WinCE

Why need touch screen calibration every time when getting into WinCE system?

Answer: Because Embest provides 4.3-inch and 7-inch LCDs for the board, different LCDs use different touch screen parameters, so it needs calibration every time.
However, we can solve the problem as below:
1. Open the Hyper-terminal and boot the WinCE system, do touch screen calibration once and check the Hyper-terminal information, you will see similar sentence like "CalibrationData"="2016,1888 1056,864 992,2912 3040,2976 3072,896", these are parameters of touch screen.
2. Please add the touch screen parameters to BSP path: bsp/file/platform.reg
