Internet Explorer Catalog Items and Sysgen Variables (Compact 7)

3/12/2014

In Windows Embedded Compact, you can add Internet Explorer Embedded to your OS design so that users can access or browse the Internet, or you can include support for Internet Explorer 7 and implement your own web software.

For more information, see Internet Explorer Embedded.

For more information about how to add or remove catalog items, see Design Your First OS.

The following table describes the catalog items and associated SYSGEN variables that you can use to implement Internet functionality.

Catalog item SYSGEN variable Description Dependencies

Adobe Flash Player 10.1 ActiveX Control

SYSGEN_IE7_FLASH10_1

Provides an ActiveX control that enables Internet Explorer Embedded to display videos or animations that are compatible with the Adobe Flash Player.

Requires a display screen and an Internet Explorer Embedded web browser, such as Internet Explorer 7.0 XAML Runtime Browser or Internet Explorer 7.0 Sample Browser.

Other SYSGEN variables may be required so that applications that run in Adobe Flash Player can access peripheral devices such as the camera or microphone on a device. The Adobe Flash Player will automatically detect peripheral devices, and the user can select the correct device if more than one is available. To support these peripheral devices, set the following SYSGEN variables to 1:

  • SYSGEN_USB_AUDIO for USB microphones
  • SYSGEN_USB_CAMERA for USB cameras (or enable the Direct Show filter for the camera)
  • SYSGEN_PARALLEL or SYSGEN_USB_PRINTER for printing
  • SYSGEN_ACCELEROMETER for an accelerometer

Filter and Transition

SYSGEN_IE7_DXTRANS

Applies visual effects to the objects in web pages and to the transitions between web pages.

Requires a display screen and a web browser. Also requires SYSGEN_IE7_MSHTML and SYSGEN_ATL. For more information, see Active Template Library (ATL).

Important   SYSGEN_ATL does not automatically create dependencies on other SYSGEN variables that specific ATL functionality may require. If such a dependency exists (for example, SYSGEN_CPP_EH_AND_RTTI, SYSGEN_CPP_SEH), you must explicitly add the appropriate SYSGEN variables.

Internet Explorer 7.0 Sample Browser

SYSGEN_IE7_IESAMPLE
