but a side effect is faster application load times
i figured i'd try it on the Blackstone and difference is noticeable
HTCAlbum loads in about 1 Second, before it took about 4
so i'm sharing this with anyone who is interested
The batch file is kept as simple as possible for everyone's ease of use
but this is pretty advanced tweaking, so all common warnings apply
if you are not comfortable with getting files from/to your PocketPC
can't figure out how to extract this zip and read the "read me.txt"
don't know what “any key” is DO NOT TRY THIS!
(read the forum and the wiki a bit more, and you'll gain the knowledge)
v 1.0 - initial release
v 1.1 - no icon compression switch added to the batch, for more general compatibility
v alt - here geistteufel has released a new branch of the batch file,
this version uses a different method for packing files and may achieve better compression.
At the same time problems have been reported in the past with this method so all usual warnings apply.
a short list of EXEs that i have UPXed and work well for me
and here is a list of things NOT to compress
Please share your findings so that others can benefit from it
(SEARCH this thread for your application name or EXE filename)
note: you'll have to repeat this proses after upgrading your applications
