How do you automatically perform a warm boot after installing a CAB file under PocketPC?
Anyway to do this via the Win32 API? (e.g. a setup DLL)

The device I need to do this on is a Symbol PPT2800 running PocketPC 2002.

Thanks in advance

include <winioctl.h>

#define IOCTL_HAL_REBOOT CTL_CODE(FILE_DEVICE_HAL, 15, METHOD_BUFFERED, FILE_ANY_ACCESS)

extern "C" __declspec(dllimport) BOOL KernelIoControl(
      DWORD dwIoControlCode,
      LPVOID lpInBuf,
      DWORD nInBufSize,
      LPVOID lpOutBuf,
      DWORD nOutBufSize,
      LPDWORD lpBytesReturned);

BOOL ResetPocketPC()
{
      return KernelIoControl(IOCTL_HAL_REBOOT, NULL, 0, NULL, 0, NULL);
}

Usually your cab maker has that option.

Thanks Mikal613,
I'll give the KernelIoControl() snippet a crack..

Hi Craig,
I'm using C++ and MFC.
