  • Mike Hall - Build a new Windows CE operating system in less than 10 minutes

    Hi Mike,



    I m working on STB porting of WINCE6.0, I am assign the task of writing WINCE display driver. The STB has its own display engine and its associated   set up routines.

    The final objective is to make use of windows apps like Internet explorer and windows media player

    As per my current understanding windows apps follow this architecture


    a)                         Windows apps----->Direct show ----->Direct draw--->-------->Hardware.


    b)                         As per web there is Direct Draw HAL
    Directdraw ------>DDHAL --------->Hardware.

                             It says something DDGPE too.

    GPE class is inherited by DDGPE and further our display Class should inherited DDGPE.


    GPE--------à--------DDGPE----------à-----------our display class.

    In our display class shall I write code for overriding following functions?




    Getmode info



    As of now the BSP is completed and we r able to see the desktop using remote desktop. We need to route the desktop to the STBs display engine.

    Pls provide me your suggestion.
    Any article, white paper, video would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance
