Splash Screen using StartUpCtl on MC9190

Hello,

I am using StartUpCtl 1.8 on an MC9190 running WinCE 6.00

I am trying to get the splash screen to work with my own image but with no success.

Are there any restrictions in place that I should be aware of?

 

The files StartUpCtlConfig.txt & StartUpCtlImg.bmp are in the \Application\StartUpCtl folder

I have attached the config file below.

Try removing the double slash

Try removing the double slash from the file path since the default StartUpCtlConfig.txt (which works) has the path with a single slash as per the sample below:

[Application_Properties]

Debug=FALSE

[Splash_Properties]

ImagePath=\Application\moto.bmp

[LogFile_Properties]

LogFileTempFolder=

LogFileFolder=\Application\StartUpCtl

MaxLogFileSize=

Hi Ian,

Debug=FALSE

[Splash Properties]

ImagePath=\Application\StartUpCtl\001BW.bmp

Still just get the default Zebra logo.

Can you try taking the

Can you try taking the default moto.bmp file and editing it with an image editor to see if the changes are effective using the default BMP? This would confirm whether the issue is the format of your BMP file .

I cannot find the moto.bmp

I cannot find the moto.bmp file on the device.

I am using version 1.8 which shows the Zebra logo.

Any ideas where the files are stored?

the \Application

the \Application\StartUpCtlStartUpCtlConfig.txt file should have the path of where the bmp file is being read from.

Check the size of your image.  you need to leav 70 pixels at the bottom,  Make sure its size and properties match the default.

Went back to basics with your suggestions, and the problem was me...

I left out the underscore in the config file

All working okay now
