WM 2003 app only runs once on WM 5.0?

Post by cnlhbmtyZX » Sun, 12 Feb 2006 00:09:27


Does anyone know why a WM 2003 application will only run once on a WM 5.0
device. I have to re-install the program (or reset the device) to run the
app again???

I cannot figure out what exactly I am doing incorrectly. Any help would be
greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Ryan

I guess it may still be running in the background.
What I think: a previous run of the program didn't close completely. On
startup the program looks for another with its name. If it finds one, it
brings that one into the foreground and terminates itself. But if that
found one is halfway destroyed, it doesn't get to the foreground and it
looks like nothing is started at all.

This is obviously not a common problem. Please give more info: device
you are using, type of app (.NET, managed), what certification is
required, etc.

If your app is using priveleged APIs and you are redefining the
security model of the device (ie. switching from One- or Two-Tier to No
Security) to work around this then you should know that this is A) an
inpermanent setting that goes resets after a restart and B) only useful
for testing. Just a though!

As opposed to being halfway destroyed you might have used the .Hide()
method to hide your app (which is very different from a SmartMinimize
as it will not be brought back by simply opening the program).
You can check if your app is running by launching Remote Process
Viewer, which lists all processes, not just visible applications like
the Running Programs dialog.
