Solved: Windows 6.5 Lock screen command line or program in windows directory?

Does anyone know the command line command for the windows mobile 6.5 default lock screen, or if there is a program in the windows directory I can link to?

I don't want to use DeviceLock or SmartLock (had too many problems with landscape and such). I just want to use Rhodium Keyboard Configurator to map a key to the actual lock screen...I just can't find the actual program that launches it.

Thank you so much for your help.

Update: Solution found thanks to the thread contributers. Windows\EndKey.exe

I mapped Endkey.exe to my power key (click) using Rhodium Keyboard Config, and it's great.

When you press power, it vibrates and locks.
When the screen is locked and you press power, the lock screen turns on without vibrating...that is, it doesn't just relock the screen. Rhodium keyboard config must be being overridden by the lock screen, which ends up being perfect.

Then if the lock screen is showing and you press power, the screen powers off. Media player keeps playing. The volume keys are locked unless windows media player is running.

All in all, it works perfectly, and I don't have to use LockDevice or Smartlock.

Yes, it's called "End Key" and in the Windows directory. You'll see other end keys, but its the only Application End Key. I was the same, I loved and wanted to use the windows locks screen, so i created a shortcut from the windows directory in my start menu.

If I understand you correctly, then in the windows directory there is program called lockscreen.exe - you can map the keyboard to that program. You can also copy that program and paste a shortcut in the your programs directory (\Windows\Start Menu\Programs) and then use it via the Buttons option in Settings or as a program link on your screen.

Hope this helps.

Have you tried HOLDING your END key down for a few seconds? I can't remember if that was a STOCK setting or not...

I have long hold end key to activate PSShutXP. Thanks "EndKey.exe" was the one! I appreciate it. Was looking all over for that.

Re: Windows 6.5 Lock screen command line or program in windows directory?

Should this endkey.exe exist on Verizon models as well? I'm running Mr. X ROM and don't see this anywhere in the Windows folder.

If you're using something like resco explorer to look for the files, make sure that under the options-->browser that it's configure to show all hidden files. But I'm not sure because I have a sprint phone.

Re: Windows 6.5 Lock screen command line or program in windows directory?

Weird find. Went looking for EndKey.exe. Instead I found a shortcut called Long_End. Tried to run it and it told me EndKey.exe was missing...

As an update....I mapped Endkey.exe to my power key (click) using Rhodium Keyboard Config, and it's great.

When you press power, it vibrates and locks.
When the screen is locked and you press power, the lock screen turns on without vibrating...that is, it doesn't just relock the screen. Rhodium keyboard config must be being overridden by the lock screen, which ends up being perfect.

Then if the lock screen is showing and you press power, the screen powers off. Media player keeps playing. The volume keys are locked unless windows media player is running.

All in all, it works perfectly, and I don't have to use LockDevice or Smartlock.
