Hello,

I have to develop a software application for a device running WCE 3.0.
Curently, I have expertise in developing at .NET Compact Framework. Now, what
version (if any) is supported by WCE 3.0?

What are my alternatives?

Kindly Regards,

Igor

Plain old Windows CE 3.0? None. CE4.2 supports .NET CF 1.0... Different
answer for Windows Mobile, though (slightly).

Hello Paul,

Thank you for the reply back.

I heard that CodePlex has a solution for .NET 1 SP3 running on WCE 2.X. I
think this is the link:

http://netcfwince200.codeplex.com/

What do you think? How reliable is this? Will it work on WCE 3.0?

Regards,

Igor,

In addition to Paul's reply, I'd suggest Embedded VC++ for CE 3.0. (Actually
I'd suggest getting newer devices, but I assume that's not an option?)

You don't want to fool with that, or even CE3, is my opinion. You're five
versions out of date working with CE3 (CE4, 4.1, 4.2, 5.0, and 6.0), and,
even if you can find someone who is able to shoehorn .NET CF into the
device, what if something goes wrong? Whose fault is it? Who will support
you? Why are you trying to do this? It seems to me that you should be able
to find a CE5 or later device, if you just want to play with .NET CF. If
you're stuck with CE3 on some existing device, just use native C++.

Hello,

I have already contacted the device manufacturer. The product is still been
manufactured, but it seems they did not port the operating system. Let see
what kind of answers will I have. It is really a shame, since I had worked
many times with CE 4.1 and 5.0..... it's like moving back ages !!!

By the way.. do you know if there is support for Web Server on WCE 3.0?

Regards,

Igor

Igor,

What do you need to do on the Web with CE 3.0? I'm afraid I've pretty much
forgotten that whole part of my life, and the devices I used at that time
weren't connected to the internet. The first thing I'd do if I were forced
to go back to native code and CE 3 would be to find one of Doug Boling's
Programming Windows CE from that era.
