I tried to used the Owner info file for smartphone and ran into problems. How does one add Objects since the Visual IDE does not allow it. I added the library but do not know how to add the object.

The First line Reg.New1 can not be added. How does one do this?
Thanks for your help.

The code is below:


Sub App_Start
Reg.New1 'Registry object is named 'reg'
Main.Show
End Sub


Sub File_Click

If CPPC = false Then Return 'this is not for the desktop

Reg.RootKey(Reg.rtCurrentUser)
buff() =Reg.GetValue("ControlPanel\Owner\","Owner")
For i = 0 To ArrayLen(buff()) -1 Step 2
If buff(i)=0 Then Exit 'Chr(0) separates the name from other owner entries
m = m & Chr(buff(i))
Next

'Msgbox ("Owner name is "& m)
End Sub

Tools > Add Object > Registry

... and type Reg into the prompted dialog window.

Add Object grayed out

For some reason the ADDObject under TOOLs is grayed out and nonfunctional. Why would that be?

Adding Object & other issues

I found out that I have to add DLL file in both Device and desktop to add the object.
After I compile the project and transfer it to the device, I get the following error:
"Invalid CastException"

OwnerInfo on Smartphone error

Thanks for the information, I eventually figured that out. Now back to the real question, Get Owner Info Working on Smartphone.
I managed to compile the project and transfer it to the device, I get the following error:
"Invalid CastException"

Smartphone Owner Name

I checked the registry value with the program you mentioned. And it is indeed "CurrentUser\Control Panel\Owner\Name". However with this change I get an error message:
"An error occured on SubOwner_Click.
Line Number 0.
Error Description: An error occurred retrieving the registry key"

Hi Erel,

You have posted a link to the nice regeditor application for this thread. I tried to access to it, but, seem like the link is no longer exist. I was wondering do you still happen to have the regeditor for the Win CE/Win Mobile?

If not, do you know any nice powerful regeditor for me to navigate the registry in Win Mobile/ Win CE??

Thanks.
