Access data on WinCE device from PC

Hi.

I want to be able to achieve three things using .NET:

1 - Access the file system on Windows CE device from PC using
System.IO (.NET), like Explorer can.
2 - Access a SQL Server CE database using ADO.NET from software
running on the host PC
3 - Handle an event at the PC to indicate that a device has been sat
in its cradle

The device is running Windows CE 5.0, connected by USB. I'm
programming the PC software in C#.NET, framework version 2.0 (Visual
Studio 2005).

Anyone know if any of these three can be done.

Ta,

David

OpenNETCF.Desktop.Communication API from OpenNETCE will help you out
here.
2 - Access a SQL Server CE database using ADO.NET from software
running on the host PC

Use Primeworks-mobile.com DesktopSQLCe Tool, to connect to Device
Database from the Destkop. I use this software to sync. between
Desktop Database and SQL Mobile.
3 - Handle an event at the PC to indicate that a device has been sat
in its cradle

Dont exactly know how can do this, but there RAPI class inside
OpenNETCF.Desktop.Communication provides you the feature to detect if
the device is been connected through active-sync.

Haroon
