This article provides an overview of the installation of Windows
Media Player on the Handheld PC.
There are two versions of Media Player available to download from
the CESD download centre.
wmnM3K.exe is a MIPS 3000 specific build of Windows Media
Player. For use on devices such as the MIPS 3900 based Sharp Telios.
WMNAll.exe provides binaries for SH3, MIPS 4000, ARM and
SH4 - Currently there is no SH4 build of Windows Media Player
To ascertain which version you need
- Tap Start then Settings and open the Control
- Double tap the System applet icon
- Select the Device tab, the CPU type is listed next to Processor Type
Once you know which version is required, download the file to your
computer and double click the .exe. Windows Media Player 1.2 will
be installed through Microsoft ActiveSync.
During the installation on the Handheld PC, the installer will ask you whether
you wish to overwrite the file ATADISK.dll on your device.
The updated ATADISK.dll file is part of the Digital Rights Management (DRM)
of Windows Media Player. We recommend that you only agree to replace the file
is you are using Windows Media Player 7.0 or 7.1 on your Host PC. If you are
using a different version (6.4, 8, 9 or 10) HPC:Factor recommends that you do
not allow the file copy as the dll has been know to cause major problems with
the use of some CF storage cards.
