Windows Mobile

Startbeitrag von Ericus am 07.12.2014 16:32


I want to develop an application to run on an Intermec CK3X handheld barcode scanner.

The documentation of the scanner says it is 'Microsoft® Windows Embedded Handheld built on Windows 6.5.3 technology with Intermec HTML5'

Can I use either Windev 18 or Windev 18 Mobile for this platform?

I then use Webservices to communicate via the Wifi with the data on the webserver.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Ericus

according to pcsoft web site, windev mobile works on handhelds of that type (WINDOWS MOBILE 5, 6.X, EMBEDDED COMPACT, CE 4.5 ET 6.X), butthe best way to be sure is to ask them.

Best regards

Hi Ericus,

I developed an app which is running on Pidion Devices using Windev Mobile.
According to the help Windev should work on the devices Fabrice mentioned, but I had major problems on devices using windows mobile prior to 6.1.

First I installed my App on devices Windows Mobile 5 which worked good.
Later I added new features to this App (Webservices) and it stopped working mentioning an internal error "not enough storage to complete this operation".
After some eMails with Tech Support PC soft commited, that the framework of Windev is to huge to be managed by WinMobile 5.x.
In WinMobile 6.1 and later Microsoft changed the way WinMobile handels the memory, and the App worked fine.
You can test this behavior on checking "load all DLL while starting" when compiling the App.
Such an App would not work on systems smaller than WinMobile 6.1.

Best Regards
