    Issues installing Enterprise Browser Webkit v.1.4

    Peter Zalinski

      I've tried multiple times, using the installer, and using the CAB file from the Runtime folder, and I get the same error on the device,  each time:

       

      File Not Copied [ok][x] : The File "WebkitPlatformdeliveryCompiledAsDLL.dll was not copied successfully. To reinstall, you will  need to get the source .cab file again. Continue with setup?

       

      Does anyone have a functional copy of the install files or the above cab file?

       

      Thank you!

              Pietro,

               

              On a Motorola MC9090-G running WinCE 32-bit 5.0 OS.

               

              I had Version 1.3 installed at one time, but no longer have the install files – I couldn’t get the demo to function properly.

               

              So I decided to upgrade to 1.4 to try again.

                  Hi Peter,

                  On that device you need to install Enterprise Browser IE version.

                   

                  I can imagine that you're getting an error during install time simply because there's not enough memory on the device for EB files.

                   

                  Try that and check how much free memory you've after having installed EB.

                   

                  BTW: the Webkit version of EB is supported only on MC9190 and newer devices, on MC9090 we only support the IE based version.

                   

                  Ciao

                      Thanks, Pietro!

                       

                      Any words of wisdom regarding developing a barcode scanning app that has a server-based web app?

                       

                      Can it be functional and complex  across a premise-based intranet (not ‘cloud’) – using Enterprise Browser and a CE# / Java-based application?

                       

                      Thanks!

                          Hi Peter,

                          Something like that can be done and has been done in the past. We have thousands of devices used in that way with EB.

                           

                          Usually my suggestion is to use HTML5 app cache and local storage (or EB DataBase API) so that the app can works even when loosing connectivity with the server (imagine having an inventory app that collects the data locally, with a JavaScript timer that check if there's connection with the server and send the data when possible).

                          In your case this is not possible because on the MC9090 you need to rely on the Internet Explorer engine that does not support HTML5.

                           

                          In this case you can still use a bit of JavaScript to reduce the number of roundtrips with the server (for validation) but you can not do much more than that.

                          But any server side technology will be more than adeguate, choose the one you're more skilled. If your choice is for Java, we've customer happily using JSP pages and other that have done a full blown Java app using Google Web Toolkit.

                           

                          Without knowing more about your app/use case it's difficult to add any other suggestion.

                           

                          Ciao
