Re: Tippacanoe, IN - Upgrading AVTS

To access the OS in WinCE 3.0 create a file called "Explorer.glb" on the pcmica card, insert the card into the unit and turn the unit on.  The unit will then display the desktop rather than run BallotStation. You can then go to the windows directory and select "control" and then "network" to set the ip address.
The other option is the setup a DHCP server on the Windows machine which will automatically configure the network card.

Subject: Tippacanoe, IN - Upgrading AVTS

Steve Corey is upgrading the AVTS units in Tippacanoe, IN; and is encountering a problem.
He is upgrading the AVTS units to Windows CE 3.00, then upgrading the AVTS software to 4.1.11.  No problems there.  However, after the upgrades, he cannot get any of the AVTS units to communicate via TCP/IP, to the host computer.  Since he has upgraded to Windows CE 3.00, the operating system cannot be broken into to set up the TCP/IP addresses.
Other than upgrading to a higher AVTS version, where you can put in the TCP/IP addresses, then going back to AVTS 4.1.11.  Is there any other way of putting in the TCP/IP addresses for communication to the host computer???
