HI!
I am currently transforming a set top box with CE 5.0 MIPS to an office computer; therefore I need a proper word processor. I have tried extracting PocketWord from an old ROM image, but that didn't work, it just showed the hourglass symbol for a split second. Does anybody know how to solve that? Maybe hex editing?
I really appreciate any answers
Thanks!

Haven't seen a MIPS version of Pocket Office that works yet.

However, you can download the trial version of Textmaker for MIPS from the download center...it is time limited to like a month, but then you can reinstall it again and again I believe...

Thanks; I never knew that there was a MIPS version! A useful thing about non-persistent devices is that you can use trial software forever

I assume you extracted office.dll as well. If so, you might still need the same registry keys found in cmonex' H/PC Pocket Office pack for ARM to get it to work (since clearly the registry keys aren't processor-specific). Can you upload it somewhere so one of us (actually probably me since I'm the only other one I know of here with a CE 5 MIPS device ) can check it out?

Do you mean the Pocket Word files I extracted from that ROM image? Here you go http://www.mediafire.com/download/9fx1ycqqqr5y8d4/PWORD_MIPS.zip
I'm just having a little trouble importing those .reg files; do you know of a MIPS registry editor with that function?

You can get Tascal Registry Editor here:

http://www.hpcfactor.com/scl/details.asp?id=28

However, I recalled incorrectly that the keys affected Pocket Word, having posted from memory before checking the package itself. (Note to self: CE Geek needs more RAM.) I tried the package in my Viliv X5, and it wouldn't open there. (Not even a brief hourglass.) Checking the files in a hexeditor didn't reveal any dependencies other than ole32.dll, commctrl.dll, and commdlg.dll, all of which are present on the X5. But when I tried it in my other MIPS CE 5 device (Cowon P5), it opened immediately. So I checked the two device's registries under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Microsoft, and found that both devices had a subkey Pocket Word, while only the Cowon had another subkey called Office. Also, when I looked inside the Pocket Word subkey on both devices, I saw that the Cowon had a bunch of entries there that were not present within the same subkey on the the Viliv. So I copied both subkeys from the Cowon using Total Commander, and then copied both to the Viliv's registry (after copying the Viliv's original version of the Pocket Word key into another folder on the USB flash drive that I used to transfer the files, as a backup in case the change didn't work), and - voila! - Pocket Word opened on the Viliv.

So here are both registry keys for you to try. However, you must use Total Commander to copy these into your device's registry, because the .reg files exported in Total Commander are incompatible with those from a regular registry editor like TRE (and vice versa).
