Windows CE 4.2

Fred

Hello,

I use Visual Studio 2005.
Is it possible to develop a small application for windows ce 4.2 ? (I
didn't see the pda yet, that's what the owner gave me as a reference)
This application will need sql server CE.
If not, what would be the solution(s) ? Visual Studio 2003 ?
I discover the mobile world and I am a bit lost !

Thanks a lot for your help.

If you search the archives you'll find that you can develop and debug
against CE 4.2 with Studio 2005 if you manually install CF 2.0 SP1 on the
device first.

Thank you for your help.
I also found out there is no problem to install SQL Server CE 3.1 on
Windows CE 4.2

I'm unsure about the ability to access SQL Server CE 3.x from .NET CF 2.0,
however. As I recall, the classes for SQL in .NET CF 2.0 work with SQL
Mobile and later, not SQL CE 3.0 and earlier. Certainly .NET CF 1.0 will
work with that version of SQL CE.

Paul,

You're right. SqlCe 3.0 and 3.1 work with CF 2.0. SqlCe 3.5 works with CF
3.5, although I'm not sure if this is a hard limitation or just a VS 2008
beta 2 limitation. And SqlCe 2.0 works with CF 1.0.

SQL CE 3.5 also works with CF 2.0 - we pulled it into a recent project to
see if it fixed a SQL CE bug we found. It ran fine (though the bug was
still there).

Good to hear, Chris. I guess it's just VS 2008 beta 2 where that combination
doesn't deploy correctly.

Deploy? Heh, we did a manual deploy by copying the CAB and running the app
from Studio 05.

Thank you Ginny and Chris for these precisions.

I will get a pda with Windows CE 4.5 very soon to try.
For the moment, I use a recent pda with Windows CE 5.0 and everything
works fine.
Actually, I didn't have to deploy manually as the VS 2005 environment
did for me.

The manual deployment is not a problem. The application will run on
about 20 machines and is not for large distribution. But sure I will try
to build a setup including all the necessary components if I have some
time.
