Windows CE Platform Builder Monthly Updates for April 2009 are here!

Hi all,

here are the links to the April 2009 QFEs for Windows CE Platform Builder:

  • Windows Embedded CE 6.0 Monthly Update (April 2009)

    Fixes made in this update:

    By Component:

    Component: Codecs
    090413_KB968971 - This update enables dual channel MPEG audio.

    The registry key to handle dual channel MPEG audio playback:

    [HKLM\Software\Microsoft\DirectX\DirectShow\MPEGAudio]
    "DualMode"=dword:

    Where the value is:

    0 - enable dual channel playback
    1 - left channel only
    2 - right channel only

    The default value is 1.

    Component: DirectX
    090415_KB968612 - When a device renderer supports only YV12 format, some WMV files cannot be played.

    Component: IE
    090430_KB969515 - This update addresses a number of Internet Explorer issues.

    Component: USB
    090410_KB969745 - USB Interface descriptor may be parsed incorrectly.

    The file(s) with the new source code changes for this component can be found in the directory %_WINCEROOT\:

    public\common\oak\drivers\usb\hcd\common\cdevice.cpp
    public\common\oak\drivers\usb\hcd\usb20\usb2com\cdevice.cpp

  • Windows CE 5.0 Platform Builder Monthly Update (April 2009)

    Fixes made in this update:

    By Component:

    Component: IE
    090430_KB969498 - This update addresses a number of Internet Explorer issues.

    Component: WININET
    090430_KB961887 - If a client connects to a WinInet API that uses KeepAlives, and then has their IP address change, future attempts at that WININET API will fail.

    Implement a new feature hidden behind the registry key:

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings]
    "EnableKillKASocketsOnAddrChange"=dword:

    Default setting is 0, which allows WININET to keep KeepAlive sockets open when IP address changes. Set to 1 allows WININET to kill all KeepAlive sockets when IP address changes.

  • Windows Embedded NavReady Monthly Update (April 2009)

    Fixes made in this update:

    By Component:

    Component: Bluetooth
    090416_KB970061 - This update addresses the following issues:

    -Adds Names (if present) to call history entries when downloading via PBAP

    -Downloads contacts via HFP port on Samsung G600 and T729 Blast

    -Relax CPBS reply parser to accept LG's less-than-spec-complaint version (and use HFP port for LG KE850 and KE970)

    -Disables sniff mode for SE W300i

    -Addresses an issue in Chfpsvcmgr that may occur when receiving malformed vCard

    -Addresses 2006 vintage issue with AT PB DL call history parser

Hi, I'm a Windows CE begginer hobbyst, I stopped for a while (3 years), but now when I'm returning to, I tried to install my visual studio 2005 with Windows CE 6.0 r2 that came in a special package from Microsoft called "Spark Your Imagination"; but when I searched for the Monthly updates I couldn't find them.
Maybe you could help me to find those updates, cause the links I have used, doesn't work anymore.

Thanks in advance

Juan Pablo
