Release Notes

About

This zip file contains the repository contents.
Alternatively, you can get is from there via TFS.(You can also download the zip file from there).

This version provides full source code for the Managed Code tools.
Note though that the OS builds, by default use pre-existing SDK builds (in \bin).
To actually build them you need to set BUILDVSPROJECT to 1 in the OS Environment properties.

Start Menu

As with previous versions of the OS, all app .exes are placed in \Windows but they can appear to be elsewhere in the file tree by placing shortcuts elsewhere. The Explorer Shell (no longer available for WEC from version 2013) used shortcuts for its Windows Start Menu. Shortcuts placed in \Windows\Start Menu appeared on the first level of the Start Menu. There were also special folders for things items to appear in the submenus such as Programs submenu.

This version of Compact13Tools, whilst not removing the MinShell menu, has a "Start Menu" as the first item list as Start Menu. Apps that have a shortcut in the folder as above appear on the floating menu and are run by a single click. Three of the Compact13Tool's subprojects have been modified so their .dat file has the required code for generation of the shortcut in that folder as above and so appear on the Start Menu are (Notepad, WebBrower, RegEditor. Other related Codeplex tools are being modified to include this shortcut generation. The new CESerialTerm already has it.

CEComponentWiz can auto include the required shortcuts in the generated OS Subpproject. See Other below.

The required Catalog component is Start Menu, and is built as Compact13StartMenu.exe
