Velma And Windows Mobile

There has been a new arrival in the stable of bicycles at the Wilson household. How and why I acquired this new bike (more correctly described as a tricycle, or trike to sound more adult) is a story for another time, but suffice it to say that it involved a friend of many years who is something of a semi-professional bicycle racer. I will be forever grateful to him for making this bike, oops, trike, available to me. As I see it, one of the great things about trikes are their potential for being "geeked out". This kind of thing is also possible with regular bicycles, but the extra weight seems more noticeable on two wheels, and there are fewer places to mount the gadgets. Which brings me to the reason for this post, to recount my experience using a Windows Mobile device as a bicycle computer. Before we begin, let me introduce you to Velma (the name of the new trike). Velma is a recumbent bike, so the pedals are in frot while my torso reclines in a comfortable seat, far easier to cope with on long rides tha ...

Platform Builder: makeimg: FATAL ERROR: Out of buffer space

It seems that PB (CE 6 in VS 2005) doesn’t like long path names.

I’ve come across this before.

It builds OK but then fails over in makeimage as above.

C:\WINCE600\OSDesigns\LPC3250-DK_BIN  with solution file in this directory worked OK.

C:\WINCE600\3rdparty\PhyCore_LPC3250_BSP_EVAL_V1_0_3_Prerelease\OSDesigns\LPC3250-DK_BIN  fails as above

I seem to remember that spaces can cause problems too.

It seems a path length issue here.

Windows CE 6: Networking Device Emulator on Win7

It says that you need VPC 2007 when you try to enable networking with the Arm emulator.  But Win 7 has a later VPC.
But when installed (Win 7 version) the required networking isn’t installed.

This article seems to resolve the issue:
