For the BE-300/500, the H/PC 2000 version was what I had in mind in my last post. That version works best with the 240x320 portrait display, even with VB apps written for Pocket PCs. But for those one would still need to add MSCEMenuBar.dll from the Pocket PC version to make menus work in conjunction with aygshell.dll. (And even then only Dic's 22k aygshell for MIPS seems to produce working menus in conjunction with MSCEMenuBar.dll.)

I tried installing the CE2.0 on my MobilePro 790 (without replacing the .dll files) but it hung at the "Creating Registry" part so I soft reset it. tried going into \Windows and trying the pvbload prog but it just hangs.


Coming back to this as I am conscious that we need to work out which dll registration is hanging as all of those cab's will be doing it.

Attached are the HPC2000 MIPS dll's in individual cab's. Could you please let me know which cause the problem in creating registry and which do not. Thanks

I haven't been able to try it out yet, but I will soon!

Also:
thenzero found some software for me to add to the SCL, but the extension for the pocket vb is funky. (it's from an HPC Magazine demo CD)
Here's an example file name:
Do I need to rename the extension or just upload as is? It's more of Vicent Colura's PVB progs (I'll make sure I don't upload duplicates)

That's probably a typo. Some of Vincent Collura's apps have the .pvb extension on the end twice for some reason, and it's written just like that except with a 'b' at the very end (ChequeBook.pvb..pvb). Just add that last 'b' before uploading them.

I have used my Debian Terminal to print out the strings inside. Here is the screenshot of it.
I believe that proves it is indeed .pvb. I have looked in side .pvb before and it looked similar.

Stingraze: That's awesome! I didn't know you could do that. I love Debian! aha

yeah, I just used "cat" command.
I think sometimes a command called "strings" is useful to see what kind of strings are in a binary etc., but it wasn't useful for this.

They all worked when I did it this way, but I did a "dirty" install, wherein I just overwrote everything-- but all cabs completed successfully. (If you prefer I can hard reset my 790 and try them all again! It's no trouble)
Now I went into \Windows and double tapped pvb.exe, but it keeps hanging with hourglass
Is there a further step to actually get a .pvb file to work?

Check the registry under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT. I've found that sometimes the registry entries don't come out the way they're supposed to:

It's also important that no eMbedded Visual Basic for 2.11/3.0 components are preinstalled on the 790. While you're in HKCR, check to make sure there isn't a key for .vb.
