    Hello,

    Is there any "autorun" mechanism when inserting a SD Card ?

    I would like to launch an application when a card is
    inserted in the Pocket pc ...

    Any information about that ?

    thanks,

    PJ

  2. create an autorun.inf file with the following syntax:
    [AutoRun]
    open=program.exe

    Simply replace program.exe with the file/program you want to autorun. Place
    this autorun.inf file in the root of the sd card.

  3. It can be done by placing an exe called Autorun in a processor specific
    folder on the card - e.g. 2577 for ARM based devices. It is probably not
    advisable to write this application in .NETCF in case the card is inserted
    in a device without the framework present as it will result in an error.

  5. You should be able to use th '\0' directory as well, which is for all
    processors.

    Thanks a lot everybody ...
    It works with PPC2003 Ipaq 1930.
    One thing : It does not work with a directory named "2410"
    which is the CPU type, but 2577.

    I does not seem to work with autorun.inf ...

    Thanks,
    Paul J.

  7. IPaq has an ARM CPU, which is 2577
