A Windows 10 IoT core image is now available for the Raspberry Pi2 ARM board, when Windows 10 IoT core is running you can establish an HTTP connection to access the Web Manager and see the configuration and activity on the board.
Slight change in CELOADER v1.3.0: new algorithm to handle the TFTP ACK receive delay.
CELOADER v1.2.0 sometimes freezes during the transfer because TFTP packet are lost, version v1.3.0 solves this problem by re-transmitting faulty TFTP packets.
Win32 on Galileo is smaller than the Desktop Win32, here is a quick technique to find if a Win32 function is available on Galileo.
In December 2013, DMP released new platforms based on the Vortex86 architecture and compatible with the well known Arduino programming model. I ordered one of these platforms and made my first tests during the week end.
I’m now using CEloader since a year and I have a collection of binary files in my CEloader folder… time for some automation !!
In order to be able to script the tool - in BAT files for example - I added the name of the BIN to be downloaded as first argument. The target ID is now moved as the second argument.
No argument parsing (yet), if you want to filter on a target name you need to give the image file name first (it may be NK.bin).
The update (binary and source code) is on the celoader project on codeplex.
The ceolader tool now releases NK.bin after TFTP
CEloader v1.0.1 had a limitation at 32MB, the new version v1.1.1 overcomes this limitation.
I'm often giving Windows CE trainings using the same set of eBoxes, one of my concerns is preparing the boot configuration for each eBox in order to fulfill the course requirements. I'm now using a PXE-like solution using EBOOT on the eBox and and a dedicated TFTP loader on the workstation: CELOADER.
My mobile phone was an old 4 years old Wimo 5.0 and I had to change it. As Phone7 was made available last week in France I got a brand new LG once they were available in stores. Here are my first impressions:
OS version: 7.0.7004.0 (yes wer'e on embedded101)
This definitely is a "cloud" terminal, I got my face on the screen from the minute I entered my Windows live ID, in the store...
This is such a "cloud" terminal that it does not even synchronize with Outlook, I had to push all my contacts to my Live account, and my agenda is still "in the middle of nowhere". I'm really surprised because I saw "Outlook hubs" in the review videos, do they use EMEA as a field test, like "let's see what happends when they can't synchronize..." (YES I was angry, almost brought back the phone to the store, lucky it was closed at night).
The experience with the touch interface is awesome, Phone7 really is what I expected from my Zune HD experience (add a phone, wireless and a camera). Same impression with t ...
Re: Windows Phone 7 first impressions
Yes, I was referring to local Outlook synchronization. Exchange Server synching is definitely provided...

The lack of Outlook synchronization is indeed surprising. I am assuming you were expecting synchronization...
