Utilize your Pharos 140 GPS

If you like to have this launcher running on your Pharos 140 GPS :


Just simply download this aloha.exe to your Pharos 140 device, copy it to \MyFlashDisk\mplayer\ directory, rename the original mplayer.exe file to mplayer1.exe, and rename aloha.exe to mplayer.exe, so this new launcher program will appear each time you press the hard button Video Player on the left side of device (VideoPlayer Button is on the middle)

and If you like to goes further by editing the source and compiling it self by your own eVC program, here is the source :







// aloha.cpp : Quick and dirty program for Application Launcher..

#include "aloha.h"

or if you indeed too lazy to type that, here is the complete project :-) .. download it from www.infoanda.com and look this site for other explanation.

Looks like my 140 does not have the MPlayer directory, nor can I find the application anywhere via an Active Sync search. Any Ideas?

Thanks,

Denis

Neat. Thanks.
any ideas around how to install tomtom 7 with maps 7.x or upgrading WinCE to 6+

I want to run Memory map from your launcher, the web site is www.memory-map.com, can you help me?

Utems said...

to Anonymous,

I can try to recompile again and make the button configurable, so you can change which application you wish to launch using this launcher, give me a week.

Anonymous said...

Did you re-compile to allow Memory Map to launch?

Anonymous said...

What program did you used to compile the source codes?

Anonymous said...

That source code can be compiled using Microsoft embeded Visual C, eVC 4.0.
Its very straight forward, download that source code in zip files, extract it to project directory, and compiled it.

Utems,
I do not have the knowledge to write or compile programs for CE, but you said "I can try to recompile again and make the button configurable, so you can change which application you wish to launch using this launcher, give me a week." Did you do that yet?

Utems said...

I am sorry, too much thing at work right now, I am not even touch my personal laptop for last 1.5 months, anyway for interim solution before I get a chance to compile it again, as it says on the source code, once of the launcher has its .exe file under this directory : "\\myflashdisk\\oziexplorer\\oziexplorerce.exe"
can you just rename your "memory map" to have that name under that directory ?,
if you can't just inform me what is your complete path to execute that application ? I will recompile it for you.

Anonymous said...

Utems,
thank you for your response. I have tried that but the message "Oziexplorer or one of its components is missing" appears.

Anonymous said...

about that "component is missing" error, make sure you copy the related .dll files as well in the same direcory, I use this launcher to make my GPS run zip extractor from resco, it wasnt run until I put the additional dll file that come with that zip extractor to the same directory. Hope this trick will work for you.
