  • Blog Post: Introduction: Jim Causey

    I've been working as a technical author and editor since 1995. I've worked at Microsoft as a Programming Writer since 2006.

  • Blog Post: Platform Builder 6.0 Service Pack 1

    Posted by: Sue Loh Hello from MEDC! I have enjoyed meeting many of you in person in the last couple of days. :-) In case you missed the news, the service pack for Platform Builder 6.0 is now available as a web download, at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=BF0DC0E3-8575...
  • Blog Post: Windows Mobile 6 and the CE OS

    Posted by: Sue Loh Now that WM6 is publicly announced, I want to start taking steps to prevent confusion about one detail that is pretty major to most people who read this blog. Windows Mobile 6 does NOT run the CE 6 OS. Technically the OS version # in WM6 is 5.02; it's an advancement of the OS (5...
  • Blog Post: Books and other resources for learning about Windows CE

    Posted by: Sue Loh I am occasionally asked whether I know any good books or other resources to help learn about Windows CE internals, APIs, and more. I wish we had the Windows CE equivalent of the deep Windows Internals books written by Russinovich and Solomon . But we don't. There is an old book...
  • Blog Post: What the heck's a meme? I don't like chain letters.

    Posted by: Sue Loh So why am I responding to Mike tagging me ? I don't know. Mike, haven't you got better things to do during the holidays? Spend your time eating too much like the rest of us. :-) For that matter, haven't I got better things to do right now...? Yeah, but oh well, what the heck. ...
  • Blog Post: Other Windows CE Videos

    Actually I posted too soon (too focused on myself! tssk tssk). Wow! I should look at Channel 9 more often. Here are some other Windows CE related videos and related material: Mike Hall blogged about our CEAppCompat tool for determining whether your CE 5.0 application is ready for CE 6.0, and now...
  • Blog Post: Windows CE Tools Videos

    Posted by: Sue Loh They've put some videos online, which I recorded earlier this year. Funny, I thought they were going into our Tutorials and eHow-Tos , not on Channel9, but it doesn't matter much. Performance tool contrast: CeLog vs. Kernel Profiler How to collect CeLog data without Remote...
  • Blog Post: CE6 documentation is now online

    Posted by: Sue Loh It appears that the MSDN online help was revised in the last day or so; my old shortcuts are getting rerouted to new places. I see that the CE6 docs are now online at http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa924073.aspx . In particular, you may be interested in: Migrating...
  • Blog Post: What’s new in Windows CE Platform Builder’s System Debugger 6.0?

    Posted by: Greg Hogdal Windows CE 6.0 introduces a new kernel with a new virtual memory model – offering a different address space for each process, enabling the support of more than 32,000 simultaneous processes, each with 2GB of VM space. A major effort was to modify the kernel debugger to support...
  • Blog Post: CE6 Drivers: What you need to know

    Posted by: Sue Loh One of the biggest concerns people have about the new CE6 release is backward compatibility. Every release we try very hard to make existing applications, drivers and OALs as compatible as possible. With CE6 we expect very high compatibility for applications and even OAL code, but...
  • Blog Post: Memory marshalling in Windows CE

    Posted by: Sue Loh This article explains how memory access and memory passing is implemented in Windows CE 6 as well as previous versions of the OS. My intention is to explain the significant differences in CE6 by contrasting it against earlier OS versions. I structured this explanation to talk mostly...

    Posted by: Sue Loh Note: Big thanks to Jonathan Lyons who is the true author of most of this post! Italics are my writing, the rest is his.

  • Blog Post: The CE6 OS differences in a nutshell

    Posted by: Sue Loh Ha! Some nutshell. This post is rather long -- though for me, that's nothing new. I’ve tried to at least provide a starting point for you (OEMs and ISVs ) to begin understanding the details of the CE6 OS that will mean most to you. I and the rest of the CE base team plan to follow...
  • Blog Post: CE6 Virtual Launch Keynote: Post 3 (Q&A)

    Q: Will the real-time capability of Windows CE be impacted by the new kernel changes? A: No. CE6 maintains the same level of real-time capability you are used to having from Windows CE. Q: Now that Platform Builder is a Visual Studio plug-in, what does the toolkit cost? A: The toolkit is $999 US like...
  • Blog Post: CE6 Virtual Launch Keynote: Post 2

    Back to Todd Warren. He is talking about all the connectivity options that are now part of Windows CE. The Networked Media Device (NMD) feature pack allows people to build devices like DVRs. Wireless networking and media makes it easy to build connected projectors, connected soda machines, connected...
  • Blog Post: CE6 Virtual Launch keynote: post 1

    I am watching Craig Mundie's keynote at the CE6 Virtual Launch online. I don't think I've ever seen him before; he has a raspy deep voice. He's talking about the evolution of Windows CE over time, since its first release (Handheld PC) in 1996. Happy 10th birthday, Windows CE! He's going over how different...
  • Blog Post: CE6 Virtual Launch!

    Posted by: Sue Loh It is last minute notice, but in case you missed Mike Hall's post about it and didn't receive any other launch materials, CE6 launches tomorrow! Here's a link to the launch site: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/embedded/ce6launch/default.mspx They asked me to blog live during...
  • Blog Post: Windows Embedded Student Challenge 2007

    Posted by: Sue Loh You may already know, our WESC competition is now part of the larger Imagine Cup event. The embedded piece of that event will be very similar to WESC of the past. The main differences are that there will only be 15 finalists instead of 30, and that finals will be in Korea next year...
  • Blog Post: Windows CE 6 kernel and driver videos online

    Posted by: Sue Loh Hello all, sorry it has been so long since I've posted any real info. Thank goodness my teammates are picking up some of the slack. Have a few posts I hope to get to Real Soon Now. In the meantime, a quick link. As Mike Hall just posted, there are a couple of new CE6 videos online...

    Posted by: Sue Loh Is there source code that is not part of our shared source, that you wish was? Then now is your chance to request it: https://live.datstat.com/MED-Collector/Survey.ashx?Name=Shared_Source_Survey Of course you might not be able to say "I want foo.cpp" since you won't know what...
  • Blog Post: MEDC 2006 Vegas is now over.

    Posted by: Sue Loh Well, another year over and I think it went well. We got to finally announce the Windows CE 6 beta and talk about the features in CE 6, which was very exciting. Those of us on the kernel team have been working on this for quite a while now. I plan on blogging some stuff about CE...
  • Blog Post: WESC: How to write a good report

    Posted by: Sue Loh I have been reviewing reports for the Windows Embedded Student ChallengE and was inspired to write up this explanation of how to write a good report. Too bad it's too late for everyone in this year's contest. :-( Sorry everyone. But at least this year's finalists can use it to make...
  • Blog Post: MEDC-Vegas less than 2 weeks away!

    Posted by: Sue Loh Do YOU have YOUR tickets? I am pretty psyched. I will be giving 2 talks plus an instructor-led lab (which I'll be giving twice): EMB310, EMB311 and ILL330. Plus I'll be sitting on the sidelines for a few other talks, like those about kernel and drivers in the next version of...
