Are you trying to use the WinCE emulator or an actual device? The emulators don't support a lot of stuff that the actual devices do mainly because emulators don't have access to the hardware. But I don't know if that's your problem or not. And not all devices that run WinCE are the same -- so what works on one manufacturer's device may or may not work on another. For example the scanners made by Symbols Technologies is a lot different than those made by Intermec. We had to make a lot of program changes when porting from one device to the other.

I am using the actual device not the simulator, well also my problem has been solved i have used the createProcess to play the media file but now i want to terminate the process by which the console of media player should also get closed autometically, right now i m using the TreminateProcess api but this process is returning the error code as 6 saying the handel is invalid, this is what i m using right now

CreateProcess(_T("\\windows\\ceplayer.exe"),_T("\\windows\\mo1263.wmv"), NULL, NULL, FALSE, CREATE_NEW_CONSOLE, NULL, NULL, NULL, &ProcessInfo);

WaitForSingleObject( ProcessInfo.hProcess, INFINITE );

TerminateProcess(ProcessInfo.hProcess, uExitCode);

// Close process and thread handles.
CloseHandle( ProcessInfo.hProcess );

but i m not able to close the mediaplayer autometically.can u please provide some help on this.
