Stand-alone PPC 2002 Emulator for demo of apps and training purposes

Hi

I use the Pocket PC emulator in VS.Net 2003 for testing programs before deploying on the actual Pocket PC. The emulation looks great and I would like to be able to run it (and my application!) independently for demo purposes and in training courses, presenting the product to a group on a large PC screen rather than handing round expensive hardware.

Is this possible? emulator.exe (in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\CompactFrameworkSDK\ConnectionManager\Bin) does not start away from VS.

This would also be good for sending demo CD's to customers, though the copyright may have to be considered.

Hope someone can shed some light on this, it seems the PC folder does not contain a 'physical' collection of folders which could make the installaion of the program difficult.

Thanks in advance

Stewart

Hello,
the emulator must be started with parametr specifying os image file.

Emulator /CEImage os_image_file [/Skin skin_file]
    [/Video vparms] [/MemorySize memsize] [/Hostkey key]
    [/VMName titlebar] [/serialport1 serialport1map]
    [/serialport2 serialport2map]
    [/parallelport parallelportmap] [/Ethernet network]
    [/VMID emulator_id] [/SkinEngine skingengine_file]

for example:
Emulator.exe /CEImage "c:\program files\microsoft visual studio .net 2003\compactframeworksdk\connectionmanager\bin\Images\PocketPC\2002\1033\PPC2002.bin

For more info about running emulator alone see following url:

For transfering your application to the pocket pc emulator image try to start emulator, connect server share \\yourserver\folder, copy exe files to PPC emulator and run it.
