Tech Demo of Note Reader for PPC

This is a Technical Demo of my Pocket PC NoteReader for Libronix… This is a very early version which doesn’t format and only works with smaller files (Less than 100k should be OK. Though larger files might load, they will be truncated and/or take a while to load or even lock up your unit…. On the good news side, it also reads Prayer Lists and Sermon Files… Your Libronix files must be located in the “My Documents” directory either in main memory or on a storage card…

This software requires .NET Compact Framework v1.0 to be installed… (Available freely from Microsoft if you don’t have it already.)

To install, download, extract, and run the EXE from the Setup ZIP or you can just download and extract the CAB file from the Cab ZIP directly on your PPC, and run it from there… It can be safely installed on a storage card if you wish to when asked… When done you can delete the CAB file… An icon will be installed in your Start Menu called “John’s NoteReader”…

I will probably one day redesign the user interface and see what can be done to raise the file size limit (which might require v2 or v3 of Compact Framework)…

Once I am happy with the basic GUI design, and have the memory problems resolved, I’ll start thinking about releasing the code, especially if some other programmers are willing to help… Using VB.NET 2005 right now with v1 CF Smart Device Project for those curious… It is mostly code adapted from books and sites like the Code Project…

Anyway, I’m probably going to take a break from coding to work on my timelines… Please comment back on your thoughts about the demo in the meantime…

To God Be The Glory…
