wachi, the answer is no.

Answer me a few things: how much memory does your Win98 machine have? Would more be better? Don't a few applications require at least 32Mb ?

Now consider a tiny handhelp with 2Mb of RAM. How do you expect an application that is often 2MB in file size to run on such machine?

If you're interested in WinCE development, read this article I wrote a while ago:

Well, Brainware, do you know the Toshiba Libretto? It's just slightly larger than a WinCE machine (if not the same size), but runs the full blown version of Windows 98.

Considering its size, it's an incredible machine and the first time I saw (and used it), I  was really impressed. It's a serious option for those who need a handheld that doesn't lack the computing power (the Libretto features a Pentium MMX 233Mhz!!!).

I agree with your commits (had already read your artical, before posting this question).

But can you tell me then, Why? is it possible for a Visual Basic developer to write application for Windows CE (not to speek about Visual C++).

Like you know VB is an interpreter, slower than Delphi code.

And todays Handhandleds can handle 16 Mb RAM (the new Jordan handled)

I totaly think its possible...if VB can don it way not Delphi ?
