Update 2: Details about Portable CE 3.0 are now online.

Update: Here’s some additional instructions on getting Portable CE 2.0 to run with Windows Mobile 5.

I have to admit, I was actually a bit surprised at the number of people that were interested in the Portable CE idea that I wrote about back in December. The idea was simple: Using the Windows CE emulator, I could have my entire “internet communications system” on a virtual machine that I carried around with my on my USB keychain. I could essentally plug it into the USB port of any machine running Windows, and bring up the emulator and use Internet Explorer, Messenger, Inbox, etc. I received tons of emails, lots of comments and even a mention in PC Magazine. 9 months later, I present to you a totally new version: Portable CE 2.0.

First, a disclaimer: This is a work in progress after some experimentation. I make no guarantee’s it will work for you, that it won’t melt your machine or that it will solve world hunger, so cut me some slack.

What is Portable CE? Put simply, Portable CE is a ‘launcher’ for the Windows CE Emulation environment that can run an emulator-based Windows CE image from a USB keychain.

What’s new in Version 2.0? Here’s the killer part: Version 2.0 is now based off the new ARM based Device Emulator which can run native Pocket PC binaries. Yes, you read that correctly – with this version, you will be able to run most Pocket PC apps from emulation.

How do I set this up?

  1. Download the Microsoft Device Emulator 1.0 Community Preview by following the instructions on that page. You’ll need to go over to the MS Beta website and use the Guest ID that the page mentions. You should eventually be able to download DeviceEmulator050419.msi from there.
  2. Download snetcfg_wxp.zip from the JSI FAQ page. This tool will enable Portable CE 2.0 to install the Virtual Machine Network Service when launching and remove it when shutting down.
  3. Extract the emulator to a folder on your hard drive by running “msiexec /a DeviceEmulator050419.msi“. The installer will prompt you to specify a directory to extract to, for example “D:\DeviceEmulator
  4. Copy snetcfg_wxp.exe to wherever you extracted the device emulator to (ex – “D:\DeviceEmulator“).
  5. Copy the following launcher script to the folder that you extracted the device emulator to (ex – “D:\DeviceEmulator“). You’ll need to rename this from pce2.cmd.txt to pce2.cmd
  6. In the folder that you extracted the device emulator to (ex – “D:\DeviceEmulator“), create an “Apps” folder and a “State” folder.
    The Apps folder will be mounted in the emulator as “\My Device\Storage Card“.
    The State folder will save state information when you exit the emulator.

Once you have everything setup, just copy the entire folder (ex – “D:\DeviceEmulator“) to your USB keychain.

To launch Portable CE 2.0, just plug in your USB keychain, navigate to the folder and run pce2.cmd. Hopefully, after 30 seconds or so, the emulator will fire up (I launched IE and naviated to furrygoat.com):

As a test, I copied PocketFeed, the RSS reader I wrote for Pocket PC, over to my Apps folder and ran it. It worked without a problem.

This rocks. Now go to any Windows machine, plop in the USB key, and fire up your own “virtual personal machine” that runs Windows CE.

Update: There’s now a mailing list for comments on Portable CE here.

    I got this working with no problems, though it’s a tad slow on my 500 Mhz Dell desktop. :) Is there any possibility of you getting WM5 to run this way?


    Frank McPherson (September 17, 2005 @ 10:56 am)

    Another question. The Pocket PC image this provides has 32 MB of RAM, about 29 MB usable. Is there anyway to increase to say 64 or 128 MB?


    Steve (September 17, 2005 @ 11:13 am)

    Not sure about Windows Media 5, actually. Currently it doesnt seem to work, but since its the ‘preview’ version, perhaps it will be fixed by the time VS2005 releases (also, perhaps the speed will be better).

    To increase the RAM, we just add the command line option /memsize 128 (or 256). I’ve gone ahead and updated the launch command file with 128MB.

    Portable CE – Windows CE running from a USB Disk on Key.

    Go check out this cool concept over on the Furrygoat Experience- Steve has a build of Windows CE…

    Is There Any Way to Get Windows CE On CD So I Can Use It As A Backup OS just in case the OS on my hard drive fails?


    Steve (September 17, 2005 @ 7:42 pm)

    Geta – while the emulator should run fine from CD, it wouldnt do you much good. You need to be running Windows XP the run the emulator.

    badbob001 (September 18, 2005 @ 10:51 am)

    WM5 does work. You just have to download the WM5 SDK to get the rom files. I posted instructions here, which a somewhat similar to what Portable CE 2.0 does: http://www.gpspassion.com/forumsen/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=37325#224095


    Steve (September 18, 2005 @ 11:09 am)

    Ah, I thought Frank was asking about Media Player. Cool. Also, the link you posted had to do with the localized emulator images. The English version is here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=83A52AF2-F524-4EC5-9155-717CBE5D25ED&displaylang=en


    Darren Humphries (September 18, 2005 @ 11:50 am)

    This looks really interesting. I think I’ll give it a go. How large does the USB drive need to be?


    Steve (September 18, 2005 @ 12:13 pm)

    Darren – it’s about 50MB total.

    Portable CE 2.0 w/ Windows Mobile 5

    In the comments of my instructions of how to set up Portable CE 2.0, BadBob001 posted some information where to download the Windows Mobile 5 emulation ROM files. Here’s how you can update Portable CE 2.0 to Windows Mobile 5


    Darren Humphries (September 18, 2005 @ 12:53 pm)

    Thanks Steve. I guess that means that if you want to save info it will be anything above the 50? Is there any set limit to the amount of info you can store locally? In other words, with a 512mb USB drive will I have the 460mb available as a mounted storage space? Or show as RAM, or whatever.


    mscdex (September 18, 2005 @ 12:55 pm)

    Why is it when I both run the emulator and exit from it, it disconnects and reconnects my internet connection entirely on my PC?

    Anyone else have this problem?


    Steve (September 18, 2005 @ 12:59 pm)

    Darren – Right. Figure another ~20MB to store a ‘save’ image.

    MSCDEX – Thats because it’s uninstalling the VM Service driver. The launcher will detect if its installed – if not, it installs/removes it.
    If you want it to always be installed (and it’ll prevent the disconnection), go to Control Panel->Network Connections->Whatever network card. Then, select “Properties”, select “install”, choose ‘Service’ and install the Virtual Machine Network Service.


    Steve (September 18, 2005 @ 1:00 pm)

    BadBob – Thanks for the pointer, i’ve posted more info here: http://www.furrygoat.com/2005/09/portable_ce_20_.html


    Matt Brailsford (September 18, 2005 @ 1:49 pm)

    For anyone with an iPod you can also run it from there. Great stuff.

    PS I don’t seem to be able to get a net connection, it origionaly came up with something about not being able to find the VPN Driver. It doesn’t seem to say it anymore, but i still have no connection.

    Any ideas why?


    Tom Nelson (September 18, 2005 @ 3:28 pm)

    Downloading and install the the 2005 SDK also requires that VS.NET beta is also installed? Does anyone know where we can just get the 2005 emulator files? Thanks in advance.

    Windows Mobile 5 on your USB stick

    Steve from Furrygoat posted instruction how to load Windows Mobile 5 on a regular USB stick using the ARM-based Windows Device Emulator. Dubbed Portable CE 2.0, you’ll be able to run native Pocket PC apps from a virtual Windows CE environment on any…


    Steve (September 18, 2005 @ 4:55 pm)

    Tom – No, it doesnt need the beta. When you run msiexec /a, it just extracts the msi to a folder. The 2005 emulator files are in the Deviceemulation\0409 folder.


    Gustavo Guerra (September 18, 2005 @ 5:24 pm)

    How can I change the keyboard language of the emulator?


    Steve (September 18, 2005 @ 7:18 pm)

    Gustavo – You can download different localized emulator ROM files at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=eec33ae3-c129-4c25-abaa-18e8e842178f&displaylang=en

    Clay Meisman (September 19, 2005 @ 6:02 am)

    You can also create/modify the Autorun.inf on your memory stick to show Open WindowsCE in the Actions dialog(XP only) with the following contents:
    [autorun]
    open=pce2.cmd
    shell=pce2.cmd
    action=Open WindowsCE

    The only problem with this is that in pce2.cmd you need to add a CD\DeviceEmulator to your pce2.cmd file and move the pce2.cmd to your root directory of the storage card.

    Wahid – I just copied the apps (or cabs) over to my Apps folder, accessed it via File Explorer from inside the emulator to run the .cab.

    Roberto – I havent tried this yet, but it should be doable based off of everything that I’ve read.


    Giovanni (September 20, 2005 @ 3:38 am)

    Great Steve! Just a question please. Did You try to use the “Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003 second Edition Emulators for pocket pc” downloadable from msdn to implement something new in your package?
    Thank You very mutch.


    Dalum (September 20, 2005 @ 5:56 am)

    I can get everything working but I can’t get the save state to actually save. I select either exit or save and exit and it attempts ot go through the process of saving… then it just tells me it can’t save. I’m running the newest script from this posting and it all seems to run just fine. I would like to not have to keep putting info back in. Kind of defeats the purpose.


    Steve (September 20, 2005 @ 6:39 am)

    Giovanni – I moved over to Windows Mobile 5 bits as described in the follow up post at: http://www.furrygoat.com/2005/09/portable_ce_20_.html

    Dalum – What error do you get? Do you have at least 25mb free on your key?


    Dalum (September 20, 2005 @ 8:52 am)

    Ahhhh, I wasn’t aware of the 25mb window. I was experimenting on a 64mb SD card. I’ll have to go get a new card on payday. ;) One thing that I did realize is that you can shave some of the overhead by removing which kind of ppc emulation you want by deleting the square and SP versions from the install. It seems to be running without a hitch so far. I stil lwant more room tho.


    VladF (September 20, 2005 @ 8:00 pm)

    It is always cool to see people use the software you wrote in interesting ways :) The ActiveSync connectivity is possible but you’ll have to run: DeviceEmulator /regserver and regsvr32 /s DeviceEmulatorProxy.dll, regsvr32 /s SerDMAASPlugin.dll before running DeviceEmulator and you’ll need to launch DvcEmuManager and then cradle the emulator. Right now we don’t have a command line interface to cradle a particular emulator but we are looking to add it. Maybe something like DvcEmuManager /cradle %VMID% – this would cradle the device emulator with the given VMID and launch the manager in the minimized mode. Then you would not need to cradle manually. I’ll try to this to next preview download :)

    Thanks,

    Vladimir


    andy (September 20, 2005 @ 8:18 pm)

    So the MSGUEST beta id no longer works- and you still need to download the Emulator.exe – grabbing the wince5 SDK gives you the image but no emulator.

    Does anyone have just the emulator.exe that they can post?

    Ok- thanks VladF, the ID is now working!


    andy (September 21, 2005 @ 6:27 am)

    Allo- you have to click on the wireless icon in the menu bar and say that your network connects to the Internet. After doing that this works great with Wince5.

    Too bad it won’t go bigger than 640×480- I tried 800×600 but the emulator just ignored it.


    allo (September 21, 2005 @ 7:07 am)

    thanks andy but i have installed ppc2003 not wm5, i’m not able to use also activesync, how I can make syncronisation?This will be the same problem of internet connection i suppose


    viktor (September 21, 2005 @ 9:23 am)

    I just build a self-extrecting zip file, with autorun, and the most importatant programs, like betaplayer, to play divx, and macromedia player or ie, and adobe reader for pdf. And I deleted the original emulator skins, and smartphone version, to free up space. I make an icon, hide the emulator files, and change the background to winxp default. So at the and I’we got a 21Mb exe. It’s soo cool. Thank you!!!


    Steve (September 21, 2005 @ 9:30 am)

    Since there’s alot of interest in this, should I look into: building an FAQ, getting some forums or wiki going?


    allo (September 21, 2005 @ 12:30 pm)

    now i’m able to connect to internet but not able to syncrinize with activesync. What I have to do? is it possible to sync with version 3.8?how? thanks Allo


    Alastair (September 21, 2005 @ 1:21 pm)

    Networking doesn’t appear porable.
    When I use my usb disk in a different machine to the one on which the state was saved I get an error about not finding a network adapter with the right MAC address. The error is from teh emulator, not the emulated OS.

    On the plus side server based Activesync works like a charm (so long as networking is up), as do my vb.Net apps and SQLCE


    Jolee (September 21, 2005 @ 1:24 pm)

    Andy – try changing the color depth to 16 and it’ll go 800 by 600.

    Now if I can just wrap me head around autoloading a save state on startup…


    Steve (September 21, 2005 @ 3:01 pm)

    I think it has to do with the save state file – it appears to tie some stuff to the mac address. :(

    Shouldn’t a soft reset remedy that? It’s like forcing a release & renew on a PC.


    poet (September 22, 2005 @ 8:06 am)

    For those of you who may want to know, DvcEmuManager is a GUI piece of software. With a WM2003SE image along with ActiveSync 3.8, running DvcEmuManager allows me to select the running image and ‘cradle’ it. With that, I could set up a new partnership with the emulated device and synchronize it with my Outlook. Given a P4 system and a good video card, I could run an image that emulates my h2215 at almost the same speed! :)


    Dalum (September 22, 2005 @ 12:13 pm)

    Can anyone give a simplified version on how to setup the cradling of the device?


    poet (September 22, 2005 @ 5:19 pm)

    From memory, so pardon me if I don’t have it quite right. I can do this again tomorrow and document it, if you’d like.

    (1) Get your image up and running. Start its ActiveSync process.

    (2) Run DvcEmuManager and in the window you should see that DvcEmuManager has identified the emulated image. We’ll get back to it in step (4).

    (3) Start ActiveSync on your laptop/desktop and, from its command bar, choose File/Get Connected…

    (4) One of the command bar subcommands for DvcEmuManager is cradle. Clicking ‘cradle’ should start everything going.

    (5) Now follow the standard Partnership process.

    Dalum (September 26, 2005 @ 12:28 pm)

    David: The purpose is to have a “PDA” to cary with you and enable whenever you need it via an XP enabled PC. Be it to sched appointments, organize tasks, deal with contacts or anything else you would want to do with a PPC it can all be done this way. I find it amazingly convenient now that I have it all working and configured the way it needs to be (minus the current connectivity issue with ActiveSync.) I use my real PPC for me and an emulated one that I take with me between home and work. Since I work as executive for a sizable museum it’s very handy to keep it like that. Look past the fact that you don’t have a stylus and a touch screen and see what the potential is for making this emulator portable.


    Allo (September 27, 2005 @ 1:48 am)

    Anon (September 28, 2005 @ 7:25 am)

    David: It cannot be booted independently. You need a running Windows system to run the emulator in.

    This is certainly interesting but on machines where your access level is limited, you will not be able to install the driver for network binding. The emulator runs fine but there is no network access through the host.


    David-In-Ark (September 28, 2005 @ 7:30 am)

    Dalum: I can understand the novelty of this, but if you are walking around your museum and you need to enter data, then you are screwed unless you have a PC very nearby… For me, it seems this app actually inhibits rather then frees – save for the fact that it runs from ausb key, which is very cool indeed (provided you have a pc nearby)… One day, maybe they will actually squeeze a true pda into something as small as a usb key.. ;-) I do not mean to sound negative about this app, I guess I just need to put it into practice and find an advantage over carrying the actual pda where I can enter info on the fly anywhere, no pc required… ;-)

    -start register.exe
    -start pce2
    -start dvcemumanager.exe, after in the menu chose crandle option
    nothing else!

    As to “why?”, it is a way to run a Pocket PC app on your desktop computer, be it either to actually use the app (which may have no desktop equivelent, or, to input data with full keyboard and big screen) or to demo it to others.

    Can’t get internet to work. Noticed the ms-prompt says “Couldn’t find state file, using: “E:\DeviceEmulator\PPC_2003_SE\PPC_2003_SE_WWE_ARMv4.bin”

    do you get this same message?

    Boys, this is the coolest thing ever seen. It’s a great piece of job. It’s a great thing to have a little “spare pda” in an usb key. It’s useful to read your own mail or to see what you want to see in a browser without any trace.
    Great. :D

    Regarding the comment on a /cradle option for the VS2005 device emulator I can certainly say that a /cradle command line option would be an extremely useful feature to us.

    Do you know if the /cradle option is going to be implemented and if so do you have any timescale for its release?

    You can put new apps on the emulated device by using windows explorer to drop .cab files into the apps folder. Then run the device and use the file explorer in the emulated image to browse to the cab file. tap on it and it will install. I have found that games will not run well, it seems that the emulator clock speed is not up to running demanding programs. You can find some free cab files at http://www.freecabs.de/

    This is awesome.

    I don¬¥t know how to do this, but it shouldn’t be too hard to use the amazing QNX 4.2 bootable floppy distribution (a small *nix system that boots off a floppy iwth a great gui and networking) with QEMU. Who knows how to do this?
    you can download the flppy image and boot your pc from here:
