Hi
How to develop WIN CE4.2 appilcations using VS2003 for XScale PXA
Processor

I am trying to use Visual studio 2003 to develop a simple application
for Symbol MC1000 handheld device which has WINCE 4.2 and XScale PXA
Processor. I did install "Windows CE .NET Utilities v1.1 for Visual
Studio .NET 2003"

I create a Smart Device project using C# .NET frame work project built
and copied the executable (TestApp.exe) to the handheld device using
Active Sycnh. It is simple Hellow World application.When I execute that
I get the Error "TetApp.exe is not a valid CE Application". It works
fine on emulator

Is just Visual Studio 2003 is enough for Creating applications for
WINCE 4.2 or do I need Platform Builder also.
Am I missing something

Thanks for any help or ponters I can get

Thanks
-Newbie

It must be Studio 2003 Professional. You get Smart Device Project
templates. Create your project with one of those (seems like you did) then
deploy. The device obviously must have CF 1.0 installed.

I do have 2003 Professional. CF 1.0 is istalled on the Device. Deploy
is not working from Visual studio.It gives error "Cannot establish a
connection. Be sure the device is physically connected to the
development computer". I have to copy using Active Synch only. :-(

There's no reason it shouldn't run if the CF is installed and you used a
Smart Device template. The error you report sounds more like a native app
targeting the wrong processor - that's just not possible with the CF.

I found the problem. I didn't have service pack 3. Looks like it fixed
it. Thanks a lot
