I committed changes in SVN to allow building of both arm and x86 targets. I updated the wiki as well.

The orbiter also runs on a supposedly WinCE 6.0 device, the Toshiba Journ.e Touch. The device is quite cheap , but is just as quick as the web orbiter 2.0 on Firefox on a regular laptop.

best regards,

250EUR is not quite cheap anymore, with comparable Androiod based devices selling for < 100EUR

Well, your absolutely right. But on the Norwegian market, it's one of the more reasonable priced devices I've found that ships at this time. Or maybe I just didn't search good enough  ;)

So far so good. Basically we have Orbiters for a whole slew of devices now. Waiting for information on the WebDT 366 (which is x86-based, and I don't have one of these).

That happens if someone clicks on a provided URL, instead of copying and pasting it. It seems our forum software cut the link before the category.

Worked for me when I clicked from e-mail, and was surprised to see that the URL was split at the asterisk in the forum.

I build the Touchorbiter for x86 and installed it on a webdt366 with WinCE 5.0.

When starting the application it reports "No a valid Win CE application" and aborts.

Any Clue?

Well, I do think it says "experimental" for x86. You did copy the x86 directory, right?

Here's a list of DLLs to look for:

* COREDLL.dll
* AYGSHELL.dll
* WS2.dll

See if you have these in your Windows installation. If one of them is missing, you'd get that error message (I think). Aygshell.dll would stand a change of not being there, in which case you don't have tap-and-hold gesture support and the code needs a small change (to use right click instead or something).

Uplink,

I checked the mentioned files, they are all available.
When I remove one of the dll I get a message about missing files, so I do not think this is the problem.

I created a helloworld program with cegcc, which works fine on the webdt.
Also the examples provided by the zlib and jpeg lib run fine.
However the example pngtest provided by libpng fails with the same message. So I assume the problem is in this library.
I added the following settings to the makefile....
MINGW_CCFLAGS="-DPNG_CONSOLE_IO_SUPPORTED -D_WIN32_IE=0x0400 -D_WIN32_WCE=0x0420" ALIGN="-falign-loops=2 -falign-functions=2

but no difference... continue to investigate... but help is appreciated.

Hmm... I wonder if I forgot to change a hardcoded compiler somewhere. Need to check if everything is built with the x86 compiler and nothing with the arm compiler.
