Hive based registry for Windows CE 7 on Virtual PC? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can anybody explain (or post a working OS design) how to configure a hive based registry for Windows CE 7 on Virtual PC? I'm creating OS images that boot from VHDs that are similar to those that DiskPrep creates (http://archive.msdn.microsoft.com/DiskPrep).

    Now I'd like to have a hive based registry that is saved to the VHD as well, since this would greatly simplify certain testing/development tasks. Has anybody something like that gotten to work?

  • Enable hive based registry under catlog file and de select ram based registry


    Also verify following settings ...

        "Start DevMgr"=dword:1

  • Since the  VHD is treated as normal ATA Hard Drive in VirtualPC, so you can enable the hive-based registry by
    set PRJ_ENABLE_FSREGHIVE=1 (for detail, trace the public\COMMON\oak\files\common.reg for the setting enabled by PRJ_ENABLE_FSREGHIVE flag) and http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee479112(WinEmbedded.70).aspx
    Also the "Start DevMgr" has been deprecated and replaced by [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\init\BootVars\Init]
