Hi,
If i create an application using Samrt Device->Windows CE 5.0 template and
deploy it on Pocket PC 2003 (Windows CE 4.2) devices, will the applicaiton
work without any problems? Currently my application works ok on two devices
that i have. I am not sure will i run into any unkwon problems later on
because template says 'A project for creating a .NET Compact Framework 2.0
forms application for Windows CE 5.0 and later'.
Thanks

It depends. If you use any WM 5.0 libraries or specific funtionality, then
no it won't work on a PPC03

Thank you.
Are there any side effects to use Smart Device-> Pocket PC 2003 for Windows
CE 5.0 devices (Other than not able to utilize WM 5.0 specific libraries)?

Well a "Windows CE 5.0 Device" can be vastly different than a Pocket PC or
WM device, so really the only way to know is to test.

I am sorry. I should have been more specific. I am only interested in Pocket
Pcs. I meant WM device or any pocket pc that runs on windows CE 5.0 (pocket
pcs that are customized by hardware vendors). I am thinking if my
application is targeted to platform Pocket Pc 2003, this should work on
Pocket PC 2003, WM 5.0, and customized pocket pcs that has windows ce 5.X.
Is this safe assumption?

It depends on the customizations. There's no 'yes' answer when you include
custom devices in the mix, only 'maybe'.
