IE internet browsing problem in Windows Mobile

IE internet browsing problem in Windows Mobile:


1.Even though I configured the proxy server and USB setting as Turbo Mode.

I am not able to open any web pages in a mobile.



I have opened Active Sync's connection Settings in PC and selected the automatic from the list of options in combo box.

The computer is connected to:


Work Network


it was "Work Network" previously. I modified it to the "Automatic" in a PC then the web pages are able to open in IE.

WinCE Deployment error Deployment and/or registration failed with error

WinCE Deployment error:


Deployment and/or registration failed with error: 0x8973190e. Error writing file '\Program Files\VideoRenderer.dll'. Error 0x80450001: (null)

========== Build: 0 succeeded, 0 failed, 3 up-to-date, 0 skipped ==========

========== Deploy: 2 succeeded, 1 failed, 0 skipped ==========

This is due to I have deployed the DLL in Windows folder But the mobile is not allowing to deploy...

So I prepared the cab ( will have the DLL) and install it in mobile.

But it is also not working...

  The problem is Bulverde device shown error as the Problem occurred in tmarshaller.exe file.



Previously I got the same error when Codec DLL is missing in the Codec Filter.

if I deployed it, then I got the error...


I have opened the file

using fopen() fn in Constructor of a video renderer... It causes the problem.

if I opened the file in SetMediaType() fn I didnt get any errors...

So Beware of Fopen() calls...



I have declared the public variable in CVideoRenderer and opened the fopen("\\My Documents\\test.log"); in the CVideoRenderer's constructor...

CVideoRenderer's constructor will be called in the CreateInstance of IUnknown implementation of a filter...


This is the General problem to any COM DLL.

 Windows mobile is a general term for Windows OS that are used in handheld devices.

For Example Windows OS is a general term... Under this category we are having different flavors like Windows 98,windows XP,

Windows NT and so on.

Windows Mobile  operating system for handhelds:

 1.Pocket PC Edition
 2.Pocket PC Phone Edition, and
 3.Smartphone Edition

Pocket PC Edition:
 Stand-alone PDAs, such as the Dell Axim X51 series and the HP iPaq rx1950, use Pocket PC Edition and come with the

full Mobile Office suite, including Word Mobile, Excel Mobile,and PowerPoint Mobile. These handhelds typically have

240x320-pixel touch screens, can feature wireless connectivity, and are best for those who want a palm-size device to

organize vital information with the option to work on the go and surf the Web.
 ( it is like a handheld PC )

Pocket PC Phone Edition:
 Devices that run Pocket PC Phone Edition are similar to Pocket PC PDAs in shape and size (including the touch-screen

functionality), with the full suite of office apps, but they add cellular-wireless capabilities so that you can make phone

calls. These all-in-one mobiles are good for power users who need the full functionality of being able to work and stay

connected on the road. Examples of Pocket PC phones are the Palm Treo 700w.

 Windows Mobile  Smartphone Edition offers the biggest difference of the three versions. First, the mobiles are

smaller, resembling cell phones, and they generally feature 320x240-pixel displays that aren't touch sensitive. Instead, you

navigate via soft keys and a joystick. Also, while you get all the calendar and contact tools, you don't get the entire

Office Mobile suite, just Outlook Mobile; third-party apps, such as Westtek's ClearVue Suite, are available so that you can

view work documents. These types of smart phones are perfect for users who want the phone form factor but also want to stay

up-to-date and be more productive on the road.


Major Difference between Smartphone  and Pocket PC:

 SmartPhone is a low cost solution compare to Pocket PC.

Touch screen facility available in Pocket PC.Smartphone will not have touch screen facility.we have to navigate via softkeys or joystick.

 That is it...
