I see there are versions w/ and wo/ the 2577 folder.


The 2577 folder is for an 'automatic' setup/install for a dll or two to get a menu item or Today Screen icon on a PDA (and possibly a SmartPhone?). It's irrelevant to you and can be deleted. As long as you have all the rest of the necessary iGO files and folders--which I may be starting to doubt.

If I were you, I would start over with a known working version of iGo8 or Primo (your device has plenty of RAM to run Primo nicely) many of which are available here.

Versions of iGO with the 2577 folder are for Windows Mobile, 2577 is the autorun folder for ARM processors, ie, It will automatically start when the card is inserted.

Did your copy of iGO come from this site? Apologies if you you already answered.

One more question: I have written an app of my own which works nicely on Windows Mobile PDAs (WM 5.0). What can I do to make it work on Windows CE 6.0 ? I tried to install the CF.cab file but it wouldn't work - told me "it's not a valid CE Setup file" - is the Samsung processor on Mio Spirit 480 an ARM processor or is it something else ? I also see a .Net CF Directory coming from Dalik's VisualGPS, but still my app doesn't work. Any suggestions ?

Fatboyfun, Yurbuh Tuggly: No, it came from an "oceanic" site or "jamaican" site. I'll try to look for it on this site.

Most times (if not all times), the WinCE version on GPS PNA's is VERY stripped down from what may come on a smartphone or PDA. Only the basics are included to run the manufacturers GPS software--and perhaps not much else except a different GPS software package. Though it is sometimes possible to add files, DLL's, make registry changes, and other modifications to turn a GPS into something that resembles a PDA or POCKET PC, it can be a slippery slope--the result sometimes being a device that runs nothing. Bricked.

Hi,
I have the same problem with my Mio Spirit 480 device. At this moment, is there any unlock for WinCE 6.0 Core devices?

Thanks Yurbuh Tuggly - for this and all the other posts in this thread ! And, also, thanks Fatboyfun - for the same reason.

Yeah, unbelivable as it may sound, I wasn't aware of the difference between Windows CE and Windows Mobile. I have several WM devices (PDAs), but this is my first WinCE. I'm almost thinking of reselling or giving it away ! It's REALLY useless if I cannot make even my own app work on it - I thought I'd enjoy the larger screen, that's why I bought it ! That, and the price.

PS. I found three .rar files with iGO Primo optimized for Europe (no Maps) :-), but they seem to be password protected, and I didn't notice any password. Any ideas ?

It depends on what you mean by "unlock". If you read this thread, you'll see how far I've gone (not too far). The problems are, (1) the Spirit 480 is quite new, and (2) it's a WinCE device. Visual GPS will give you some additional software which works on the 480 - but it's nothing mind blowing.

If that's the one from me, the password is in the spoiler---navitotal.

You're welcome. And sorry to disappoint, I guess. But in reality, especially with a battery charge/run time of less than a few hours--sometimes much less, a PNA does not make a very good PDA anyways.

Dependancy walker or PEInfo can give you clues as to why your programme does not work on WinCE 6

Dependancy walker runs on PC
PEInfo runs on device

Both scans the programme for required dll's and other dependancies and tells you whats missing.

Ok, I understand that will have to wait until someone will release an updated unlock that will work on Mio Spirit 480 and similar devices.

PEInfo/Info/Import says:
Necessary library file(s) mscoree.dll not accessible.

I googled and, if I understand correctly, mscoree.dll is also part of the .NET Compact Framework - i.e. part of what's actually missing on a Windows CE device.

So what PEInfo is actually saying is either
"I cannot tell you what you're missing because you're not a WM device". he-he-he.

or
"Your app needs mscoree.dll" - which seems true, since the app was developed for Windows Mobile 5.0 (or 5.5) in VisualStudio.net.

If you place the dll file in the applications directory it usually works, Miopocket has a full set of libraries included that you can use, and i think the .net framework files.

Anything that needs .NET CF, you will have much trouble with on a GPS device. It's not there in WinCE 5 or 6 on most PNA's, and close to impossible to get it installed in such a way that it 1) does not disappear on the next hard reset or 2) does not mess up something else bigtime.
In some cases, you can copy missing files or DLLs to the application folder, but this is the exception rather than the rule.

Yeah, I'm beginning more and more to feel that THIS is the ugly truth. Also, although the processor in the Spirit 480 seems to be ARM-like orm ARM-type, it may be that it needs its own dll_s and CAB_s, and, because it's new, there's nowhere to download them.
