I am looking for a way to allow a user to rename a device id while is running a script after booting. The scenario would be for the device to be locked up and if a user does a cold boot, when a script run, it would prompt for user to rename/name device id before fully installs and it does a warm boot...
PS. The device that i am using is a PSION G2
This will help, thanks for taking the time to help me out on this issue.
What is the exact device model and OS type?
PSION Workabout Pro G2 and WM 6 Classic
Good morning Mouchel,
As you may already know, a cold reset in Windows Mobile is identical to a warm reset, except some low level hardware (PCon) is also restarted before the operating system boots.
Therefore, can you please re-iterate what you are hoping to achieve?
If a user hard resets a device, i have a script that runs automatically and installs cabs files. When all this takes place, my script ends with a warm boot, so the device will reset. After reseting, i have a software that locks down the device, so a user cannot do any damage however if a cold boot takes place, the unique device id gets reset to the default value... because i have more devices, i don't want to write diferent scripts for each device.
So what i am looking achieve is the following:
While my script is running, before it run a warm boot (to reset the device and lock it down) i want for a pop up box to enable the user to name the unique device id.
For your information, the device's name is stored in the registry
[HKLM\Ident]"Name" REG_SZ "WORKABOUTPRO"
Additionally, let me bring this « Programmatically changing the Device Name » thread to your attention, in case it helps / inspires you.
