if you are using VB6, you need VB CE:

if you are willing to use .Net (and I urge you on that way), see http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/device/overview.asp

If you're using Microsoft Pocket PC 2002 OS you need eVB.  You can download the eVB IDE software free from Microsoft.  I looks a lot like VB 6, though there are limitations.  For example, you have the power of VBScript with some APIs and a special version of ADO for database functionality.

In case you're not using Windows CE, but PalmOS (Palm & Visor handhelds), there is a suite called AppForge, which is actually an add-in for VB. You code in VB (using special controls - you don't use the regular textbox, label, etc.)

You can download a trial version at http://scripts.appforge.com/eval/afeval.asp

BTW, it also compiles to Windows CE if you do (or will) use Pocket PC.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
