Hi,

quick question...
i am making a program without a form for windows ce and so i am trying to work in console but it seems some of the code cannot be implemented. does DllImport suppose to work in console?

Thx & BR
Ran.

Yes it works in console mode.

Thanks.

Any idea why VS doesn't recognize the DllImport word?

i am using the next "using":
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using Microsoft.Win32;
using System.Runtime.InteropServices;
using System.Linq;
using System.Collections;
using System.Threading;

Post the code where you use it.

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using Microsoft.Win32;
using System.Runtime.InteropServices;

using System.Linq;
using System.Collections;
using System.Threading;

namespace RegConfig
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            RegistryKey reg = Registry.LocalMachine.OpenSubKey(@"Init", true);
      
            reg.SetValue("Launch52", "\\Storage Card\\OpenIntApp\\OpenIntApp\\bin\\Release\\OpenIntApp.exe", RegistryValueKind.String);
            [DllImport("coredll.dll", EntryPoint = "RequestPowerNotifications")] // pre compile Error! - VS doesn't recognize DllImport
            
            

            Console.WriteLine("registry set");
        }
    }
}

Imports don't go inside methods. It should be inside the class, but not in the method. You are also missing the method signature. For example:

using System;
using System.Runtime.InteropServices;

class PlatformInvokeTest {
    [DllImport("msvcrt.dll")]
    public static extern int puts(string c);
    [DllImport("msvcrt.dll")]
    internal static extern int _flushall();

    public static void Main()     {
        puts("Test");
        _flushall();
    }
}

I am trying to figure out how to flush the registry in windows ce but with no luck

after the code you see above i tried reg.Flush();, program compiled and run but registry is not presistant after boot
i now tried using RegFlushKey(reg); but 'reg' is not an IntPtr. the internet have solution like reg.data but i can't use it (pre-compile) error. MSDN is not helping

finaly i found the problem, i was using reg.flush(); but it didn't seem to work, the reason was that the windows ce emulator was set to clear all registry on soft reset also
