HOWTO: Build a System with an Optional Mouse Component
The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Windows NT Embedded 4.0
This article explains how to build a Windows NT Embedded 4.0 target system with an optionally attached mouse.
In order to specify that a mouse may or may not be attached to your Windows NT Embedded 4.0 target system, follow these steps:
- Open Target Designer and select the configuration that corresponds to your target device.
- In the component tree view under System\Shared System Components, select the Mouse Common component.
- From View menu, click Registry.
- In the registry view, right-click the following registry key:
- Click Modify. The Edit DWORD Data dialog box appears.
- In the Data edit field, replace the value shown with the value of 0 (the number zero). Click OK.
Note that the icon next to the ErrorControl registry key changes to indicate that you have manually changed this field.
- Check dependencies and rebuild.
- Now that the target image is built, you can redeploy your target system.
Under normal operation, you can build a system with or without a mouse. When you run a system that defines a mouse but does not include the physical mouse, an error message appears when you restart your computer. If you set the ErrorControl key to 0 (the number zero), this prevents the error message.
