0. Description
  This package contains the CCID device driver for all Gemplus CCID (and only) smart card readers.
  With this package, you can:
    * (more dedicated to end-users)
      Add the support for a Gemplus CCID smart card readers to an existing x86 based Windows CE 4.x or 5.0 device.
      NOTE : this device MUST have the USB and SMCLIB layers installed !
    * (more dedicated to integrators)
      Add the support for a Gemplus CCID smart card readers to your Windows CE 4.x platform you are currently building with
      Platform Builder.

  It requires:
    * A WinCE 5.0 platform based on a x86 processor architecture,
    * A Gemplus CCID reader
  This package has been successfully tested on a Windows CE 5.0 CEPC with the following
  Gemplus CCID smart card readers :
    * GemPC Twin (USB)
    * GemPC USB-SL
    * GemPC Key
    * Gem e-Seal
    * Gemplus Keyboard USB Pro

  If you intend to use this driver with a different configuration (such as a non x86 platform), please contact the support
  at the address indicated at the very end of this document.

1. 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 :
      a) SmartCard Component
      b) SCM Microsystem SCR300 - USB Smart Card Reader
      c) USB Host Component (UHCI). This component can only be included if 1.b) has been done.
  Then you can include GemCCID.dll and GemCCID1005.reg into PB project.
  GemCCID1005.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.

2. Release notes
  Version  This is the initial driver version.
  Version  The modifications done on the driver do not modify functional behaviour. Only registering
  method has been modified.
  Version  WinCE 5.0 version. This driver used the last Microsoft library files and it is no more WinCE 4.x compliant.

3 - 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.

4. Troubleshooting
    When an USB composite device, such as a keyboard with an embbeded smart card, is plugged, only one USB device is functionnal.
    This is a known limitation for Windows CE versions <= 4.1, Windows CE 4.2 or 5.0 must be used instead.
