    Hi all,

    I’m going to get all Techi on you, I want to deploy a custom image i have via DDC, as you know DDC works by checking the terminals reporting verions ie 579.0 agaisnst the image you have as defaults name IE 579.0.

    This works fine if we put in an out of date terminal as the verions of firmeware will not be 579.0 and it will image, but i want to all my units to image with a custom image i have and i want to know if anyone knows how to adjust the image verion in a built image.

    for example in my premade package i want to make it state version 579.1 from the terminal.

    hope this made sense im not the best at explaining…

    thanks

    Hi,

    this makes absolutely sense and I am doing this all the time when creating CE images for my customers.
    Here is the trick.
    Get the device configuration via WDM. Now you’ll find a settings.reg file on the FTP server. (Tell me, if you do not know what I am talking about)
    Edit this settings.reg file and add the following lines at the end.
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINEPlatform]
    “Build”=”580”
    “MinorBuild”=”01”
    “MinorBuild2″=”01”

    This will make the build version to 580.01.01 for example.

    Save the file now.

    Now you should rename it to setting9999.reg and make a copy of the file and name it factory9999.reg.

    Use WDM to bundle your own CE image. I’m always doing this in 3 steps.
    1. Bundle firmware primer plus addons
    2. Bundle result from 1. with setting9999.reg
    3. Bundle result from 2. with factory9999.reg

    The result would be a custom firmware with all your settings included. If you are doing a factory reset on this machine sometime I will fall back to YOUR factory default and not Wyse factory default.

    Does this make sense to you?

    Cheers

    Got slighty excited then, Ok I pulled the device config and went into the folder interpub/rapport/s30cfg <– what i called the config

    Edit the Settings.reg file but it does not have MinorBuild feilds for me to change any idea’s

    I’m working on a Wyse S30 CE.net

    Of course not. Just go to the end of the file and add the whole passage

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINEPlatform]
    “Build”=”580”
    “MinorBuild”=”01”
    “MinorBuild2″=”01”

    And use your values ๐Ÿ˜‰
    If you do not want a MinorBuild2 then just delete the last line

    oh now i look very stupid !, yes you did say go to the end and add the lines,,,, I got a bit carried away and being clever i didnt read it properly and simply went to the instructions.

    Thanks once again.. sorry that will teach me to get carried away. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    No problem. Somtimes it is time to be carried away.
