Have you tried to find aygshell.dll from a little older WinCE (or from internet) and put it in executable directory?

"Some" is not good enough. There are 18 versions here: http://hpcmonex.net/izemize/aygshells.zip. Try one by one until you find a good one. More info can be found here: http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/WinCE_Programming_Tips#Missing_aygshell.dll

Try to copy this fake aygshell.dll to Windows dir on your WinCE:

Make sure you have the following Project Options set:
Compiler Options -> Target OS -> WinCE
Compiler Options -> Target CPU family -> arm
Compiler Options -> Additions and Overrides -> Set "LCLWidgetType" -> Value "wince"
Then compile, if the exe is too large go back into Project Options, Create a Release build mode and select that.

As for running on the device, I found I needed to switch the following form properties:
Position = poScreenCenter
Visible = true
KeyPreview = true (if you plan on accepting key presses)

If you still can't get it to work, try copying and pasting the code and I'll take a look.

Any luck with this? Tried all the hints and suggestions shown but no luck.

I am using Lazarus 1.6 and lazarus-1.6.4-fpc-3.0.2-cross-arm-wince-win32. (on Windows 7 64 bit)

Tying to run a simple app on a Motorola MC3200 PDT with Windows CE7 using and ARM OMAP4 (Cortex A9) processor.
Getting EAccessViolation $00012708.

Previously running the same app on a Motorola MC3100 with Windows CE 6. No Problem.

Already spent a couple of days on this but no joy.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi there, so here is a little description how to remove the dependencies of agyshell for WinCE systems:

in WinCEInt.pp remove the use of agyshell in the uses clauses

Code: Pascal  [Select]
  1. {$ifdef Win32}
  2.     win32compat,
  3.   {$else}
  4.     //aygshell,
  5.   {$endif}

Do the same in WinCEProc.pp and WinCEWSmenus.pp.

When you now compile you should get some errors. This is cause some record types and constants are declared in Agyshell.pp that are needed.

Copy the required declarations from aygshell to the unit files.
After that, still some compile errors while occure. this are the SH* functions of the aygshell. Comment them out. Most of the call seems to be useless anyway.
After this the compiliation should work without errors and the compiled program work without aygshell.dll.

Btw, using the LCL Forms worked with one form, creating a second form resulted in a continous poping up of the second form. I'm not sure if this a problem in the LCL framework or in the missing aygshell.
Using standard WIN-API everything is working well, also the creation of a second or third windows.
