Hi. Recently I started experiencing a problem where WM 6.5 just closes running apps. I don't know why this happens. I noticed that I was not getting emails and saw that the email program was not running. I started it again and soon it was gone again from the taskmanagaer list of running apps. I looked around and I think this has something to do with memory management in WM. I don't know why this problem just started. It kills the apps even though I have over 80M or even more of free memory.
Any ideas of what I can do? Are there any registry settings that need to be adjusted?
Thanks for your help.
Oh, that sounds interesting. How can I see that information? Is it in a log file? Do I need to turn something on and where should I look to see?
Meanwhile - I told Battclock to show me the number of processes. I'm around 26 running processes (up and down). I started a bunch more apps and when Battclock showed me 32 I saw it would not open any more. It gave me a warning screen with a message that it could not start the next process.
The problem had just started but took me about a week to figure out what happened. During the problem the memory stayed high - over 90mb free and only a few applications were running (1, 2 or 3). I found a patch called AUTOCLOSEPATCH.CAB. I installed that. It had made some changes in the registry under key HKLM\System\OOM. Then the phone went back to normal again. I could start 10-12 applications at once (I was just testing. I never run so many - my main problem was just that my email program would keep getting stopped). Later I see that the registry keys in HKLM\System\OOM went back to the original numbers but still worked ok. So I think that something went bad and that the patch changed something back. I'm really not sure. I hope it stays good. I see my free program memory level hovers around 40-70 free megabytes now.
Just one of the Windows Mobile quirks I guess. I still continue to have the other problems I mentioned that once in a while the sound turns off and sometimes the accelerometer stops. I called HTC but they were not able to help. So it's RESET - RESET - RESET.
Thank you. I MISS THE BATTCLOCK UPDATES AND ENHANCEMENTS and the dicsussions in this thread.
I'm starting on a new project and will need to learn how to program for cell phone applications. I wonder if you can start me off. I have been programming on big machines, not even PCs. Where should I start? What do you recommend?
I don't know what language(s) cell phone applications are written in. What language did you write Battclock in? Of course it would be best to write in a language that can work on the Android, iPhone and Windows Mobile platforms. Is that possible? I understand that Battclock can not run on Android or iPhone so I wonder if that might not be possible or you would have done that. Unless it's because you had to interract with the OS and that interraction might be too different. I don't know.
The project I will be working on will be a standalone application. I don't *think* it needs to interact with the OS but since I haven't done it yet I don't know if that is accurate either.
I would appreciate if you could give me ideas on a place to start. I suppose if I need to limit it then they will want me to write for iPhone and Android. (I don't even have an Android phone).
Thanks a lot.
