Windows CE/mobile 6 RIL development RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    How do i develop RIL driver for my own modem?

    I've installled VS 2005, Windows CE 6 and platform builder. But there is no development environment for windows mobile. Is there a way to create OS image with modified for windows mobile 6 using platform builder?


    Should i need license from Microsoft to do so?

  • Hello,


    I think your issue should be raised in the Windows Embedded Compact Platform Development. I believe they will know more information of this issue than us, and I will move this one to that forum.


    Thanks for your understanding,


    Best regards,

  • Gugan, you've asked this question on several forums about Windows Phone, Windows Embedded CE and Windows Mobile but the answer is basically the same: Windows Mobile and Windows Phone 7, although both based on Windows CE, are marketed by MSFT in a different way; the development tools for customizing the OS on the specific device are reserved only to a few OEM's/partners who sell thousand devices.

    You say that you want to develop a RIL driver for a modem that you need to integrate in Windows Phone 7: why? And how would you practically do it?

    I mean: WP7 devices includes a modem by design, does your modem brings some specific feature that is not supported by WP7 devices? For example I have a WP7 LG Optimus 7 which has a modem supporting GSM 850; GSM 900; GSM 1800; GSM 1900; HSDPA 7.2; HSUPA 5.6; UMTS 850; UMTS 1900; UMTS 2100.

    Suppose your modem has something 'special', how would I connect your modem to my phone? Bluetooth?
