                    Known Issues:

                    o  Unable to upload APF files in to MSP server for MC95xx products.

                       Workaround: MC959x RevC/RevD OS size has been increased to 128MB OS. So the size of the APF file becomes 128MB. IIS has this limitation. User need to keep the APF file in

                        "Program Files\Motorola MSP\PackagesToInstall" directory directly.

                    o  While in Private call of Team Express user is able to hear key press events.

                        Workaround: Start>Settings>Control Panel>Volume&Sounds>Uncheck 'Key clicks'. After that the noise stops being heard.

                    o  Default Team Express Private call key is not mapped to any key. User must configure the key before starting the session.

 

Known issues in Platform:

- After team express installation, device takes 3 minutes to suspend.

- 'Datawedge' will not be installed on Cleanboot hence Titanium Screen would not have Datawedge entry for all terminals. However, Datawedge.cab is available in \Windows folder for the user to install.

  After installation, user can find Datawedge shortcut on the Titanium screen.

- If the user wants to install DataWedge at Clean Boot, then the following registry key should be put in .reg file and placed in \Application folder and then the terminal should be clean booted.

             [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Motorola\DWStartUp]

            "DontInstallOnStartUp"=dword:00000000

- 'GettingStarted' entry has been removed from the Titanium screen. After a cold/warm boot, 'GettingStarted' icon position will be moved lower in Start->Programs.

 

Known issues in the Windows Mobile Products:

- By default Input panel applet is not displayed in Start->Settings->Personal page due to a known issue from Microsoft wherein the user will not be able to close the Input panel applet.  

  As a workaround if enabled, the applet can be closed using the 'OK' button on the hard keyboard.

  Remove the below registry entry and reboot, to display the "Input" applet under Settings\Personal page.

   "Redirect"=""

   which is present in the following section:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\ControlPanel\Input]

-  When switching between Control Panel Applets, the previously opened Applet's title is shown on the currently opened applet.
