WM6 & WM6.5 - Internet Explorer has no Progress Bar for pasp:// RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've noticed that the progress bar that says "Connecting..." with the pin wheel animation is missing when I visit pages that have an address that starts with pasp://

    Visiting addresses that start with one of these display the "Connecting..." progress bar:


    I had a progress bar pulling up pasp:// pages in Windows Mobile 5 and Pocket PC 2003. 

    Is there a way enable Internet Explorer on Windows Mobile 6.1 or 6.5 to display the progress bar again when pulling up pasp:// pages?  Maybe a registry tweak?

    This is important to me because without the progress bar, there is no indication that the browser is doing anything.

    Thanks for any help!

  • PASP is for a local web server on the handheld.

    The best test would be to download this to a WM6.x device, then try to access the local page.  You'll notice that there is no progress bar when visiting pasp://yourSite/page.asp


    I really appreciate this, I'm hoping to find a registry key I can tweak to bring back the progress bar. :)
