Notes for installing Ministumbler on
Short version: jump to # 10
My first attempts have been very frustrating but finally got there...
1- installed v. 0.4. Won't run. Jornada complains about missing bits
and pieces (program or libraries)
2- read discussions on Ministumbler.org forum. There you find
references to fake libraries, hex-editing the executable and so on.
3- installed customized AGYSHELL.DLL and MFCCE300.DLL custom libraries
that should allow running PocketPC apps.
4- libraries not good, reinstalled. Find your way between PPC, HPC,
ARM, MIPS... versions. Soft resets in between to ensure the proper one
is loaded. Still no go
5- illumination: perhaps the DLL trick refers to older versions of
Ministumbler. v 0.3 found on third party site, hex-edited and installed.
6- WOW! edited 0.3 version opens
7- damn... my wireless card is not recognized and I'm unable to access
the control menus. Due to limitations in the "fake" libraries adapting
PPC to HPC format, command keys are not translated. Only available
options: CTRL+Q (quit), CTRL+S (save .ns1 file), CTRL+O (open .ns1) file
8- test with various versions of GX.DLL. No luck
9- back again to Netstubler site. Re-read Ministumbler FAQ in
depth. HPC2000 clearly supported. Why the **** doesn't run on my
10- working back on v 0.4: when you run the
MiniStumblerInstaller_0_4_0.exe all files are uncompressed on your
desktop pc under .../Program Files/Microsoft ActiveSync/
11- in fact the HPC200 CAB is there. What happened when
installing? Perhaps the wrong CAB was used.
12- edit MiniStumbler.ini in its last line, leaving only:
CabFiles = MiniStumbler.HPC2000.ARM.CAB
Delete all other CABs (probably not necessary)
13- run the installer
14- bingo: MiniStumbler up and running!
Ok, I'm a dummy... and this helps just in case you're one as well...
