Don't know if someone have mensioned it yet, and i'm a newbie...
You can get it to work under Windows Vista 32-Bit and 64-Bit, and you can get it all for free, exept TomTom of cause :-)
Microsoft Windows Mobile Device Center Driver for Windows Vista:
Vista 32-Bit: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en
Vista 64-Bit: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...DisplayLang=en
Microsoft Device Emulator 2.0
Windows Mobile 6 Localized Emulator Images
Remember to get the Professional version, cause there you can emulate the Pocket PC
obviously you didn't see my post ^^^ :rolleyes::p
so in vista, it embeds no problem? is that the difference here John?
Seems to be fine :nod:
I simply copied the files straight off the XP drive installed the emulator and images, called the batch file up from within CF, and it embeds straight away and tomtom still works smoothly.
One tweak I have done is make PPC run at startup using a batch file containing:
"C:\Program Files\Microsoft Device Emulator\1.0\DeviceEmulator.exe" "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Windows Mobile 5.0 MSFP Emulator Images\pocketpc.nb0" /s "C:\pocketpc.dess" /p /sharedfolder "C:\StorageCard" /vmname TomTom /video 800x318x16 /memsize 128
I then open tomtom from within the emu. manually
then run CF
Then make CF run an empty batch file called TomTom.bat containing only
And give it TomTom as a window name
This forces CF to Embed the already open Emulated TomTom program
Only thing is I have removed the serial bit as its crashing out in the house with no GPS, and the GPS unit is built into my car now :(
TomTom takes ages to load at first (hence the pre-loading thing) on a SP13000 but runs through the menus pretty smoothly once loaded, and music doesn't stutter :)
I use hibernate and suspend all the time so the long startup doesn't matter. Up to now all seems well after resuming :)
Will test in car soon...
Can someone write a quick update to the install procedure using Emulator 2.0 and TomTom 6?
The process does not seem to work the way it did with the 1.0 and 2.0 Beta emulators. And I never was able to get TomTom 6 to work correctly, it could not find the map loaded on the virtual SD on the C: drive.
I could go through the whole thing using 1.0 and upgrade as you all have but it seems unnecessary.
If I missed a post that covered this I appologize in advance.:yield:
try the link in my signature. There's some info there on how TT6 was installed
you can use GPSGate to emulate a feed from a log.

I will probably be going back to XP before I refit into the car :nod:
Vista is nice and does bring benefits, but its just too new at the moment and some of my hardware has no drivers for vista, just used the XP ones for now but that stops my PC from sleeping :(
I installed the Emu2.0 and Images from fresh, and then just copied my saved state, batch files, and c:\storagecard directory accross and it works as described above...
Will see if I can find a log to run on it tonight, failing that, I'll rip the GPS out of the car :rolleyes: AGAIN :(
hehe. nice one, will be interesting (for me) if you can get it working with XP :)
can someone please post some screens already?
