Automatic launch of WinCE application in the OS start-up RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've built a WinCE 6.0 and transferred the application to my device via Flush Disk.

    Normally, I have to double-click on my application to run it on the device.  Is there a way that I can have my application auto-launch on device?

    Note: I don't have the OS Design project.

  • When you say "I've built a WinCE 6.0", what do you mean?

    Take a look at:

  • Ah sorry it is a typo mistake. I would say that I've built a WinCE 6.0 C# application that includes a C++ DLL. (My application contains a .exe and .dll files).

    I cannot add the DLL file into \Windows\Startup because it will be runned as an application and this will generates an error.

    Is it correct to add the DLL file into \Windows and the EXE file into \Windows\Startup ?

  • This is a case where you should just try it.  If you had you would have found that contrary to your statement no error would occur when you put your DLL in the \Windows\Startup folder.

    You would also find that putting the DLL in \Windows would also work.

    But with both of those answers, you will find that they only work if your \Windows folder persists files when the system is shut off.
