You can use Shortcuts to start programs with command parameters from the AutoRun folder.
Example Shortcut file (.lnk) for using Remote Display via Ethernet:
42#"\USB HD\CERDISP2.EXE" –h192.168.104.43 –c
Example Shortcut file (.lnk) for debug with a Microsoft Virtual PC via Ethernet:
64#"\USB HD\cemgrc.EXE" /s /t:tcpipc.dll /q /d:192.168.104.43:2000
If you edit a shortcut in WinCE with the "Windows Explorer" file manager, you may run into the following issue:
Your changes seem not being saved, but instead another file is created.
The reason is that when known file extensions are not displayed, the shortcut is stored in a file with the same basename but without extension resulting in two files, the original shortcut.lnk and shortcut.
You have two options:
If you do not required a command parameter you can also just right click on the .exe you like to launch, select copy. Now go to the place where you like to have the short cut and press right click again. Now select Past Shortcut.
