Mistake

I, myself destroyed my GPS PNA because I meddled with the registry.. here's what happened..

I have a blaupunkt GSP PNA running Windows CE5 on the background.
I managed to unlock it ok, so that it would start with windows CE.

Then for no reason I decided I should experiment with some entries in the regisrty, and like that wasn't enough, I did this through remote RegEditor via USB connection.

Anyway, I changed an entry under HKLM > int called "launch20" from device.exe to something else.

That's all, the device starts with windows ok, but nothing else.
Obviously the drivers don't load on boot and what i see is that the device can no longer be recognized via USB and also it cannot read any SD cards from its slot.

So I cannot have access in any way to get a Reg Editor inside and fix the bad Entry.
Simply I've just locked myself outside the device for good.

Windows CE don't have any Registry Editor, so I guess that was the end of my device.. :/

Any thoughts...? Thank you. :/

To fix this you will have to reinstall Windows.

You can try a Windows CD Repair disk to see if that can help or running SFC /scannow via the Command Prompt.

Thank you for your reply! But how am I going to re install windows if I cannot comunicate with the device? USB and SD slot are not working. I cannot access the device at all.
Only the files that are already in the GPS device.

The phone then is basically a big paper weight then. If you can't boot it or use the USB slot then there's not much you can do.

way.. so it's working fine again!
