Additional Notes

There are a couple of important notes regarding the installation procedures.

After executing the CE_Grid.exe file to extract the files, be sure to run the setup.exe file to ensure that the files are copied to the correct locations.

NOTE: This overwrites the original MSCEGrid.dll files installed with VBCE. If you want to manually replace the files, copy the MSCEGrid.dll file from the location to which it was extracted to the following (default) location:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio\VB98\VBCE\Bin\<cpu>\Controls

When targeting Windows CE devices running MIPS processors, it might be necessary to manually copy the updated MSCEGrid.dll files from the 39xx.b directory to the 41xx.b directory. This becomes apparent if errors occur when registering the MSCEGrid.dll on the device.

Please note also that the updated MSCEGrid.dll files are for the remote devices only. An emulation version of the file is not available.
