Action Screen in Dutty's ROM and Pocket Informant 8 [SOLVED]
Is there a way to edit the action screen app so when you click 'new appointment', 'new task', 'new note' etc it opens in Pocket Informant 8 rather than the default apps??
I'm assuming it would require registry changes, so any pointers as to which entries to change would be much appreciated.
Also, for those not using Pocket Informant, you should check it out. It is much more powerful and much more useful than the default calendar, notes and tasks apps.
I've managed to solve the problem. Here is a solution for all those interested.
Use a reg editor to navigate to HKLM\Software\HTC\Biotouch\ActionScreen
In there you will find a folder for each shortcut on the Action Screen menu (titled APP_0 - APP_6).
To fix the New Appointment shortcut, select the APP_3 folder. Scroll down and find the entry titled 'path' and change the value data to......
If Pocket informant was installed on your storage card: \Storage Card\Program Files\WebIS\PocketInformant\Pocketinformant.exe
If Pocket informant was installed on your device: \Program Files\WebIS\PocketInformant\Pocketinformant.exe
Save the entry and then select the APP_4 folder to fix the tasks shortcut. Find the 'path' entry and once again change the value data to the same entry as you used for the Appointment shortcut.
Repeat for the APP_6 folder if you want to fix for Contacts.
I have not worked out how to redirect the notes shortcut, other than having it open the notes program (i.e. it will open the notes section, but not automatically create a new note) but to be honest, this doesn't bother me. If you want it to open the notes in Pocket Informant, open the APP_5 file and change the path once again. Then open the param entry and modify the data to -custom 44555.
I'm sure it is possible to have it open a new note, but I didn't put the effort into discovering the required parameter (because as I said, it doesn't bother me).
SOFT RESET your device and the links will now properly work
