my CE device?

  • In hindsight, RAPI is probably not the way to go - back in 2009 when I wrote those yes.  But today's devices tend to be network connected.

    Probably the easiest solution would be to create a server application that listens for commands on a port.  Or maybe something even more modern using IOT technology like MQTT.
