To run the code sample

  1. Navigate to the solution file (*.sln), and double-click it. By default, the solution file is copied to the following folder:

    C:\Program Files\Windows CE Tools\wce500\Windows Mobile 5.0 Smartphone SDK\Samples\CPP\ATL\AXSample\AXSample.sln

    Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 launches and loads the solution.

  2. Build the solution (Ctrl+Shift+B).

  3. Open to the AxSample project properties.

  4. Navigate to Configuration Options > Debugging.

  5. Set the Debugger to Launch to Smart Device Native Debugger.

  6. Set the Remote Executable to \windows\iexplore.exe.

  7. Set the Command Arguments to \Program Files\AxSample\AXSample.htm.

  8. Deploy the solution (F5).

    The sample is copied to the device, and is registered. Internet Explorer Mobile then automatically launches and navigates to axsample.htm.

To debug the code sample

  1. Load the AxSample.HTML file with Internet Explorer Mobile.
  2. Try clicking various buttons, circles, etc that have been displayed.

To install the certificate from the windows desktop

  1. Click Start > Run.

  2. Type the path-name to SDKSamplePrivDeveloper.pfx certificate, and click OK. By default, this is located in the following folder:

    C:\Program Files\Windows CE Tools\wce500\Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC SDK\Tools\
  3. Double-click the SDKSamplePrivDeveloper.pfx certificate icon. The Certificate Import Wizard appears.

  4. Click Next. The certificate path-name is filled-in.

  5. Click Next.

  6. Click Next (you do not need a password).

  7. Click Next. Accept the default options; automatically select the certificate store based on certificate type.

  8. 9. Click Finish.
