Gateway Registry Settings (Windows Embedded CE 6.0)


The registry stores information necessary to configure the Gateway for applications and hardware devices. The registry also contains information that the operating system continually references during operation.

To configure the gateway's public and private interfaces, the default IP address, and Internet Connection Sharing settings, you must modify the registry.

You can modify the device registry settings in the following ways:

  • Before building the OS design and downloading the run-time image, modify the Project.reg file. For more information, see Modifying the Registry by Editing Project.reg.
  • After downloading the run-time image, use the Remote Registry Editor. Using the Remote Registry Editor modifies the image registry, but the changes do not persist to the registry files in Platform Builder. The next time you download the run-time image, you must configure the registry again. For more information, see Remote Registry Editor.

For instructions about how to add the required registry settings for a gateway, see Configuring the Gateway Registry.
