View Full Version : Will old ePod run NetRemote?
June 26th, 2003, 12:37 PM
I have a couple of old ePods that I have just figured out to use WEP with and would like to consider their use for netRemote. They use a MIPS R4000 processor and run WinCE 2.12.
When I try to install the latest download of netRemote for winCE MIPS (on ePod I have to copy CAB file to epod and run from there due to poor activesync client support) I get the warning that "the program I'm installing is not designed to run on this machine" and when I click to continue anyway it installs. When I try to run I get the warning "Cannot Find NetRemote (Or One of it's components...................)"
Has anyone been able to get netRemote to run on an ePod?
Any suggestions please?

OK, it's been a couple of days now and no one seems to have responded?
BTW, I have tried the search function to find the answer myself without any luck.
I still am confused by the listing in the download section that lists the file I downloaded as a MIPS winCE application but when I install the CAB file it has a pocketPC2000.MIPS name.
I don't think my ePod (MIPS R4000 processor and running WinCE 2.12) will run anything built for a pocketPC :(
Does winCE 2.12 come in 2 versions a winCE version and a pocketPC version?
Aaron makes a reference to running netRemote on a winCE 2.12 machine in another post (doesn't mention on what platform) so it appears someone may have gotten it to work.

Yes, I'm using ePods1 but not with Netremote... yet.
I cannot get it to run on the ePods1. Hopefully Ben will fix that soon.
Currently I'm running it on a PC and using Terminal Services on the ePods1 to "see" back and use NR. It sucks becasue the colors get cut from 256 color to 16 color using the TS client on WinCE 2.12

Is the epods a pocket pc or a handheld PC? Is the screen 240x320 like a pocket pc?
Unfortunately I only have an SDK for WinCE 3 and above (PPC2k and PPC2k2) and am unsure how I would build for less than WinCE 3.
Thanks for the heads up, Joe. I have changed the wording to say "PPC2000" instead of "WinCE" on the download page.
I'll certainly try, but I can't promise support for anything less than WinCE 3.

The ePods1 is a 640x480, 256 color touchscreen. Runs WinCE 2.12.
I'm wondering if the WinCE 3 SDK will allow you to compile for WinCE 2.12?
here's the docs on the 3.0 SDk but I could not find anything that talked about compiling for CE 2.1...

I'd also be interested in getting it to run on CE 2.12 / MIPS. I have a vadem clio with similar specs. 640x480 16bit color touchscreen.
anyways, i tried the PPC2000.MIPS version, didn't run. went and got the MFCCE300.DLL, aygshell.dll, and doclist.dll files for this architecture. still no go. i guess its a matter of trying to run a CE3 binary on a CE2 device.
But netremote looks great. looking forward to trying it out

Unfortunately I took a look at this previously, and I cannot build for anything before CE 3.0 with any of the compilers I have.
I wonder if it was only supported as part of Visual Studio before eVC came out?

I have a Casio E105 running WinCE ver 2.11 using a MIPS R4000 processor.
I found this link on Microsofts site I'm not sure if it helps
If I can get my hands on a compiler would you provide a source code so I could compile it for WinCE 2.11.

Iknow you got your hands full with ver 0.995rc3 but I got some info on how to compile for WinCE 2.11
Get the Microsoft embeded Tools v3.00 free download from M$
then get the Palm-size PC1.2 SDK
Once installed open up embeded C++ v3.00 and select WinCE 2.11 as the platform
I'm not much of a programer but see if this helps in any way

Thanks for the info, Laz.
I'm worried about the difficulties in supporting something even -older- than PPC2000, and what methods may not be supported.
