Q: How can I tell what build of CE is loaded on my system?

There are two methods:

  1. If you have the debug port connected to your system...

    ...observe the output during boot. The final messages during boot will indicate the version number. Here is an example:
    Microsoft Windows CE Ver. 3.0 (build 126)

    ADS BITSY Windows CE Ver.(3.20)
    This output indicates that your system is loaded with ADS Bitsy CE build 3.20 of Microsoft Windows CE 3.0.

  2. If you don't have a debug port connected, but have a display... can still determine the ADS build and CE version.

    To determine the ADS build:

    - Run RegEdit.exe (e.g. Start menu -> Run..., then select from drop-down list or Browse... the \windows folder
    - Tap the "+" next to the key, "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE"
    - Tap the "+" next to the subkey, "Platform"
    - Select (tap) the subkey with your product's name (e.g. "Bitsy")
    - The data for the registry value named "ADSCEVerson" is the CE build number

    ADS builds follow the convention that the first digit is the same as the major release of CE. "3.xx" are CE 3.0 builds, while "4.xx" are CE.NET releases.

    To confirm the Microsoft CE version...

    - Open the Control Panel (e.g. Start -> Settings -> Control panel)
    - Run the "System" applet
    - The "General" tab displays the Microsoft Windows CE version number
