Thanks Simon for your reply.... how can i detect which version o CF has the
device in my Setup project (VS 2005 ) because, i´d ike to ommit the
installation of the CF if the device had it. (detect on installation
process )

Check registry key:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NETCompactFramework] as sadly there
is no function built into any version the the framework or the OS that will
give you this information.

You will have a DWORD for each version of the CF installed (if any).

RAPI is definitely the way to go.
