I had this question after viewing Need to kill an application that is auto starting on Windows CE 5.0
I have a remote device running Windows Embedded CE 6. I would like to add some bench automation to this unit, but like most target devices ti has an autostart routine that puts an app on a touch screen with limited functions. I am confident I can get the automation I need if I can only poke around in the file system of the target device. I am trying to connect to the device remotely with a Windows10 machine, so activesync is out. I did try a windows XP machine and activesync failed, so the target device is not set up for that. That leaves TCP/IP I guess and a connection with Visual Studio tools? Is there a better tool? VS requires that I install Corecon files to the target, but if I could install files to the target, I would not need Visual Studios..... The unit can be attached with OEM software to run remotely as well as firmware updates are installed via USB connection, so I am pretty sure there is an agent installed to the target that allows this. The unit installs to devices under Windows10 as "USB Remote NDIS Network Device". I apologize for my novice approach here, but I am more of a hardware gy than software. I am willing to hire this hel pout if anyone knows a contractor that works with embedded windows. Thanks so much for reading!!
