Regarding the processor type , you can get some help from the OpenNETCF
code (framework). This uses a call to get the processor type for
getting process infos etc. Can check that.
I guess the compatibility of WCE 300 / 400 is based on the OS. Based on
that you can make out ..

Many of these issues can be addressed by modifying the inf files used
to create the CAB files. The VersionMin and VersionMax lines can
restrict a CAB file by operating system version (3.00 vs 4.xx). The
ProcessorType line is required and restricts a CAB by CPU

I infer you are trying to create a setup utility that runs on a
_desktop_. If modifying the inf files is not sufficient, you can write
a program that reads the registry on the _desktop_ to get such
information. See a 7 Feb 05 contribution by Peter Foot to a thread
called "How can I tell which OS Platform a CE device is using?" in
microsoft.public.pocketpc.developer.

Microsoft defines the Pocket PC platforms (2000, 2002, 2003, ...). The
specifications include restriction to ARM-compatible CPUs (i.e. _all_
Pocket PCs run ARM-compatible CPUs).
