Developing for Win CE.Net 4.2


Z

Zahid

Hi,

I have been developing an app for PocketPC 2002 using
VS.Net 2003. I have a PocketPC 2002 and a Pocket PC 2003.
My pocketPC 2003 states its version 4.20.1081 - does that
mean its WinCE 4.20? is this the same as WinCE.Net 4.20?

Can someone tell me how to develop apps using VS.Net 2003
for the Windows CE.Net platform? Can I simply install my
PocketPC 2002/3 app onto a WinCE.Net handheld?

Also, I want to install the compact framework onto a
WinCE.NET 4.2 device to show to see how my app functions
on it - where can I get the .Net CF ? is there a
redistributable?

Thanks in advance.

PPC 2003 runs on top of WIndows CE 4.20, PPC 2002 and PPC run on top of
Windows CE 3.0.

As long as your application does not make use of PPC specific functionality
you should be able to run it on a Windows CE.NET 4.2 device as well.

The different .NET CF redistributables are part of VS.NET 2003, take a look
at the following subdirectory (supposing you used the default installation
options): C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET
2003\CompactFrameworkSDK\v1.0.5000\Windows CE\wce400. Under this folder you
will see different subdirectories with .NET CF cab files for each of the
supported processors.

If you want to make use of the .NET CF SP1 redistributable, you can find it
here for download:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/mobility/downloads/updates/default.aspx. You find
both end user and developer redistributables on that link.

Thanks Maarten,

Just what I needed.

Please can you explain the difference between the End
User redistributable and the developer redistributable.
Also can you please give an example of a PocketPC
specific functionality?

Thanks in advance.

Anthing that deals with the PPC APIs (SHxxxx, like SHFullScreen) or uses the
Toolbar would be PPC-specific

Just today Alex Feinman explained the differences between the two types of
redistributables very clear in this NG, take a look at his post with this
