    Hello,


    I received today a board from a customer where the CAN bus doesn't work any more.
    While looking at the debug output I get always the message: "CID: ISR still active !"
    What does this mean exactly? What is ISR?
    Hope there is no hardware defect?



    Thanks a lot, Kaiser

    Hello,


    is it possible to show the "IP information" window (see in the taskbar the network icon) of WinCE directly of my program?
    I can show Date/Time/Timezone with "ctlpnl.exe cplmain.cpl,13" but I haven't found a possibility to start the "IP information" window.
    Thanks a lot in advance.



    Best regards,

    Hello,


    Is it possible to hide the taskbar after reboot/autostart an application?
    I have deactivated the option "Always on top".
    But when I restart the board, my application is started and shown on the whole screen. Unfortunately the taskbar is in the froeground. Only after opening a window of my application the taskbar will be hidden behind my application. When I finish my application and start it again without reboot, this problem disappeared. Is there a function or something else to hide the taskbar?


    Thanks a lot in advance,

    Hello,


    After start ndcucfg and execution of reboot sometimes the board does not start correctly and hangs. I think it is the point of your kernel roadmap of NetDCU11?
    Maybe I have a hint. I had the same problem on NetDCU6.
    Mr. Martin Kiepfer told me: "Das Problem ist vermutlich auf einen noch laufenden DMA zurück zu führen. In dem neuen Kernel werden bei einem Reboot zur Sicherheit alle vorhandenen DMA-Channels abgeschaltet."
    Hope it's the same problem and you can solve the problem?
    Would be nice because I need this feature as soon as possible.

    So what is the need to unplug the cable while the update programm is running?

    Ther is no need to do something like that. It was just an "accident".
    But you don't know what customers do!
    I just wanted to inform about that problem and maybe find a solution.
    When an acces on big sticks takes a long time it is not absurd to remove the USB stick.

    Is this the debug trace you expected?

    Code
    1. +WriteRegistryToOEM
    2. WriteRegistryToOEM: writing registry 2
    3. Erase Registry................................
    4. -WriteRegistryToOEM
    5. Exception 002 Thread=81c58df0 Proc=a1c58a82
    6. AKY=00000201 PC=8003e24c RA=8003e324 BVA=1401a00c
    7. Process 'Update.exe'
    8. Exception 002 Thread=81c58df0 Proc=a1c58a82

    10. Process 'Update.exe'

    Have your already tested this with another USB stick?
    Is there also a script file available on the USB stick? If yes please post it here.


    I tried an hama 2GByte USB stick - and it is recognized by the NetDCU6.
    I can change to "hard disk" with cd command. But when I start the dir command, it takes several minutes until I get the result!!
    This happens only for the first call of dir. After second call of dir I get the reult immediately.
    Best results I get with very small sticks (256MB) but they are unfortunately no more available to buy.


    I don't think it is a script problem. Everything works fine when stick is not removed.

    The error happens only when I plug in the stick and remove it again quickly (before the update window is visible).
    When I let in in for a few seconds, the update window appears and Update.exe is executed correctly, even if I remove the usb stick.
    Maybe this is a system problem?


    How can I detect the version? In properties there is no version.
    It's generated on 7. 7. 2009
    changed on 26. 3. 2009
    Size is 22.016 Bytes and 22.528 Bytes on usb stick.
    It's in \NetDCU6 folder on the usb stick.
    How to create a complete debug trace?


    Also a problem could be the size of an usb stick. When it ist larger, it needs more time to detect an USB stick.

    Hello,


    maybe there is a bug in application Update.exe?
    When I start display on NetDCU6 and with reg parameter Launch100 = CheckAutoStart.exe,
    the USB listener is activated. When I plug an USB stick in and after one scond out, I get an
    "Fatal Application Error".

    Code
    1. Program: Update.exe
    2. Exception: 0xC0000005
    3. Address: 8003E24C


    Maybe you can reproduce that?
    Is that an system tool or from F&S?


    Best regards

    Hello,


    after a complete new install board now starts again. A new kernel flash was not enough. Just after the bootloader options C, N, P, DE the system started again. Don't know why. Byt the way, maybe I found a bug? During installation I had following output:


    Maybe the new bad block caused the problem?
    Anyway - now the suspend entry in start menu is disabled. I don't need it anyway.

    Hello,


    yes I can step into the bootloader.
    All settings seems to be fine.
    here are the outputs:



    Should I try to flash a new kernel? Or first reset the settings, and if yes which one?
    Maybe the registry is enough?

    Hello together,


    through an oversight I have pressed the suspend entry in the start menu. The display become black and nothing worked.
    After switch off an on again the display still stays black. I can't start Wince again.
    The last entry in bootloader is:

    Kernel read from flash disk started finished in 11000 milliseconds
    Kernel read from NAND
    INFO: OEMLaunch: Jumping to Physical Address 0xA01084D4h (Virtual Address 0x0h)...


    How to start WinCE again?


    Thanks a lot in advance...

    Hello,


    I have changed on my hardware the board (from NetDCU6 to NetDCU11). Now I have detectet different behavior on touch-panel.
    On NetDCU6 the touch was more sensitive than on NetDCU11. On NetDCU11 I have to press much stronger to execute something like a button...
    Are there some settings in registry or somewhere else to change behavior of touch? Or what else could be there a problem?


    Thanks a lot in advance,

    Hello,


    I would like to show help from my application. What is the best way?
    I have found some help for the tool "peghelp.exe" but this is not installed.
    Is it better to start internet explorer to show html help?


    Thanks a lot, Kaiser

    Hello,


    is there a possibility to show a simple text message on display (WinCE 4.2) when I am logged in over telnet on a console?
    For example I would like to inform shortly user on display that action by me has finished and he can continue work. Just a small text message in a window would be enough.


    If there are no system tools - how to program it by myself? I wrote a console tool with a simple call of MessageBox(xxx) but that's modal. A non modal solution would be better. Any ideas?


    Thanks a lot and best regards,

    Hello together,


    is there a convenient way to start a file from USB automatically?
    Is there a finished solution I can use or do I have to program a tool, register it in the registry-autostart mechanism and wait for "USB-In" event?
    Are there other, better solutions?


    Thanks a lot in advance,

    Hallo,


    ich habe ein ähnliches Problem mit der Systemfunktion zum Reboot, allerdings auf einem F3S Kernel (Version 2.03). Rufe ich die Funktion

    Code
    1. KernelIoControl(
    2. IOCTL_HAL_REBOOT,
    3. NULL,
    4. 0,
    5. NULL,
    6. 0,
    7. NULL);


    auf, erhalte ich im darauffolgenden Neustart folgende Ausgabe:



    Anschließend tut sich nichts mehr. Erst nach einem Neustart wird wieder regulär gebootet.
    Weiß jemand Rat?

    Hello,


    is there a VNC Server for this board available?
    I remember I read long time ago something about VNC but could not find any more?
    Would be nice to control the display via vnc client on a desktop pc.
    Are there other solutions? The ZoomIn tool is ok, but not supproting any actions to change the current view.


    Thanks a lot in advance
