    C++ on a Pocket PC?

    One of my friends recently got a Pocket PC and he said that you could upload windows programs strait onto it and they would work (given you have enough storage obviously.) But I was wondering if this was true for all programs, specifically a C++ compiler. If you were to write console or windows apps on it would they run the same without changing any code?

    You must use a PocketPC IDE to create PPC programs. The PPCs run a stripped down version of windows, so obviously the languages used to program them have to be stripped down. Go to microsoft.com and download the eMbedded Tools. It's free (about 300mb) and you can program in embedded c/vb. www.devforum.com is a good starting point as far as resources.

    I'll even do the work for you: Clicky

    The product key is at the bottom of the page.

    Wow...thanks for that link, ober. I had been looking for a VB IDE for Pocket PC for a week. Guess I just didn't search long enough.
    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein

    No problem. I've actually done a fair amount of development on that platform, although not much in the past year or so. I have all my code somewhere in case you wanted to see an example.

    Ok, I just wanted to bring this topic back up because I have failed you all in giving you a bad link. I just went there today and the site is www.devbuzz.com (forums.devbuzz.com), so I apologize for the bad info and hope this makes up for it!
