Issue / Question

How to automatically enable Bluetooth radio after a cold boot?

Applicable To

MC32N0 CE7.0

MC92N0 CE7.0

Resolution / Answer


A cold boot also restarts the MC32/92, but erases all stored records and entries from RAM. In addition, it returns formats, preferences and other settings to the factory default settings.
All added applications and all stored data are removed.

By default, the Bluetooth radio is disabled. To keep it enabled even after a cold boot, apply the following registry:


A. Microsoft Bluetooth Stack

"MSStackLastState" = dword:00000001 

B. Stonestreet One Bluetooth Stack (BTExplorer)

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Stonestreet One\BTExplorer\Device Settings]
"LastPowerState" = dword:00000001
