Windows CE
Sections include:
• TPC Utilities
• Networking
• Application Program Development
Chapter 4 Windows CE
The TPC-30/32 operator interface terminals are designed for Windows
CE. Windows CE is a compact operating system that occupies less storage space and use less system resources compared with other operating
systems. By its modular nature, it is possible to choose the functions that
are useful for a specific application. This not only reduced the system
resources required, it also reduces start-up time. In the field of industrial
automation or for operator interface terminals, this is an appealing feature
because the impact of downtime is minimized. Furthermore, the small
storage space required makes it possible to install the operating system on
a reliable solid-state disk.
Note
The default version of Windows CE in TPC-30/
32 series is the English version. Please contact
your local Advantech representative for local
language support.
Figure 4.1: Windows CE on TPC-30/32
Note:
The TPC-30/32 series also provides Remote
Desktop Connection in Windows CE but the maximum resolution supported is only 320 x 240.
TPC-30/32 Series User Manual

4.1 TPC Utilities
There are several utilities built into Windows CE in the TPC series.
4.1.1 Soft-Keyboard
The TPC-30/32 series also has a small-sized operator interface. Since it is
not convenient to attach a keyboard to such a small device, a software
keyboard is built into the standard Windows CE OS. Upon boot-up, a
small keyboard icon will appear on the status bar. Tap this icon with the
stylus to activate/hide this Soft-keyboard.
Figure 4.2: Soft-Keyboard
4.1.2 TPC Configuration
The TPC-30/32 series provides an integrated utility to configure the basic
settings of the device. Execute it by clicking the TPC Configurator icon
on the desktop. Navigate the configuration by tapping the four tab pages
for: general, network, watchdog and misc.
Figure 4.3: TPC Configurator

Chapter 4
General Page
This page displays the basic system information. There are two main
parts: system and memory. The system shows the OS image version and
CPU type. The second part includes total capacity, usage and currently
available capacity of the disk and the memory.
Figure 4.4: General
Network
This page shows information about the active network adapter. You can
select the network adapter from the combo box as shown in Figure 4.5.
Release the current IP and retrieve the new IP through the provided button, “Renew”. Use the “Ping” button to ping a specified IP address if you

You can get more detailed IP information through “Advanced Network”.
The information contains the default gateway, DHCP server, WINS and
DNS server address as shown in Figure 4.6 below.
Figure 4.6: Advanced Network
Watchdog
Watchdog is a function to let the device automatically reset if a program
does not respond in time. This prevents system crashes and hangs to stop
your critical applications, as the watchdog will automatically restart the
machine when required.
Set the response time through the combo box as shown below. The timer
is the period that the watchdog will wait for a response.
Figure 4.7: Watchdog Setting
21
Chapter 4
Only when you select a time span and enable the watchdog, will the
response time be effective. When the watchdog is enabled and the "Test"
button is clicked, the NO resetting signal will be periodically sent to the
watchdog hardware onboard. The watchdog will suppose the machine to
be deadlocked and REBOOT it after the watchdog response time. If the
machine reboots as expected after the watchdog response time, the watchdog is proved to be working properly.
Misc
There are several functions provided in the Misc page as shown in the figure below.
Figure 4.8: Misc Page
Startup Programs: You can easily set the startup programs without editing. The programs listed in the combo box will be automatically executed
after the system has successfully booted. Click the “Add” button to insert
a file to the startup. If you would like to remove the file from the startup
or the combo box, please click “Delete”.
Note
Do NOT try to insert a NON-executable file into
the startup program.

Watchdog Timer
Programming
Appendix A Watchdog Timer
Programming
There is a built-in watchdog timer in the TPC-30/32 series. You can
access it through the WIN32 API. TPC-30/32 panel computers provide a
WDT driver to allow users to enable/disable the Watchdog timer. The
driver name is “WDT1:”. Programmers must open this driver before
using the resources. Then programmers can use DeviceIOControl functions to enable/disable Watchdog timer. The introduction below includes
the DeviceIOControl, the definition of the parameter and an example.
A.1 DeviceIOControl
This function sends a control code directly to a specified device driver,
causing the corresponding device to perform the specified operation.
BOOL DeviceIoControl(
HANDLE hDevice,
DWORD dwIoControlCode,
LPVOID lpInBuffer,
DWORD nInBufferSize,
LPVOID lpOutBuffer,
DWORD nOutBufferSize,
LPDWORD lpBytesReturned,
LPOVERLAPPED lpOverlapped );
Parameters:
• hDevice
[in] Handle to the device that is to perform the operation. Call the CreateFile function to obtain a device handle.
• dwIoControlCode
[in] Specifies the control code for the operation. This value identifies
the specific operation to be performed and the type of device on which
the operation is to be performed. No specific values are defined for the
dwIoControlCode parameter. However, the writer of a custom device
driver can define IOCTL_XXXX control codes, per the CTL_CODE
macro. These control codes can then be advertised, and an application
can use these control codes with DeviceIoControl to perform driverspecific functions.
TPC-30/32 Series User Manual
44
• lpInBuffer
[in] Long pointer to a buffer that contains the data required to perform
the operation. This parameter can be NULL if the dwIoControlCode
parameter specifies an operation that does not require input data.
• nInBufferSize
[in] Size, in bytes, of the buffer pointed to by lpInBuffer.
• lpOutBuffer
[out] Long pointer to a buffer that receives the operation’s output data.
This parameter can be NULL if the dwIoControlCode parameter specifies an operation that does not produce output data.
• nOutBufferSize
[in] Size, in bytes, of the buffer pointed to by lpOutBuffer.
• lpBytesReturned
[out] Long pointer to a variable that receives the size, in bytes, of the
data stored into the buffer pointed to by lpOutBuffer. The lpBytesReturned parameter cannot be NULL. Even when an operation produces
no output data, and lpOutBuffer can be NULL, the DeviceIoControl
function makes use of the variable pointed to bylpBytesReturned.
After such an operation, the value of the variable is without meaning.
• lpOverlapped
[in] Ignored; set to NULL.
• Return Values
Nonzero indicates success. Zero indicates failure. To get extended
error information, call GetLastError.
45
Appendix A
A.2 How to Use the Control Code
There are 6 control codes for the operation codes in the WDT driver.
A.2.1 IOCTL _WDT_ENABLE:
Enables the Watchdog timer on your application. By default, if the
Watchdog timer is enabled, the WDT driver will automatically trigger
itself after the specified period and your application does not need to trigger the Watchdog timer in this situation.
lpInBuffer : unused.
nInBufferSize: unused.
lpOutBuffer: unused.
nOutBufferSize: unused.
A.2.2 IOCTL _WDT_DISABLE:
Disables the Watchdog time on your application.
lpInBuffer : unused.
nInBufferSize: unused.
lpOutBuffer: unused.
nOutBufferSize: unused.
A.2.3 IOCTL_WDT_STROBE:
Triggers the Watchdog. If your application uses IOCTL_WDT_ENABLE
to enable the Watchdog first and then sends IOCTL_WDT_REBOOT to
the WDT driver, your application must trigger the Watchdog once during
the Watchdog timer period. If your application has not triggered at the
specified period, the device will reboot automatically.
lpInBuffer: unused.
nInBufferSize: unused.
lpOutBuffer: unused.
nOutBufferSize: unused.
TPC-30/32 Series User Manual
46
A.2.4 IOCTL_WDT_GETTIMEOUT:
Gets the Watchdog time setting.
lpInBuffer: unused.
nInBufferSize: unused.
lpOutBuffer: The DWORD pointer to your Watchdog time setting. The
Watchdog time setting is just a number. 0 means 2 seconds, 1 means 5
seconds, 2 means 10 seconds, 3 means 15 seconds, 4 means 30 seconds,
others means 40 seconds. The default setting is 5 seconds.
nOutBufferSize: unused.
A.2.5 IOCTL_WDT_SETTIMEOUT:
Sets the Watchdog time setting.
lpInBuffer : The DWORD pointer to your Watchdog time setting. The
Watchdog time setting is just a number. 0 means 2 seconds, 1 means 5
seconds, 2 means 10 seconds, 3 means 15 seconds, 4 means 30 seconds,
others means 40 seconds. The default setting is 5 seconds.
nInBufferSize:.unused.
lpOutBuffer: unused.
nOutBufferSize: unused.
A.2.6 IOCTL_WDT_REBOOT:
If you want your application to trigger the Watchdog by itself, please use
IOCTL_WDT_REBOOT to notify the WDT driver. Otherwise, the WDT
will trigger itself automatically.
lpInBuffer :unused.
nInBufferSize: unused.
lpOutBuffer: unused.
nOutBufferSize: unused.
