Can you provide me the reference to "Property Sheet Extension application"?

There are many ways to do this, but the easiest way is to put a
"bspversion.txt" file containing the version in your
PLATFORM\<BSP>\FILES folder and add "bspversion.txt" to your
platform.bib FILES section.

Now you can create a CE control panel applet (or whatever) that simply
opens the text file from the \Windows folder and displays the string.

Good luck,

Hi SR,

I have just completed the same application that will calculate the
hashes for my drivers and will display when I will call my

Michel is right all you need is to get the version number of your BSP
during the build time and put that into a txt file.And write a simple
Property Sheet Extension application that will add your page in the
About tab.Don't forget to that txt file in the platform.bib coz then
only your application can all and read that txt file.

Please feel free to ask if you have any doubt.


Hi SR,
I can not share the source code of the application but certainly guide
you through this app development.
All you need is to create VS2005 smart device win32 application.

This will create some automatic files for you.
You can find a folder named TESTPROP in public Tree.This will have all
the files you need for the app.All you need is to replace the
occurence of testprop with your project name.

There is a walk through for a simple app in MSDN also.Check this link

Please feel free to ask if you have further questions.
