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.

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 ...
I'm opening this new blog today to post technical articles on Windows Embedded. I already participate to the embedded101 website where I write articles or translate existing articles in French. The French articles section is under re-organisation and will be available soon, I'll provide the link in a further post.
