Hi,

   I got one ARM Evaluator-7T Board. I wnat to port Windows CE into that. I have succesfully connected board to my intel PC with 9 Pin RS232 cable. I got codewarrior
for ARM & ARM eXtended Debugger(AXD, which do help to download the executed image in to ARM processor. This image will be taken by Angel Debugger( which is available in flash memory) to Execute with ARM processor.

   I want to know , how I can port Windows CE in to that processor, so that I can run windows CE programs with that ARM processor.

Thanks in advance,
kalyan .

Nobody ports windows but Microsoft. :-(  To attempt it without licenses, developer agreements etc, would be piracy and we can't discuss that here.

I'm not putting on a linux evangelist hat here, merely pointing out that without $$$$$$$$ linux is about your only hope of an operating system to get running on that. Maybe with Wine and other emulation packages, you might get pretty close to a CE clone. If you prune linux down extremely, it's probably possible to get it down to 10Mb running X. There is a lot in there you should not need. If you've got a 16Mb ROM that would leave 6Mb to cram wine etc into.

regards,

Road Warrior
