Registry device policy

The Windows Mobile/CE registry stores data about apps, drivers, user preferences, and configuration settings. In XenMobile, you can define the registry keys and values that let you administer Windows Mobile/CE devices.

To add or configure this policy, go to Configure > Device Policies. For more information, see Device policies.

Windows Mobile/CE settings

For each registry key or registry key/value pair you want to add, click Add and do the following:

  • Registry key path: Type the full path for the registry key. For example, type HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows to specify the route to the Windows key from the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE root key.
  • Registry value name: Type the name for the registry key value. For example, type ProgramFilesDir to add that value name to the registry key path HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion. If you leave this field blank, it means that you are adding a registry key and not a registry key/value pair.
  • Type: In the list, click the data type for the value. The default is DWORD. Possible options are:
    • DWORD: A 32-bit unsigned integer.
    • String: Any string.
    • Extended string: A string value that can contain environment variables like %TEMP% or %USERPROFILE%.
    • Binary: Any arbitrary binary data.
  • Value: Type the value associated with Registry value name. For example, to specify the value of ProgramFilesDir, type C:\Program Files.
  • Click Save to save the registry key information or click Cancel to not save the registry key information.
