- Platform Builder notes
USB and SMCLIB layers have to be manually included into the Platform Builder project. In order to use these layers you have to include :
- SmartCard Component
- SCM Microsystem SCR300 - USB Smart Card Reader
- USB Host Component (UHCI). This component can only be included if 2.b) has been done.
Then you can include GemCCID.dll and GemCCID1004.reg into PB project. GemCCID.reg declares the GemPCTwin, GemPCUSB and GemPCKey readers. This file has to be included into the Platform Builder project if you want the Gemplus CCID smartcard reader to be automatically recognized by the platform when plugged in. Otherwise, Windows CE will prompt you for a filename, type in "gemccid" in this case.
- Release notes
- Version 126.96.36.199: This is the initial driver version.
- Version 188.8.131.52: Last version. The modifications done on the driver do not modify functional behaviour. Only registering method has been modified.
- User notes (known deviations)
Cold Reset Delay Option is not used by the driver. Whatever the value,
the driver will not apply any delay during Cold Reset.

This is a known limitation for Windows CE versions <= 4.1, Windows CE 4.2 or 5.0 must be used instead.
