Re: Hardware requirement for WM version

Lynn Deffenbaugh

One thing Windows Mobile developers learn is there is no such thing as "standard" Windows. APRS/CE and APRSISCE are two completely different programs by different developers. APRSISCE is built in the Windows Mobile 6 Professional SDK environment targeting the ARMV4I processor. Windows CE has no guarantee of what sections of Windows API is available or not. It is left up to the whim of the platform builder.

Is there a brand on the device or is a standard Windows CE SDK development environment available for it? If so, that will tell me what I need to conditionalize out of my program to make it work there.

My device is 5" navigation device with WinCE 6.0 OS , 600 Mhz ARM1136JF-S Processor , 128 MB Ram . Windows desktop and internet explorer works properly.
I managed to work many of pocket PC softwares on this device.
After successfully used APRS/CE ,I thought APRSISCE would work on this device as well.

Is this on the Toshiba e830 and e805 that you mentioned originally? Or
one of the other devices? If it's Pocket PC 2003, I might be able to
try building down to there, but I suspect that some of my features (like
the map display) won't be functional as that uses new features of the
Windows Mobile shell API.

WinCE 6.0 or Windows Mobile 6.0? I require Windows Mobile, not WinCE.

What is the error message you are being presented with?

Hi Lynn,

I just joined this group and tried APRSISCE program on my device
with WinCE 6.0 OS.

Unfortunately it didn't work under WinCE .
I managed to work APRS-CE without problem.

is there anything I can do to use this software under WinCE 6.0 ?

My build environment says Windows Mobile 6.1, but I know it runs on
5.0. As far as 2003, I suspect it won't work because I'm not sure the
GPSapi goes back that far.

The best I can suggest is to put the .EXE on the device and see if it
runs. If it does, you're good. If it doesn't, let me know what it
and maybe I can build a version that works around the issue.

I used to have an original Toshiba e755 before I left it in a loaner
car, the dealer recovered it, put it on a shelf, and it disappeared
before I got down to pick it up. They ended up reimbursing me for it
because they knew they had it and knew they lost it. That's what paid
for my AT&T Tilt because there were no other PDAs on the market by
time (well, there WERE PDAs available, but the Tilt with a 2 year
was cheaper and more functional).

I tried to look for the info but haven't been able to find it
(readme, release note etc).

Which Windows Mobile versions are supported? Are WM 2003 and 2003
SE supported, for example? Or only WM 5 or above?

The reason I asked is that I have an HTC Advantage x7501, a MWg
503g, both on WM 6.x right now, but I also have Toshiba e830 and e805
which are only WM 2003 SE, but I want to make good use of them as well.

Thanks and sorry if this info is easy to find, I just haven't been
able to and I tried the search as well.
