C:Amie & Jake........

For Windows Installation go to https://github/tenox7/wrp/releases and download the wrp-386-windows.exe file ( or the wrp-amd64-windows.exe for 64 bit systems) That's All!

Open the download folder click on the file-name.exe and it runs in large screen mode... right there. (One caveat: server side requires Google Chrome browser)

I suggest you move it to a new WRP folder, right click on it and create a shortcut there==> right click on the shortcut and select properties==>on the first line / text box that ends with .exe add -g 640x2500x256 for J720 screen with 256 color, add -l :port if wish different port, apply, save. ==> click and it runs with your screen size.===>

Now, on the J720 open PIE4 and enter http://windows.ip.address:8080==>>you see a browser within PIE browser with box for URL and webpage size and small text box... which I used to paste this post into....

For auto-start just place a shortcut in the windows startup folder by pressing "win-key + R"==>run box type "shell:startup"==> startup folder appears... just paste shortcut. It should run after logging on....

Of course there are more Tips and Tricks...==> basically just download the "****.exe" and it runs right there in the download folder:.. no unzipping needed. Nada mas, hombres!

I posted this using WRP but then used my Windows 10 laptop to edit and change line spacing... which is an issue with WRP text I've yet to master.

Here are a few screenshots of WRP proxy on RasPi4 wirelessly connected to the J720 with NE2000 ethernet card short tethered to ethernet2wifi adapter (secure WPA2, faster, less power consumption).

I had a quick look at it. It actually can run using Brave or Edge, so Chrome isn't technically needed. The current build it just hard coded to use Chrome.

I've submitted a suggestion that they change that behaviour: https://github.com/tenox7/wrp/issues/96

If they agree, it would mean that it'll "just work" on any Windows install that ships with Edge, no other dependencies required.

I also had a stab at making a more logical menu bar. This in intended for 640x240 devices. Copy it into a wrp.html file and pop it next to the WRP exe file, then exit and restart WRP. I've not tested it on CE, so it may need some finer tweaking, but should making inputting text a bit easier.

C:Amie: Hey, great job on the custom Menu! Very nice layout and I was quickly able to expand the text entry box to 40 characters...........................The scrolling worked better on the previous setup...the new one requires a page refresh for each J720 screen height....so I commented out your page dimension and used the -g 630x2500x250 option in the shortcut command line.In less than 7 seconds from my windows laptop the stock J720 with 32Mb will load the equivalent of 13 page lengths easily scrolled by pressing the space bar...snappy on stock J720 with NE2000 ethernet card/secure eth2wifi adapter/PIE4................................................Fantastic work on your part... opens up things for all kinds of tinkering.I think I would just go with 256 colors and add height and width to menus... some pages need it so you can resize it on the fly, etc....glad to know we're not tied to chrome too............can't get line spacing working right so using ".............." until and if....Thanks for your input/effort. This is so cool to be posting via WinCE!

Now I get it... line spacing hit "Rt" as in carriage return!

This is being posted on a MobilePro 800 using an NE2000 ethernet card connected to a small ethernet to wifi adapter... so it's a secure wireless wpa2 setup. These MobilePro keyboards are simply delicious to type on... almost never and error, and so unlike the many errors I seem to earn on the Jornada 720. Anyone else agree... yes, Size matters

I'm trying to figure out how to enter text using the WRP-proxy which is a borwser windo within the , in this case, the extremely antiquated PIE3 browser... it is so bad that it won't render the simple Google search page... nada... just a blank page whereas the J729 PIE4 shows it nicely and even lets you view small images in http mode. I thought these HPC's were DOA, but here I am viewing the great and wonderful HPCFactor website and it is looking good!Seems I did make a few typos... what the heck is a J729? some kinda of airplane, I guess it should be a J720 afterall. Now let's if I can avoid overwriting my previous post... I'm having a bit of trouble with that issue. I subjected myself to the Covid Booster 2 days ago and so the HPC's kept me distracted while I was feeling rather yucky and sore all over especially yesterday... finally feeling better today and went out for a fancy lunch at a nice restaurant. All for now... let's see if I'm getting better at this!

I'm back on the J720 here... trying out the 64 bit version of WRP on Windows... and it seems faster so I'm in the -g 640x0x256 mode where '0' means it will snapshot the entire web page, many J720 screen sizes long. I will count them ==> 47 screens long on this entire thread and entire webpage. Long web pages gum up the works and won't render giving a blank page, so more reliable to use -g 640x2500x256 IMO.

Don't comment the dimensions out, edit them to the values that you think work best and post the file code back for others!

C:Amie: It's difficult to explain unless you can see and compare the effect. as I mentioned some large webpages would take 47 refreshes to reach the bottom and there are 2 adjacent scroll bars... bit of a nightmare really, but I will look to see if there is a convenience.... maybe just setting page width and not height. for this thread it takes 3 refreshes to reach this reply box with page height set 2200... about 10x your setting... and would require 10 refreshes... so maybe I will tweak your size parameters and see, but 220 or so is onerous. There is a trade off with increased page height, takes longer to load but requires much fewer refreshes and vice versa. I'm still figurung things out... seems that color depth doesn't matter much for J720, but maybe for slow cpu MP800. That's the parameter I would lock down to 256 bit. The -g 640x2200x256 is a compromise for J720 but -g 780x2800x256 works better for MP800, both being set on shortcut as .exe parameters.The most convenient setting for height is "0" as it will scroll the full webpage in one refresh : -g 640x0x256 but not uncommonly overruns the buffer and you lose the page and have to start over--- also onerous. So there is probably some sweet spot to be determined.......... Joval on J720/WinCE/ethernet2wifi/PIE4

Another thing everything you enter in the text box gets displayed on the server in terminal box... so no privacy that way. Also, if you use different port setting you should be able to have the server run multiple WRP session with settings for different HPC screen sizes, etc. Let's see if this comment will paste in the right place


The 64k color option does render pages faster than 256k as expected so color depth should be kept as an option afterall.

Several WRP proxy servers running simultaneously on Window 10 laptop... each must use a different port ( using -l :port# option). The J720 can log onto each separately in a different PIE4 window so you can surf different sites simultateously .

I'd lose the footer completely as it doesn't serve any real purpose. But do post the HTML code for your layout for others
