How do I get a widescreen or landscape display to show all of the Windows CE 5.0 dialog boxes?

The Windows CE 5.0 images we provide on the web do not properly display dialog boxes for landscape and widescreen PSP-style 480x272 resolution displays. The web images use the Quarter VGA Portrait resources, which assume a display at 320 pixels tall.

To fix this, load the .pbxml for the respective Windows image, remove the Quarter VGA portrait resources from the OSDesignView under "Shell and User Interface" -> "User Interface", and then Sysgen the build. Once those resources are removed, Windows CE will load using landscape QVGA resources that fit better on widescreen displays.
