[Solved] Can't run .NET Compact Framework application

Tue Feb 08, 2011 4:55 pm


I have a problem with running .NET Compact Framework 2.0 (.NET CF 2.0) applications on my customized AT91SAM9260 board.

I have included .NET CF 2.0 catalog items in Platform Builder (SYSGEN_DOTNETV2, SYSGEN_DOTNETV2_SR, SYSGEN_DOTNETV2_SUPPORT) and I have done "Clean Sysgen".

When I run a managed console application through telnet connection it finishes immediately without any regular or error output (even when the application contains Console.WriteLine("abc"); statement).

When I run a managed form-based application through remote desktop connection (cerdisp.exe), I can't see any window being open.

When I try to debug a managed console application (.NET CF 2.0) using Visual Studio 2005 (either through USB ActiveSync or ethernet connection), I am getting this error message box in Visual Studio IDE:

Unable to start program '%CSIDL_PROGRAM_FILES%\ConsoleApplication1\ConsoleApplication1.exe'.
Operation not supported. Unknown error 0x80000000

Has anyone of you ever had such problem? And if so, do you know a solution?

Thank you.

I have worked it out finally.

In my OAL code in IoControl() function I had IOCTL_HAL_GET_DEVICE_INFO case in switch statement commented out.

After uncommenting this case, Compact Framework applications started to work.

Return to “WinCE”
