.NET CF 2.0 not deployed with my application

Guest

I'm trying to deploy my VS 2005 application to a PPC 2003 and it does not
deploy .NET CF to the device. I do have 'Deploy the latest version of the
..NET Compact Framework (including Service Packs)' checked. What could be the
reason?
Thank you for any help.

Do you have a later version of the framework than is on the device on your
development PC? If the device has .NET CF 2.0 on it already, nothing will
happen, either. Give us the details...

I don't have any CF installed on the device. And when I deploy my app, I get
this error: "The specified program requires a newer version of Windows on the
device." I'm guessing this is because my app requires CF 2.0, which is not on
the device, so I'm trying to put it there...Maybe this message means
something else (I could not find anything useful about it on the Internet).

From what I know, VS 2005 should work with PPC 2003. When I was creating the
project I chose Smart Device\Pocket PC 2003 as the Project type.

Was the application compiled against the Windows Mobile 5 SDK, rather than
the PPC2003 SDK or something? I don't remember seeing that message before,
but I don't do a lot of Windows Mobile stuff.

Yes, it does. That's actually what I target frequently when building
applications for Windows CE (generic) 4.2.
